Anyone have a crono in the Maury Co area I can shoot a couple of arrows through?
Want to see the diff in 50#-60# on my bow.
Thanks

Assuming you shoot the same arrow you'll lose about 20fps.

Too many variables to answer your specific situation, but my hunting bow is set now such that from 20 to 30yds my arrow drops 5.21". If I decrease the draw weight by 10# the drop from 20 to 30yds becomes 6.28". Those calculations are per an archery software program. I don't shoot well enough to measure that little bit of change.

That's a speed loss of 18fps and it results in 1.08" drop within a normal effective whitetail hunting range. That's why I don't worry much about speed for my hunting bow. If you're better at a lower poundage you need to shoot there.... my .02 anyway.

I don't shoot well enough to know the difference either. That is why I was asking.
Not between 55 and 60# on my bow.

I dropped down just below 60# for most of my hunting seson,and did fine.
IMO faster arrow speed is overrated. At least for the hunting I do with shots at deer no farher than 35 yds.
I pratice out to this dietance,and set this as my max.
