Haven't had a chance to chrony mine yet, but judging from what other people get with a similar set up, I should be somewhere between 280-285 fps.

Shooting a Switchback, set at 30" with 70# draw weight flinging 418 grain arrows.

240fps

elite energy, 52.5lbs, 29"..smooth mods....422+ grain arrows

I prefer 220-230 but I guess this will do...may upgrade to heavier arrows later

With my Equalizer set at 50lbs draw weight and 25.5" draw length I am getting right at 250 fps. My arrows are about 230 grain, I believe. :wink:

Never chrono'd mine....

But OnTarget2 calculates (using pin gap) 288 fps.

I have trouble believeing this out of my setup:
Martin Phantom II
29.5" and 64#
shooting an arrow that I think to be around 350 grains.

I shoot 60lb from my Saber with 29inch GT XT,s an Bear razorheads.
I've no idea how fast it is.
This bow and all the others both Compound and recurve that I've owned have all shot right through about 95% of the animals I've taken.
Why would it even matter?
Isn't this a target shooting question?
You sure get some strange questions in this place:rolleyes:
