Default Best of the "fast" bows?

I was wondering if there was a consensus on who made the best of the fast bows? Say, 330 fps or faster...

I know that narrows it down, but many bows seem to be rated to 315 or more. Even my lowly Tomkat was advertised at around 310 or so.

You won't find a consensus on any subject here...especially bows.

I know, but this way I can stir the pot and still appear to be an uninvolved party

Maybe, in the interest of making this thread work, we should come up with a legitimate list of the bows out there that are on the list for this category. I am sure with all of the different opinions we have in here, we could at least get a list and then go from there.

Not to stir the pot, which might be the intention from the thread starter.

I will nominate the Darton Pro 3000
If you haven't shot this bow yet, give it a try. Freaking Awesome!

No, I was just thinking about the future- perhaps now that my form is getting settled in a little and my groups are starting to tighten some I could buy another bow.

Not that many on this site will let you forget about them, but the 82nd and the 101st by Bowtech.

I shoot the 101 and it has been great for me.

Also in that group, the Allegiance, which is a super hunting bow, so I am told. I believe I may have to get an 09 if they put on out.
