Thread: Is this speed right?

    Default Is this speed right?

    Hi,
    I am wondering if the speed I am getting is right or is the chronograph off. Here is my set up

    2012 Elite Answer (smooth mods IBO 327-330), 60 draw weight, 27.5 draw lenght, 391 total arrow weight, and 15ish on string.

    Went I went to my local archery shop and shot three arrows through the chronograph I was getting an average speed of 240 fps.

    Is that correct???

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Any ideas on why I am shooting about 30 fps slow? Any info or insight would be great.

    That was one of the first things I had the archery shop do. It's set at 60.

    Is it tuned? Did they check cam orientation and sync?

    Check it with another chrono.
    That's way way slow.
