What are some of the setups you guys run.

I don't know the exact weight of my arrows off the top of my head, but I shoot gold tip hunter xt's with 100gr heads (QAD exodus when hunting) out of a bowtech assassin, 73# DW at 27" DL and am breaking a little under 310 FPS if I remember correctly last time shot thru a chrono. It's hard to have screaming speed when you have as short of a DL as me...

Bowtech Assassin here as well. 28" draw shooting Easton Axis FMJ's @ 307 FPS. I lost some speed when I went with the heavier arrow and larger string dampers, but I think the energy from the FMJ's will make up for it and more.
