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

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.
