Default Re: Arrow Speed

There have been mountains of game taken and trophies won with tackle shooting in the 160 -170 fps range. It happens to produce the trajectories and sight pictures that best suit my eye. So I tune to suit my eye. I never much cared for arithmetic anyway.

If I use a faster set up I tend to hit high at the longer distances. When that happens I add arrow weight to slow them down. Or detune the bow a bit. Whatever it takes to hit where you look. - lbg

... 190/8.9 = 21.34

We now have two numbers, 20 and 21.34, which is the better performing bow
I dont think GPP is considered because it addresses some sort of performance. I think its just done as way to normalize differences in bow draw weight when comparing velocities. Trying to compare with the 2 variables at once sort of seems to defeat the purpose of the convention. largely because efficiency always improves with heavier gpp on any given bow.

I usually shoot 600 to 650 gr arrows out of modern glass bows in the mid to upper 50's at long draw mainly for bowhunting purpose and practice. I get an arrow speed in the 180 fps range give or take a few fps. My chrono doesn't give nice digits easily though.
Indeed that arrow weight @speed works with a good margin on game from African Eland to rabbit.

It's a cool thing to have. I am a tinkerer. What I am more curious to know is how much speed that arrow is losing at 15, 20, 25....yards. Playing around with that now.

With all due respect to Joe P. and and everyone else shooting 10 gpp at or over 200 fps,
I hope to see it in person before I die.
If I won the lottery I would buy the best chronos known to man and make house calls.

This of course is based in my limited exposure to archery.

Chrony's are pretty good for form practice. Come up with the same reading each shot and you know your misses are aiming misses.

165 from a fast longbow, 42# @29", 500 grain arrow which is about 12 grains per pound. Lighter would be faster but then I would have to hold too low at the middle distances., so I prefer a heavy arrow to suit my eye. - lbg

How are you drawing a 26" arrow 31 inches?

That s really funny. 201 fps @13 gpp is already a joke and quite hard with an arrow that is more than 2 inches too short to lay on the shelf/rest at full draw.
