By who's standards? The new Mathews claims 322 fps(approx)....not that much of difference.
Slow in my opinion is 250 fps or less in today's archery standards, but you can still kill just as many deer with one at 250fps than you can with one at 322fps.
In the archery world, that 22 fps is a large number. You have to remember that it is not a gun where 22 fps in nothing - Its a bow -.
Yes you can kill a lot of animals with a 250 fps bow and many have, my point is that it is on the slow side for today's bows. I did not say they were junk or anything, its just odd that a new bow manufacture would introduce a bow that is its main line and have it be on the bottom end of average for speed, Speed for which is one of the biggest selling points for a company to advertise their new "archery gidget".
I am not even a proponent of "you need to have the fastest bow" I am a target archer and hunter and do not have a fast bow by any means, Mine is rated at 310 IBO BUT I don't shoot 70 pounds, I shoot 47-50 pounds which makes my target bow very slow but very good on the X count.
Anyway.....Longwinters - Troll my a$$ ! I have a great deal of experience in the archery industry as well as tournament archery, I am quite sure I know bows, shooting them, selling them, working on them. I've probably built more bow strings than you have shot your bow. So don't be so free to toss out the "troll" issue in regards to me. I was just stating My opinion about their bows speed, It might very well be a great hunting bow and you might really like it, thats great enjoy it.
