  1. Reasonable Performance Expectations

    Arrows & Strings
    Hello, Ive Bareshaft tuned these to my bow, a Prime alloy IBO rated 310. I've maxed out the bows weight and can shoot it confortably my goal is to try and achieve atleast 70 ftlb for Moose but i cant seem to find a combo that will do that. I dont want to go under 400 grains,but I also would like...
  2. Arrow Ballistic Calculation - No software, no chrono, no shooting solution

    General Archery Discussion
    I am working on a school project and I wanted to build an excel momentum and KE calculator. I cant use a software system, chronograph, or method to shoot a bow at 20 and 40 yards. I need to be able calculate arrow speed in terms of IBO in Ft/s knowing things like arrow length, weight, draw...
  3. Easton Bow Mapping System

    Archery Tools
    Older (pre 2008) Easton Bow Mapping System. Comes with everything in photo. I verified the main unit and handheld unit turn on although the contacts on the handheld can be a little touchy at times. System is a little outdated and may not be supported by the manufacturer anymore. If nothing else...

    General Archery Discussion
    The specs on my Mathews Jewel bow says IBO is up to 325 FPS with #60 bow @ 29 inches. My Jewel is set to approx. #56 and my draw is 26 inches. Is there a way to calculate approx. IBO with these details without a chrono? Also, the specs on my APA Sidewinder says the IBO is up to 318, but I can’t...

  6. Arrow question

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Hello all, i have hunted with a bow for several years but only for whitetail and never attempted a shot over 35 yards. I practice regularly at longer distances but just haven't shot at live target that far. I am planning on an elk trip in 2018 in wyoming and would love some advice on arrow...
  7. what arrow weight will give me the most kinetic energy?

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    This may be a dumb question but i am a noob so i will go ahead and ask. I saw a graphic for my bow (Elite Anwer) which showed velocity and kinetic energy for 2 different arrow weights. I would think that the energy would be the same as it is the bow that imparts the energy to the arrow and not...
  8. Where are my Bowtech folks at?

    General Archery Discussion
    I've got the Bowtech Carbon Knight. I'm drawing 30.5" at 70 lbs. My arrows weigh in at 8.7 GPI, 100 gn tip. I do not have access to a chrono. Does anyone have a ballpark of about how fast my bow is shooting from experience with their own? The IBO is 330, so I was thinking somewhere in the low...

    Mathews Archery Discussion
    I've been shooting my new Creed with a 29.5" draw and the DW set at about 61 lbs. The chronometer shows my arrow speed right at 260 ft/s right off the bow. I've been shooting great groups at 20 and 30 yards, and when I shot 3D last weekend I was pleased with the results. I'm using Axis 340...
  11. I want a flat shooting arrow?

    Arrows & Strings
    What I got is a Mathews Dernalin I am shooting 63 pounds. I have a 7.3 Gpi arrow @ 28 inches long. (spine 500) 63 x 5 = 315 grains 7.3 x 28= 208 grains + 100 grain point= 308 + 20 grains on insert and blazer vanes= total arrow weight "328 grains" Will that arrow be a good flat shooting target...
  12. Arrow speed vs. weight?

    General Archery Discussion
    Trying to choose the right arrows for my new Elite Hunter (50#, eventually probably 55 or 60 [shoulder and elbow injury), 29" DL). Plan to mostly use for hunting, though will do *lots* of target practice. Determined my arrow length should be about 28", spline somewhere in the .340-.380 range...
