KS hunter, speed should not be on the top of your list for hunting performance. you may get high speed by shooting a light arrow, but with that you sacrifice penetration. i shoot a nice heavy Aluminum arrow that is still going 268 FPS that has enough energy behind it to punch through shoulders if necessary. a light fast arrow will not have enough KE to do that.

my setup is a Hoyt Razortec, 28.5" XX78 2315 arrows with a 100 grain Muzzy @268 FPS

I shoot 273 fps out of my 05' Switchback. My total arrow wt is 393 gr., draw wt is 70# and draw lenght is 29". I have a peep with string loop and 1 knock point. The set-up gives me 65 ft/lbs kinetic energy.

I shoot a PSE Excursion 28.5" draw length at 64#.  The arrow is Carbon Express HE350 with 100 grns head  at 470grns total weight  and will fly 233fps.  I hope to go lighter probably around 400 grns for the season.

if you want more fps only two ways to get it higher poundage and lower let off.

i have to disagree, to a point, with phoenix. energy is top but speed is a good key to that energy.
i shoot hoyt trykon xl 70lbs 28" draw 75% let off, 26" beman ics 340 with 100grain muzzy 4 blade or grimreaper 100grain and with that set up i got 310 fps.
at 70 yards i have 12 to 18 inch penetration on my block 4x4.
even went threw both shoulder blades on a doe at 57 yards and out the other side.
NEVER GOING TO CHANGE MY SET UP!!!
thwack is the only sound i want to hear from sept to feb!!!

hoody, your probably setup with a 5 grain per pound arrow am i right? your total arrow weight is around 350 grains that translates into IBO Minumum arrow weight of 5 grains per pound. i have to disagree with you on the fact of you going through both shoulders at 57 yards with setup you have described. i might agree on a possible pass through without going through bone, but after years of extensive tests conducted at the archery shops i've worked at i have yet to see a setup punch through even one shoulder at that distance. tests were done at ranges from 5 feet out to 60 yards on controlled setups with arrows weighing in from 4 grains per pound(not recommended) to heavy fiberglass fishing arrows weighing in at 12 grains per inch. for best penetration we found that an arrow weighing in at 6.5 to 7 grains per inch provided the best penetration over the widest range of tests with a wide varity of broadheads.

edit, fishing arrows were supposed to be 12 grains per pound, not per inch, my fingers were moving faster than i could think

I don't have good enough form to shoot any faster,I can shoot fairly well.I can put 4 out of 5 arrows in the boiler room almost every time.
If some people want speed,that's fine,it's all in what you prefer.
