"Speed thrills , accuracy kills , and that's the bottom line in anybody's book ." -Kevin

You are right, but having a faster/flatter shooting bow helps make you more accurate. If you only need one pin out to 30 yards, that sure is nice and makes whitetails a one pin animal... at least the vast majority of the time. So, speed does have functional uses too.

I shoot a Shadow bow by Unlimited Archery. It clocks in at 326fps hunt ready at 64# and 28". The bow is a dual cam bow at 40" ata with a 6 3/8 brace. It is a bit on the radical side but a pleasure to shoot and very forgiving.

My Tribute is shooting 297 fps at 70lbs 29"drawwith (I believe) a 360 grain GT. I'm gonna crank it down a bit more than likely until season comes.
