There is always talk about how many lbs of pull we shoot but I do not remember a thread that talked about how many FPS we all shoot.

The FPS, as we all know, is based on lbs of pull, length of pull, arrow weight, IBO/AMO bow speed, etc. IE., One person shooting 60 lbs but with 27" LOP will shoot less fps than a person shooting 55 lbs with a 32" LOP, given the same bow and arrow weight...so I was wondering...how many feet per second does everyone shoot?

I am at 273 fps.

I really don't care about my fps. I set my bow up for holding weight of about 18-20 pounds. On my 2 target bows that equates to 278fps and 293fps according to my AM program.

I don't know what its shooting, but I do have some concern because TAP estimates it at 308 (for the time being with the Gold Tips). I've got some 400, 430, and 470 ACEs that are heavy enough to get it under control before MY field season officially starts.

Don't know and don't care as long as it's able to get the arrow at least 80yds.

My thoughts exactly. I haven't chrono'd my bow, and have no plans to. It shoots what it shoots, and as long as I set my sight right:angry: it goes where I put the pin.

I can't believe we are discussing bow speed here.. isn't that one of those forbidden topics? WAY to close to Chewie territory... I don't give a rats you know what about how fast my bow shoots...
