    I Checked my speed today on my Creed. At  60.5 lbs 28″ DL. Which when checked on the draw board measured 28.5″. With the bow set to spec.  Shooting a GT 55/75 weighing 367grs. It shot 274, 274, 274. On a couple of shots it reached 275 and 276. But the majority of shots came in at 274 fps. With a 318gr arrow it shot 291fps. It was a little slower than I excepted but overall it done pretty good I guess.

    Mine at 29.5″ and 62# is shooting 305fps with a 335gr arrow for 3D!

    Thats kind of what I figured. So, my 5575 GT’s should still pack a nice punch on any unsuspecting herbivores. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_antlers}

    We are told by folks smarter than we that our kinetic energy is more important than our arrow speed.  I definitely like complete pass through shots, and you will be getting those with that setup.  I am shooting about 25 fps slower than yours with a 450g arrow and have no problems.

    I think you have nothing to worry about.

    Are you guys counting tip weight with these approximations? Just asking cause im shooting 340 spined easton st epics and im figuring they come in around 366 with 100 grain field points. im shooting a 27 inch draw and dont feel like im coming close to 300 fps.
    To take an animal with a bow is better than taking it with debit card.

I will give up some fps for what this bow gives me though, a smooth cycle, forgiving brace height, and lightweight design. Matt has outdone himself here.

    bckmstr your arrows are about 20 grains lighter than mine at about an inch shorter draw length than me shooting the close enough to the same poundage. Im guessing im slinging them roughly about your speed.
