    Front of center calculator?

    Gold Tip use to offer a F.O.C. calculator that would automatically tell you F.O.C. when you would input arrow weight, fletching weight, insert weight ect, ect . They don't offer it anymore. Does anyone know where I can find a calculator like this on the web? It always worked great for knowing which components to use in order to get your front of center where you wanted it. Thanks AL

    I need an foc calculator where I can input the data, and get an answer. Most calculators out there require you to ALREADY HAVE the broadheads and arrows in question (for length and balance point) to complete calculations. I would like to make calculations BEFORE buying and experimenting with broadheads and arrows.

    A perfect example of a calculator that requires you to already have the broadheads and arrows in question.

    SSX and SFA do FOC calculations based on the shaft and conponents you select. 5 or 10 day trials, respectively.
