    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......:peace:

    That's real world!

    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.....:biggrin1:

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

    I just can't believe Cody traded you.:doh:

    That A7 is an awesome bow. Get her all customized and get us some pics.:biggrin1:

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

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

    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! :rockon:

    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!!!!!
