My gf z28 is set at 27.5 in draw at 60 lbs and shooting around a 360 grain arrow. Does 260fps sound right for her setup? only a loop and meta peep on string.

Thanks

Mine is 71lbs shooting a 390grn arrow at 280fps. 260fps at 60lbs is darn good. Thats pretty good KE for sure.

Is it an '09 or '08? I see on AT that you think it is slow? You lose 30fps for the draw, another 20 for the arrow weight and about 6 for the loop and peep. That IBO's at about 316.

Thats around 54.05 KE. Not bad and should harvest most any deer with a fixed broadhead.

My Z shoots a 360 gr. at 276 fps.
It has a peep and loop.

If you would subtract 15 fps for my draw being 1.5" longer, I'd say 260 fps is right there.

Don't forget that a 60lb bow is rated about 5fps slower than a 70lb bow.

That's why I deducted 30 for draw length instead of 25. The bow sounds like it's shooting fine to me.
