    Default Bow Speeds

    I know there is more to a bow than speed but I would like your thoughts on a speed question. I just bought a PSE revenge, the IBO speed is 340. I have been shooting it at 60lbs, 28” draw, with a 340 gr arrow. I checked the speed today and it was 285. My bow seems to be faster than people I shoot with and they say their bows are shooting 300+. Does 285 sound about right, do you think people many times over estimate their bow speeds? When I hear a person say they get 350 fps and they shoot 29” and 60s I know that can’t be right. Just a thought from everyone one on real bow speeds. Thanks

    I shoot 59# 29" and a 376gr arrow - I was either 276 or 278 across the Chronograph; my Bow is listed at 320fps so your speed seems in the ball park, maybe a tick low; kind of depends on what all is on the string. I don't worry much about speed.

    Thanks for the replys guys. I called PSE after I posted this. They used a speed calculator and put in my numbers. They came up with 286, very close. It shoots nice so it's fast enough. Have a good week.

    I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
