Default Fastest Bow

Alright, my buddy and I here in Iraq are having a small debate. I told him I think the BowTech 82nd Airborne is the fastest bow made right now and he disagrees. He can't tell me a faster bow but still doesn't agree. Can we get some help on this? Thanks

From what I have seen on the various boards (if you can believe what people post), it would either be the 82nd Airborne, or the X-Force with the 6 inch brace height.

my gold tips I cut at 28.5 only weigh 280 without the tip so you will get some good speed from those arrows

I thought about the PSE x force, but man its pricey and I hear some dont like the draw and its not very forgiving? But then again, some love it

Petersens Bowhunting magazine tested the 82nd and the X Force, the X Force was 1 fps faster.

Elite GT500 is IBO rated 346 fps. I shoot the Bowtech 82nd, and the GT500 is faster through the chrono at shorter than the IBO draw lengths.
