It's not far off.
I came up with 260fps, allowing for loop and peep etc on the string.

At 254fps, the KE is actually 62ft/lb
Lowering the arrow weight can also lower KE, and will definitely lower momentum.
If the bow shoots accurately, I would leave it as is.
Speed is not everything.

Consider yourself lucky

You already have a good shooting bow, what more can a guy ask for? If you want speed, then get a speed bow, spend a lot of money, get frustrated, and then go pick up your DXT for shooting enjoyment. Let me see... what would I do?

Accuracy is what really matters :teeth: Don't get caught up in the speed game.

Sounds like a good set up!
When you shoot the bow does it "feel" fast?
does that arrow get there in a hurry?
Don't get caught up in the over inflated IBO #s companies advertise they are
just trying to move thier product!
If your comfortable on the draw, hitting the target at the distances you want to shoot and it all feels good Enjoy!

Sounds like enough to get the job done.
