Thats funny I looked my arrows up on the Easton site yesterday and with the blazer vanes and Bohning wrap, nock, inserts and a 125 grain broadhead mine came out to about 630 grains. The last time I checked I was shooting somewhere around 250ish fps. That's figures about 90-95 lbs KE.
And I have never had a deer complain about how slow may arrows are or about how my arrows are too much. I also rarely have my arrows stay in a deer (it has happened... twice. but rarely).

I'm good Eddie. I am still going to school. I should finish up next semester. Then hopefully I will be "Retooled" (don't anybody go there)for the 21st century work force!! At least I hope so.

Wow

What's your set up to shoot a heavy arrow like that 250 fps?

I like speed bows not for top end speed but the ability to shoot heavier arrows faster.
