some speed references for the Shakespeare bows. The 52" Sierra is still one of my all time favorites...... I need to get another one.

*note, the same arrow was used for each. Poundage and model varied.

My brother-in-law has a Wonder Bow and it shoots great.

the only one I have ever owned I did not like was the 50"? cascade. It just didn't feel right with them wide limbs.

My first trad bow, other than when I was a kid, is a 60" Wonderbow Tioga X-21. It's a 40# bow and still shoots great!
