    I'm getting a dozen arrows tommorow and was wondering does it make a significant difference to have the weak side in the same direction? And if so, on a blade, what direction?

    Hi, I have a question about the carbon express medallion 2000. I own a 70" falco spirit longbow that's cut well before center, not quite sure how much ( I'd say 1/16" - 3/16" ). I draw around 33# @ 28" AMO. I was just wondering if this arrow would be weak enough for my bow if left uncut at 29"...

    Hiya, I am considering following arrow configuration: QS3"+AFMJ 31" + fixed (3) blade 100gn. This is going to be shot at abt 300FPS. I am worried that QS1.5" might not be enough to give a proper rotation to the arrow. What's your experience? Brgds
