Compound bows get rated with the IBO FPS (feet per second) standard. Bow manufacturers previously used the AMO scoring system, but over the last decade, all bows have come to be speed rated using the IBO system for consistency.
One of the significant differences between the systems is that an AMO bow may be rated with a lower FPS but be a faster bow, which confused the market.
Conversely, as the newer IBO FPS was higher (due to the way it is calculated) consumers naturally believe wrongly that the bow was faster.
To avoid such confusion, AMO FPS ratings have fallen away, and only IBO FPS ratings now exist.
