I just have a question about the IBO specs on the GT500's BC. My BC says Speed: 336-346 with 400gr arrow at 30"DL and 82.1# peak draw. Does that mean that the IBO is between 336 and 346?

I'm not sure. Mine has a specific speed, 333.

I think I remember Kevin saying they had changed the BC's because if folks didn't get the exact speed listed they were disappointed and complaining??

It means your bow is FAST with a heavier arrow.. :nahnahbooboo::bricks:

Thanks Maybee-R. So is the 336-346fps the GT500's official IBO rating? Sorry for asking this, as I was under the impression that it's fixed @ 346?

Yes, all bows vary as limb deflections and other variables can change speed ratings.

The BC IBO speeds reflect what range your bow with your limbs at your draw should IBO at.

My 60lb GT500 at 29" draw showed 319-329 on the BC.
