Default My Tribute came in!! I've got a few?? now

I received my Tribute yesterday.
I had specifically ordered a bow of at least 61# so I could try and pull off a 400+ grain arrow going 270+ with a 29” draw on a 60# bow. The Tribute provided this and them some.
With a loop and 2 string silencers on the string the bow
pulled off the following while at the shop-

Speed mods- 300 gr = 312fps
390 gr = 278.5 (beman 400’s)
405 gr = 274.2 (beman 340’s)

Smooth mods- 390 gr- 270
405 gr- 268


When I got home I shot each arrow (390 & 405)through my chrony and got a 278 & 274 with the speed mods.
Then while tuning the bow I made one minor adjustment (nock point was low)and picked up1.5 fps with the
390 going 280
& the
405 going 275
Dark crept on me and that’s where I stopped. I was grouping as tight as ever while playing at 20 yards.

Now I have to decide smooth or speed modules. Time will tell.

Two questions-
1. I noticed while switching mods back and forth that the smooth mods would not fully pick up my drop zone rest when the speed mods would (initilally set up with speed mods). Do the different mods (speed vs. smooth) require different draw post settings if they are of the same draw length?

2. The top cam has 2 dots showing as it should, but the bottom has1 full & one 1/2 (cut by limb) dot showing. If I was going to try and get the bottom cam back to 2 dotsshowing at rest where wouldI start?
I didn't fool with it (it got dark on me)and as good as it's shooting my not even do so, but IfI was going to I would twist what??

Before leaving the shop Ishot one of the other big name bows at 70# (69.9#) just to make sure my Tribute decision was correct, with a with a peep and a measured 29.25” draw (on a 29” cam)
It achieved the following-
390- 275.4
405- 272
After a couple of shot’s later I was convinced the Tribute would be riding home with me, nothing wrong with the others out there- the Tribute just does everything right for me. Smooth, accurate, quiet and fast.

For those helping me in the bow buying process, thanks y'all were right again!

Good to hear you are pleased with your purchase. I'm sort of shopping around for a new hunting bow. I also like to shoot heavier arrows but I only have a 27.5 draw. May go with the Allegiance. What kind of camo did you get?

The difference in the speed mod and the smooth mod will be less cable travel on the smooth module. The fast modules store more energy than the smooth by "working" the limbs more with a slightly larger profile and the smaller profile of the smooth will result in less cable travel.

All the better reason to try the Limb Driver from Vapor Trail

Chupa, bland ole run of the mill for me ( I like green in my camo and It has enough for my tatse)
Here's 3 of the only 4 arrowsI shot yesterday at 20 yards-




The forth was a 340 and left the hole off to the left. Looks like I'll be sticking with the 400's for now. Not too shabby for a2 day old bow.

Dave,

Check the poundage and let off on a scale and if they come out where they should beI wouldn't move anything. The dots are only used as an approx.guideline.

Nice looking rigs...

WAAGS, get your mind out of the gutter[8D].

Thanks Bowtechshooter, that's what I was thinking (leave it alone)
