    Spider Venom but so does dish soap and water. Stopped using anything since going to bags stuffed with rags for targets. Easy two-finger pull mostly, but field tips only.

    The 400 will easily handle a 24" arrow. Hard to find but available (Firenocks) and that puts the head out front.

    Firenocks = quality. I especially like their capture nocks, D, J and Q. They actually SNAP onto the string (if it's serving diameter is correct) thereby preventing any arrow migration issues....

    Problem hereabouts is that most Mission dealers are primarily vertical bow dealers. It's why I took the bull by the horns and sent it in myself,. Got EXCEPTIONAL service as a result.

    That difference between 110 and 75 yrs not matter IMO. I'd say try it before you change it.

    Press fit are fine if the bow isn't too powerful. On CN, fellow had press in nocks distort/split the back of his arrow when shot from a 400 fps bow.

    I too have experienced a change in POI after changing the string or serving. The change in weight of the two serving may be making the difference.

    I have a range set up with 5 self-made targets out to 60 yards. Nothing more than skins from Third Hand Archery (or large gunny sacks) filled with discarded clothes.

    Try them on the same arrow. Could be a change in FOC but it can't be that great. Only other thing that comes to mind is if you didn't have the nock oriented just right on the latter.

    Given the short "barrel" that the projectile is housed in I can't imagine much velocity resulting. It's a gimmick aimed at the nuts that like to hear noise and fire, much like the exploding targets...

    Fiberglass bolts are likely too heavy for a 160, suggest either graphite arrows or aluminum. My personal preference is graphite, they don't bend (and stay that way) like aluminum can.

    Look for sharp edges or misalignment at the junction between the trigger box and the rail (barrel). Also check for burrs at the front of the rail, although that would likely really affect accuracy.

    Not to worry, Clint. We didn't have iPods and cell phones so we created our own fun. Sometimes I wonder how I survived all of it.
