    Default I think I'm gonna like my new Apex 7

    I just ran some numbers with OnTarget and this baby is gonna be fast.........


    60lb draw weight, 29 inch draw, 338gn arrow...........294 fps

    70lb draw weight, 29inch draw, 338 gn arrow..........312fps


    I won't even need to estimate distance with this baby......

    I just threw 80lbs into the draw weight box (Mathews does offer 80 lb limbs for the Apex 7) and it says 327fps!

    Not that I could hold that with 65% let-off, but I still thought it was pretty darned fast for a single cam.....

    The Apex 7 is a burner. Great shooter and very fast.

    I just can't believe Cody traded you.

    That A7 is an awesome bow. Get her all customized and get us some pics.

    Congrats on the new bow she is a real burner buddy.

    By the way at 70# that 338gr arrow is a little light. Just stating the obvious be careful.

    I believe I will keep the 60lb limbs on and be content with 290fps.....

    I knew you realized it just wanted to make sure others that read this did not try it and pay for it later.

    I just put my Switchy up for sale too, the C4 is fast enough for outdoors, so I'm get rid of the black beast! I shot the C4 through the chrony earlier, 327 grains @ 65 lbs, 286 - 288! The draw is 28 inches and fits my Evolution perfect!

    I know what you mean! I'm the same way, but, I really have no need for mine anymore. I do need a hunting bow and Bowman has got me itching for another Prestige. It's all Bowmans fault!!!!!

It doesn't look like I'll be home before the end of next month the way things are going....I hope it doesn't get too much dust on the case.
