  • Testing Parameters:

    A force-draw curve was obtained from the reviewed bow, using a digital force gauge with a resolution of 0.1 lbs. Measured bow weight was rounded to the next half pound.
    The different arrow speeds were achieved with the bow shot from a shooting machine with a mechanical release. The string was pulled to 28 inches A.T.A. (formerly A.M.O.) which is 26-1/4 inches from the string to the deepest point of the grip.
    The (3) arrows for the first part of speed testing had a weight of  9  grains per pound of measured (not stated) draw weight. The (3) arrows for the second part of speed testing had a weight of  6  grains per pound of measured (not stated) draw weight. Speed measurements were taken 3 feet in front of the back of the bow with two chronographs set up in a tandem configuration. Each arrow was shot a minimum of 6 times and overall achieved speeds were rounded to the next whole digit.
    The bow was set up with my standard 16 strand Fast-Flight string, that features one metal crimp-on nocking point locator but no other attachments, like silencers, kisser button, etc.
    Note: Numerous tests over the years showed that arrow speeds achieved with my finger release, using a clicker, run 5 fps lower on average, than the arrow speeds with a mechanical release.
