Alright! No mud slingin here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One another post a guy stated that a Swithback (XT or original SB) was faster than a Tribute with the smooth mods.
Is this a big deal? NO! But I got to wondering, so...
What do you guys think. SAme set up, arrow weight,... Which one is faster? My thoughts were the Tribute.

tribute by around 8-12 fps. i would guess, because the speed mods are around 18-20 fps faster..the smooth mods generally are 8-10 fps. slower on the bowtechs...

I'm thinking the difference isn't enough to worry about. I love the Tribute with the Smooth Mods!

I have an XT, I think it's fast, but from what I've read the Bowtech's have the speed advantage.

bow

The speeds listed were shot through a M35 Oehler 15 times - avg taken- the Weight was measured with a Coffey Force Gauge- 30" true draw length

Were the strings set up the same, also were they the same arrows? Just curious as I am suprised they are that different.
Oh, and I don't have a dog in the fight, I shoot a Hoyt.

Thanks for these posts. Sounds like your test was pretty good. Was it with bare string Matthews and the BowTech with the Hush kit?

the test will be up next wk -21 bows. Both the bows were received direct from the Factory- I believe the hush kit was installed and the mathews XT was bare. Again many bows, my memory is fading at this moment

bow

vabowhntr- the strings on each bow were what is currently provided from the factory - no modifications to the setups other than DL and DW. The arrows were GoldTip Pro X Cutters -350 grain (all were measured-weight- and shot in sequence). and by the way Hoyt was on it.

My XT shoots a 330 grain arrow, 65#'s, 30 1/4" draw AMO, not true, at 311 fps, nothing on string. Right out of the box.

That's 5 grains over IBO for 65 lbs.

:mg:

I am very very very happy with this setup at the moment. :shade:

Unfortunately, hunting season has opened and various other commitments have kept me from delivering some pain to the local yocals with that bad boy. :thumb:

I'm dying to shoot a round with it.

It shoots and holds like a dream.

I was having a tad bit of arm slap with it at first, :confused: , but I changed cable slides and put on a wrist strap and it is archery nirvana now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have fun with it man and good luck with the hunting! I know Nick wants to get down and shoot a round with you next year. Something about letting you beat him with his old bow.:embara:
