    Curiosity question.

    I tend to maintain all of my equipment at a reasonable level, and as I have multiple bows, I tend to put less mileage on any one bow than a one bow user. I also order my...

    Tip weight/broadhead weight is really independent of shaft weight for the most part. Tip weight affects the dynamic spine of the shaft, how much stress the shaft needs to accommodate when you let it...

    Slick Tricks are now available in 4 paks, and Muzzy heads have long been in 6 paks, (and cost the same as most 3 paks). I've lost a couple Slicks in the leaves, but unless you spear a rock dead...

    Next time you snag a tick, put it in a bottle of pool water, and see how long it takes to drown it. Same for the washing machine.

    I guess there are a couple 60lb bows of recent manufacture that might be a problem with "KE" and penetration, most have more zoom than 70lb bows of ten years back. My 50lb Alphaburner has more KE...

    Actually, I think that depends on the bow.

    My 60lb Vector and 60lb Spyder 30 are as fast arrow for arrow as my 70lb Vtec or Vipertec of just a few years back, and way easier to draw. They are...

    I've used Rockets since they were introduced a couple decades back. I'm guessing about 30-40 deer with 100/125gr Steelheads, and 75gr Wolverines. I've also used NAP Spitfires in 85/100/125gr to...

    Penetration is an interesting issue.

    Having made the transition from about 160fps to 320fps over the past fifty years, I find that much past 280fps there's not a lot of gain taking shots at game. Starting at about 260fps, few deer are...

    I suspect you are not alone.

    What the Turbo designs bring to the game, for me, is more KE with less peak weight. At 60lbs, I can and do get 280fps from a 450gr arrow, almost 80 ft/lbs of KE, with...

    I can shoot a 29"/400 spine from my 330 IBO Vector 32 an/or Spyder 30, but to do it I needed to drop back to an 85gr tip. From my 60lb 340 IBO Spyder Turbo, not a chance. I use a 350 spine from...

    I have a Spyder Turbo at 60lb/29" DL, and it zips a 450gr shaft at 280fps. I have no doubt a 60lb Nitrium Turbo would be 10fps faster. It has more poke at 60lbs than all but one of my 70lb bows in...

    FOC has nothing to do with shaft weight or spine if you are using a shaft of uniform internal dimensions. It's like a lever, and levers work off length. You get the same lever effect from an...
