I have a new Carbon Element RKT....they have been around for a while now, I am sure lots of you have played with them
Any tips on getting more SPEED......string changes...weight placement or any other thing that will pick up a few feet/sec
Thanks Doug

Lighter arrowed
Longer draw length
Less stuff on your string
More poundage.
That bow was never designed as a speed will bow.

Not gonna be able to do anything to make a noticeable diff besides lighter arrows and higher lbs...tweaking it will maybe get you a couple fps, but unless u shoot thru a chrono ull never know the diff

8190 strings and e-buttons. You need a chrono to play with the e-button location on the string. All of this might get you 8fps.

victory vforce hv arrows will help
I just made up a dozen of these arrows to regain some lost velocity after changing out the 60lb limbs on my bow to 50lb limbs. The reduction in total arrow weight (shaft/insert/nock/vanes) helped considerably to recover the lost speed.

arrows are flatline 400 scaled at 300gr
60lbs
Chrono 25 shots 316.6-318.8fps
I only get 10 fps more out this combo in my Katera. You are fine. In fact, you probably be better with a heavier arrow in the upper 290's.

I was only getting 309fps with last years carbon element at 71 lbs 29dl 350gr arrow.atlest your bow has a smooth draw.any bow under 7" bh should be a speed bow .One of my best friend has an 08 DS xforce thats getting 332fps with a 7" bh and a smoother draw than the 2011 cb
