What is your DL. If it is 30", I calculated that a 490gr arrow would put you right at 300fps.

My Omen is shooting 287fps at 66#'s with a 530gr. arrow! If I bumped it up to 70 it would be all over 300fps with that HEAVY arrow setup. Its for sale if you are interested in it.

IBO says it shoots 360... You better shoot a heavy thick aluminum arrow.. bigger the arrow the more you have to crack a ring!
