    Anyone know how fast a Drenalin should shoot with nothing on the string except a SuperPeep? Here is some info to go with it. The arrows weigh 416 grains the draw length is 27.5 and the limbs are at 60lbs. Stock Mathews Drenalin. I think the meter thing at Scheels is way off.

    im almost ashamed to say that Scheels meter was not wrong then 243, 247, 246. i guess if i lose the whisker biscuit i would gain 2-3 fps. how light can a person go on arrows?

    drop down to about 350-360 grains. that'll put you at around 6 gr/lb and you should pick up 20-25 fps.

    Shoot with 60lb limbs Id drop those suckers to 300 grains and let em fly. My boss is still only seeing close to 290 with 350 grain at 70lb and 28"

    i cant be the only sawed off short armed fat person out here who is disapointed with arrow speed i suppose. my field tip is 100 grains i could trim my arrows maybe a half inch or so what would that get me? I think my arrows are cut to 29" at the moment.

    if you start cutting them shorter, you are going to run into tuning and flight issues.....(most likely)
