    Default We setup Tribute for a customer, wow it's fast.

    We setup a Bowtech Tribute for a customer the other day. The bow was set at 29" with fast modules, 59.5" draw weight. It's a 70 turned down so a true 60# bow would be a touch faster.

    The arrow is a typical hunting shaft. Axis 400 that weighed in at 401grains. The bow shot 272fps. I don't know about the bows you guys hunt with, but at 59.5# that is smokin fast.

    After shooting through the chronograph, I was quickly calculating what that bow would shoot at my draw length and usual hunting draw weight.

    Yes, I know the allegiance is about 10-12fps faster but I like the extra 1/2 brace height for hunting.

    Anything over 270 is fast in my opinion. I was at a Deermans 3D shoot a couple of weeks ago and a friend had his BlackKnight there, they put him on a chrono and at 68# with a 29" draw he was hitting 330 fps. Not sure of the arrow weight but at that speed it doesn't really matter. Obviouslly they put him in the speed class Blazing

    I agree the BlackKnight is really fast. However, at that brace height any bow would be really fast. If I remember right it is like 5-3/4". Talk about a wrist slapper.

    My opinion is that any hunting rig should be 7" at the minimum.

    Default Tribute

    I agree the tribute is a very fast bow. It shoots great and is very accurate. I too like the extra BH most guys around here though are going with the alligience. If I were purchasing a Bowtech it would probably be the Tribute. Just on the feel in my hands.

    Default speed pro arrows

    I shoot axis 400's with a 27.5 inch draw, 65# with a hoyt trykon, I shoot 265fps . I shoot some HHA speed pro arrows in my bow the other day and it shot 295 they added 30 fps thats alot.. I was at the pro shop and he wanted to see what type of difference they made in my bow, I'd never use those arrows myself I just feel that they would break way to easy.. But man there are fast..

    When you say more you are talking speed correct? Assuming so, Yes, I could easily be pushing 300fps if I pulled 70lbs. I don't have any figures to tell you your exact speed, but I'll bet if you had the same setup in a tribute you would be close to the 300 mark, depending on the modules you select. Go to a dealer and try it out, get some numbers. Just remeber speed isn't everything(but it helps!!!).
