performance upgrade Vixen II (Pink)

Post by vpsaline » Wed Mar 15, 2017 7:07 pm

How much performance (fps) can someone squeeze out of a Vixen II with simple mods? Is it similar to the 'Cub' where it can achieve full 305fps with just string change?

It is best to buy a faster bow because trying to make your Vixen faster with simple mods is not cost effective, it is going to cost $$$ to make it noticibly faster.

I bought anthonys ibex with thoughts of using the alluminum rail for my vixen 2 ....when i saw what a great bow the ibex was i left it alone. Now that i killed three deer and a turkey endless skunks and possoms with the vixen 2 i realized it dosnt need to be faster its just as fast as a good compound bow. Its also gonna be my turkey bow this spring even though i have much faster bows l love that whimpy bow.
