Wrong, I belive they make them in Michigan. I have the Tomcat-II which is about 12-years old and still shoots like the day I bought it. I was just curious if anybody out there shoots one of these, they use to be the fastest "fps" around 350 or so, or so I thought?

Not 350fps, todays bows don't even reach that speed. I would be surprised if they shot 250fps...

Perch- just so you know.. it is possible to shoot 350 fps with today bows.. its not easy, but it can be done.. I shoot a hoyt ultra tec, 31.5 in draw, at 57 lbs and am at 307fps last time I checked.. At a proshop once... I saw a guy with one of them he-man bowtec bows set at 85 lbs, and was shooting way to light an arrow and he had it go over 400 fps if I remember right.

Deitz,

I can shoot over 350 if I am shooting a tooth pick. But never in a "Hunting Set up".

I would say my string goes 350 fps if it was ever dry firing... I have bow hunted for quite a few years and I agree it is getting real fast but "PERSONALLY" I have never seen anyone shot in a hunting situation 350fps. If I am wrong but I need to see the crono to be corrected... In my own opinion when they give the IBO they are pretty much dry firing the bow. From my experiences you can usually subtract any where from 10-20fps from the speced IBO. shocked.gif

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
