Fast enough to go through a deer. More importantly accurate enough to be right on it’s mark.

I wonder if the question would have been posed if the archer was only getting mid 250's?

I'm getting about 260fps from an '03 Razortec. Doesn't seem too fast compared to some of the speeds currently obtained, but I always managed pass-thru's with my darton sl-50 back in the early 80's -- and I was spittin' out the arrow then at only 175fps!

I dont believe the 329 fps... I have a new vectrix, 80 pounds with a 28.5 inch draw and shooting the 3-49/390ACC superlite arrows and am shooting 294 fps.. I know the 300 fps bows are out their I have seen them shot through the cronograph, but, as a bowshooter and hunter whenyour bow isset up for bowhunting it is really hard to break that 300 fps mark.. Especially if you have the things on your bow that you will have when the time comes that you are in the tree.. I am not saying they are not out their, because they are.. I have seen too many guys talk about their bows that shoot 330 fps and when it is nutcuttin time they shoot through the crony and all of a sudden it's, well they advertise that the bow shoots 330 fps, yes that is in their studios, no wind no nothing and maxed out with the lightest heads, arrows and crap... Where I am from accuracy is more important than speed, I know in the west and southwest you do need to deal with deer jumping the string, here if you are shooting a ethical distance, no deer should be able to do that...
