    Bowtech Carbon Knight. Speeds checked with a chrono, I was impressed too. It is the fastest bow I've ever had, even when I used to shoot full on hatchet cam bows. Short draw length is challenging to get decent speed, but I'm pleased with this one.
    At 70 lbs. with the 385 grain arrows I was getting 307.

    My Hoyt at 60#/30" with 501gr arrow/head = 250fps (chrono) = 69.5fp of kinetic energy. It delivers a thumping when my shoulder allows me to use it. :sad:

    Those are decent numbers.
    I will say that I have mine set in the 28" draw length slot, but know that I'm a 27.5" draw with a d-loop so just figured it wasn't quite accurate.
