Listed speeds of bows
Chance for you knowledgeable guys to educate me on the topic of listed speeds for different bows. I assume that when manufacturers list the speeds their bow of capable of, they do so at the maximum poundage for the bow, correct?
What weight arrow is used, is there some sort of industry standard?
Also, if I were to use a chrony to measure my own arrow speeds with various setups, what would be the recommended distance to set the chrony up at? Is there an industry standard for that as well?
I have access to an F1 chrony that a friend uses for his guns, I assume if the arrow is shot at the proper distance, both from the device and above the sensor, it would work just as well as the ones sold exclusively for archery, correct? The only difference I can see between archery specific brands is that they come with lights above the diffusers for indoor shooting. Am I missing something here?
Thanks for any help you guys can give.
