No way...
Read the gpp low and corresponding speed on left on the blue line.
This is the work or the French trad bow hunting association (ATO) on the tuktuEX TD , hooter shooter, 2 chrono in line and artificial light mounted on chrono. 28" draw length AMO ( 26.25" from string to pivot point) 7.25" DL

 -

On this one you can see where this bow is really outstanding : the blue dotted line is the effort line: from 14.5" draw length to close to 31" the bow is getting less than 2.6# per inch of draw on a very constant way for a 51#@28" bow ( the light blue horizontal line is the 2,6# per inch of draw mark line)
From 30 to 31" of draw, the bow poundage increase is just 2,8# and it is just a wood and glass 60" AMO bow !

Take a look at Pete Ward's website...Pete has been chronographing bows for a long time and he uses a three under dead release confirmed by his wife, Pat...Pete had been doing it for years to achieve the consistent results he does with great attention to detail...Pete has a history of testing Abe's bows and I wonder if he might not have another of the Tuktu EX in the future

I believe Blackie Schwarz often tests bows with both mechanical and finger release and gets consistently higher velocities with the mechanical version...the only meaningful numbers for personal use are those we shoot with our typical release...I have about a 30 inch draw which often raises my numbers somes...I once shot one of my 1960 Kodiaks over my Chrony getting three identical readings of 185 fps in the morning...I shot the same bow for three shots in the afternoon getting three identical readings of 180 fps indicating that I was drawing the bow consistently shorter for some reason, or maybe just using a deader release...for checking my consistency I like Technohunt which registers the velocity of each shot...when I am getting good releases I vary about 5 fps over 40 shots...when I am a bit sloppy I can easily vary 10...a chronograph is only one indicator of bow performance...btw if you want to see and interesting force draw curve take a look at Pete Ward's recent results with the Border Covert Hunter...truly amazing

I don't own a chronograph, simply because I'm not focused to any extent on speed data. I've been around them enough to see/know that a bad fingers release can cost 8-10 fps. The only true way to know the bow's capability is via shooting machine removing all human variables.

fwiw: Many years ago we used to do nothing except practice our release some days. It made a difference in accuracy...we didn't spend any time measuring speed.

I like using a chronograph because helps me work on getting a more consistent anchor and release buy the arrow speeds. I know speed doesn't kill as much as consistency and accuracy does.

Just for grins I shoot my EX through 2 different chrono's [pro chrono and a F1].Bow is a 60" 56@28 and I draw 28.5, arrow was 576gr axis.
3 shots through each chrono all were within 181-183fps and this is with a loaded string [silencers/tie-on nocks] hunt ready and with fingers. Brace height is 7.00 on the nose.
Ur finding at 27 should be correct as per your first post.
