Was just seeing what speed people are getting on their bows. I just chrono mine and was getting 420 FPS with a 460 grain total arrow. Does this seem bout rite or does it seem a lil slow?

The Nemesis is using longer strings and cables now. So you will lose a few FPS. That's a given. It helps to reduce center serving wear. I'd rather sacrifice a little speed than have to be changing my string once a week. You still have a speed demon of a bow there with more than enough power to kill anything that might walk in front of it. I wouldn't worry about it. If you want a flatter trajectory use a lighter arrow. Instead of 460gr try a 425gr.

So the specs are changed now?

How much longer are the string/cables? Is this the fix or just a band aid to help witht he wear issue?

So now the bow that was inferred to be 500fps is going to be even slower than 470fps w/400 gr.. ? Strings and cables last forever if you dont shoot it.

I'd like to know what the NEW ATA is on the 480"s,since they have let them out some. Anyone know? Rex did tell me on the phone a while back they went with longer string and cables,but I forgot to ask.....

I would check with Scroypd ( ask
For Jim or Rex). I don’t have the Nemesis yet but plan buy one. The video Jim showed did show 480 FPS..

Yes with a 370gr arrow. That’s equivalent to red lining an engine...keep shooting an arrow that light and bad things will happen.

Should he not be shooting 440 to 445 fps with that arrow weight?
I would think so. I'm averaging 450 fps with 447 gr arrows. It all depends on if he has the longer ATA vs the newer original Nemesis releases.
