    We setup a Bowtech Tribute for a customer the other day. The bow was set at 29" with fast modules, 59.5" draw weight. It's a 70 turned down so a true 60# bow would be a touch faster.

    The arrow is a typical hunting shaft. Axis 400 that weighed in at 401grains. The bow shot 272fps. I don't know about the bows you guys hunt with, but at 59.5# that is smokin fast.

    After shooting through the chronograph, I was quickly calculating what that bow would shoot at my draw length and usual hunting draw weight.:rockon:

    Yes, I know the allegiance is about 10-12fps faster but I like the extra 1/2 brace height for hunting.

    Anything over 270 is fast in my opinion. I was at a Deermans 3D shoot a couple of weeks ago and a friend had his BlackKnight there, they put him on a chrono and at 68# with a 29" draw he was hitting 330 fps. Not sure of the arrow weight but at that speed it doesn't really matter. Obviouslly they put him in the speed class:biggrin1: Blazing

    I agree the BlackKnight is really fast. However, at that brace height any bow would be really fast. If I remember right it is like 5-3/4". Talk about a wrist slapper.

    My opinion is that any hunting rig should be 7" at the minimum.

    Tribute

    I agree the tribute is a very fast bow.:amen: It shoots great and is very accurate. I too like the extra BH most guys around here though are going with the alligience. If I were purchasing a Bowtech it would probably be the Tribute.:rockon: Just on the feel in my hands. :peace:

    speed pro arrows

    I shoot axis 400's with a 27.5 inch draw, 65# with a hoyt trykon, I shoot 265fps . I shoot some HHA speed pro arrows in my bow the other day and it shot 295 they added 30 fps thats alot.. I was at the pro shop and he wanted to see what type of difference they made in my bow, I'd never use those arrows myself I just feel that they would break way to easy.. But man there are fast..

    When you say more you are talking speed correct? Assuming so, Yes, I could easily be pushing 300fps if I pulled 70lbs. I don't have any figures to tell you your exact speed, but I'll bet if you had the same setup in a tribute you would be close to the 300 mark, depending on the modules you select. Go to a dealer and try it out, get some numbers. Just remeber speed isn't everything(but it helps!!!).

    The speed of the Tribute and Allegiance isn't the only impressive thing about these bows. The lack of noise, lack of vibration/recoil, accuracy, module options, camo options, grip options are all impressive. BowTech also contribute a portion of each Tribute sold to a fund benefitting the families of US Soldiers. :peace:
