    With my new arrows I expect a whopping 220fps.. :D

    Id never go back to that slow, Im old enough to remember just how far a deer can duck an arrow at those speeds.

    And yes, 80 to 100 fps does make a difference cause deer are like fast.[/quote:2tzhrokr]

    Jumping the string; They can do it at 300fps, and still
    avoid an arrow.. :whistle

    My new 600+ grain arrows will pack a mean punch.. :D[/quote:2tzhrokr]

    Im hitting 327 and yes they “can” still duck but they got less time to jump and every nanosecond counts.[/quote:2tzhrokr]They’ll never hear the Logs leave the Bow :D[/quote:2tzhrokr]
    Alaskan’s or Safari’s, Jeff? :whistle ;)

    Yes — it makes some difference in my buying decision but it’s not the first thing on my list for buying a particular bow.

    I wouldn’t go out on purpose to buy a slower bow but more to the combination of adjustable accuracy a faster bow offers and the potential of increased KE that a great shooting faster bow can offer using your existing setup of arrows. [=}=]

    It really doesn’t matter. Slow, heavy arrows blow through deer sized game easily. Fast, light arrows blow through deer sized game animals easily. The slow, heavy camp has to defend themselves against the fast, light camp and vice versa. The argument of which is best will go on for a long time and there will never be a clear cut winner. Shoot what you want, shoot what your buddy shoots, shoot whatever because the bottom line is if you put a well placed shot on a game animal with a sharp broadhead, it will die. [=}=]

    Amen, preach it brother. :D

    Both ways do work, I know Ive done it either way and I only change around for change.

    Not so sure the animal or the ground that I pull my arrow out of really care about speed…………………………………………………………………
    With that said I do not care about how fast my bow shoots but how accurate I can shoot my bow. I believe some bow companies try to use
    speed as a replacement for shortcoming’s some bow hunters may posses.
