Never ran my bow through the chrono w/the new arrows. Never really cared. It is fast enough for my liking.

Hoyt Trykon 62 lbs (going to crank itup to 68) 28" draw (on string-single brass nock/G5 Meta peep 3/16ths/string loop/one silencer)
Limb Driver Arrow rest
Easton FMJ 400 434 grain

If anyone wants to give me an estimate, go for it

Normally I wouldn't know what my bow does but I just got my commander in from Ben and did a little testing....It shoots my 28" GT 5575's (390gr) @300 fps at 29.5" 65lb draw weight....I was impressed with this bow and it is the quietest bow I have ever been around....Thanks Ben!!!
