I think that's what I said.

It must have been the downward angle I was shooting off my deck to make my chrono read incorrectly. I was able to get a flatter arrow flight across it today and 7 arrows averaged 280fps at 3 yards. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't your arrow still gaining speed when your string hits your stop?  I'm shooting a Hoyt Charger, Easton FMJ arrows with 3" helical vanes with 100gr tips, I have a 31" draw.

As far as i understand, the string is the only thing that accelerates your arrow. Everything elseslows it down. I beleive even a helical curve has drag therefore slowing it down. The positive of a helical is a stabilized arrow flight just like a bullet.
