    No more than the aluminum arrows that we shot for over 50 years. The only way they are going to bend is if you miss your target. Now that would not be the fault of the arrow. As far as shooting...

    A Carbon Express Heritage 90 would be perfect for your set up. You could start with 175 grains up front and leave the arrows full length. Cut down a bare shafted arrow a quarter inch at a time...

    I like my FMJ arrows with my compound. I think you will also like the heavy, larger bodied broadheads. There is no advantage whatsoever in shooting a 100 grain head. They are thinner, weaker,...

    I went on an anti inflammatory for my shoulder and took about 5 months off from shooting back in 2012 and have not had any trouble since. Took the anti inflammatory for 3 months or so and rested the...

    Maybe port a potty's are the solution. Then we wouldn't have to listen to all this bs. Teachers are going to have all kinds of issues to deal with. Every junior high boy is going to want into...

    For the 50 year old plus guys, one thing we had against us was that the compound bows we shot back in the 70's and early 80's were much harsher drawing than the bows that are being made today and a...

    I agree, going to a xbow is just throwing in the towel and looking for the easy button. I would think that shooting a compound at 45 lbs would be much easier than cocking a crossbow. I think that...

    Exactly, just because you can comfortably shoot 75 lbs doesn't make that decision any less foolish. Today's compounds at 50 lbs are much more efficient than bows of only 10 years ago at 70 lbs. ...

    Well if you re-read my post, no where did I say there are no benefits to higher draw weights. Of course there is higher kinetic energy which will equal better penetration but there are other ways...

    There is really no need to shoot over 50 lbs on today's modern compound. I hunt with 43 on my recurve. I too lift weights and could shoot a 100 pound bow if I wanted. But I cut down to 60 lbs...

    That has nothing to do with bare shaft tuning. All he has to do is rip the fletching off and let it fly. Then he knows where he is spine wise instead of hustling opinions from ATers. He asked a...

    Unfortunately most compound shooters don't understand that an arrow should be tuned to the set up you like to shoot. For example, someone mentioned dropping the weight. Well that is just a band aid...
