    So who's shooting over 280fps@ tourneys?

    What's the penalty for going over the 3% variation? :noidea: You just don't qualify for awards or invitationals?

    I'm a little over 300 fps but I don't plan on shooting in any big tourneys.

    So am I, about 303. W/ the Linecutters I have now, I'd have to add 70 grains to the front and lower my weight 2# just to get w/ in the 3%.

    I wish they would just make another class if they don't want want to raise the speed limit.

    Generally all the shoots around here are Club rules. Clubs differ, some recognize IBO scoring/rules and other ASA.

    ASA is 280 plus 3% and IBO is 5 Grains per pound and shoot what the speed is or declare 280. At the ASA shoots if you are caught you will be disqualified. They do spring a supprise Chronograph in here and there. And someone can file a grivence if they think you are to fast and have you chronographed but they have to pay a fee. If it is founded they get their fee back if they are wrong they lose their money. I would not run my speed right at the limit of the 3% either. I run no faster than 284 just in case some thing changes on the bow. Hope this helps.
