Well, as most of you know, Dodgetech and myself have a bet going on about the speed of my bow. He says no more than 260, I say I'm closer to 280. Set up:

Mathews SQ2
30" Draw Length
70# Draw Weight
406 grain arrow (with tip)



So, tomorrow is judgement day. If he is right, I owe him a beer and I have to admit I was wrong, if I am right, he has to run around Etna in a pair of underwear screaming PA is the king, admit he was wrong, and he also has to cut me a check for $3,673.21 . Boy, I hope I win. :D


Stay tuned

Smoke em

I think your set up will smoke 260 easy, good luck!!! Heck my vipertec at only 62lbs. with a 353gr. GT was shooting 277fps.
Take him to the cleaners :teeth: :wink:

If he says 260 and you say 280, Then 271 and up, you win. 269 and down, he wins. 270 on the dot, laugh your asses off and buy each other a beer and a shot!! :beer: :wink: :smile:

Welp, I am meeting my buddy @ 11:30 and we're headed out to get chronied.

Just talked to Dodgetech and he said he was talking to one of his buddies who is shooting in the 260's with a 70 lb. draw weight and a 27" arrow. That being said, I think I got this bet won. If not, oh well, it's all in fun.


I'll post the numbers a little later after we get back, so stay tuned to the dramatic ending of........

"As the Arrow Burns"

I think your estimate of 280 is really close, unless you have alot of garbage on your string.

Welp, I don't know if it's the Leeches on my string or what, but I was OFF lol


Final tally, shooting 266 fps with my set up


Dodgtech was closer than I was so he won I guess, but hey, who cares :tongue:

Yeah, we got some good laughs, but I may have the last laugh. As I type I am playing with the bow and trying to reduce weight on thw string and what not.

Frikkin Leeches are 60 grains for the pair :mg:

But I think I figured out a way around that ;)
