Default Any Conquest Pro/2/3 or 4 shooters?

I always keep coming back to these bows. Like old comfy workboots!
This year I just can't find the time to really shoot much and get the bow as perfect as I like, but its starting to come around.
I have set-up my latest C4 (thanks to foggdog of MI) to about the best I have had it feeling.
A touch under-rotated cam, 30.75" draw, 64ish pounds, 320gr. arrow and just clocked it at 319fps here at home.
Wondering how others have these bows set-up on here and what kind of specs and speed are you getting?
Have any of you all ever hit on a certain cam roll or tuning secret that makes the bow come alive for you? Any tricks I may never have heard of?
Thanks, Rob.

I shoot a 6 year old Ovation, which, IMHO, looks almost identical to the Conquest 4. Shoot around 60, with 290 FPS on 400 LS's at 29.5".
Considering a new bow, but I wonder why the Conquest 4 doesn't have roller guides or string supressors like the Ovation?
Might have to go to the new paralell limb design like the Triumph.
I did put a aftermarket center-mount supressor on it, and it helped a lot.

Target shooters usually don't really want a roller guard.. the carbon rod is a better choice, and Mathews listened.. the Tuiumph has a carbon rod... sweet...

News to me. I thought a roller guide gave you more FPS? Then you got the friction of the guide running along the rod.
Doesn't make sense to me...

Has to do with torque snd recovery time..

target shooters usually aren't concerned with 1 or 2 feet per second...
