    Default arrow speed

    stop at local bow shop for some arrow test use my new tri van contour, first test guy has sme of arrow to test was gold tip 5575 and hit 292 fps at 363 gr and i was impressed with my qs33 bow,
    i'm glad that i got arrow tune up for tri-van contour but will use this and invest for a tri van mirco adjust

    will have to take more test with eastson flatline and other arrow to see what speed i got on different weight at 30 DL but work on adjust and might trying get arrow rest go little back to give a short arrow shoot

    Not trying to be rude in any way, but let me see if I can redo this post a little hehe. I dont know if you fat-fingered the keyboard or were just in a hurry or both .

    I stopped at my local bow shop for some arrow tests. I wanted to use my new tri van contour. The first arrow I tested was a gold tip 5575 and I hit 292fps at 363 gr. I was impressed with my qs33 bow.
    I'm glad that I was all tuned up for my tri-van contour but now I think I will save up for a tri van mirco adjust

    I would like to run a few more tests using eastson flatline and other arrows to see what speeds I get at a 30" DL. I might adjust my arrow rest back a little to see how a shorter arrow shoots.

    Ok, hehe....

    Awesome that you got a tri-van. They look like a great rest. How do you like it so far?

    You are getting great speeds out of your bow! Flatlines should shoot faster because they are a very light arrow. Just be carefull...speed isn't everything.

    the tri van doing much better than whisker rest, i just like contour " static "
    it does give some speed gain, it doenst contact the fletching or anythings if tune right, straight and offset recommend on tri van contour but if want go vanishing rest u can go any fletch u like.

    I agree! Speed is nice but hardly the determining factor I use in my bow and/or setup
