    Hello all, Just getting into archery. That is just getting back into archery after a ruptured biceps and shredded shoulder tendons. I no longer have the strength, or desire to continue to hunt with my aging Hoyt Cybertec. I’ve taken deer with it, from 7-53 yards but have always been intrigued...

    Guys I use to play around with the KE charts when I shot compound bow. There was a sweet spot on that chart where speed and arrow weight would come together and make the most KE right before it would Plato. So, have any of you guys figured out that arrow weight sweet spot with some of your...

    Hi all, I shoot 60# and draw 32”. I shoot an old Matthew’s conquest, which I mostly love. But I get pretty substantial drop from 20-30 yards (30 is my max shot hunting). I’d like to tighten it up and am considering lightening my arrows. My arrows weight about 500 grains. 300 spine Berman...

    I need some help. I was previously shooting a Mathews solocam Z3 with a Trophy Ridge Peak v5. I liked the idea of individual pin adjustment vs all moving together with the react technology, but I digress. I had plenty of elevation micro adjustment shooting around 270fps @ 27.5"/ 70#. Due to a...

    I’ve recently gone down the rabbit hole of FOC and more premium arrows after being tired of lackluster penetration in block targets and white tails. I shoot a Mathews Vertix with a 29.5 DL at 65# and cheap Gold Tip HunterXT 300 arrows with 100gr Rage Trypans. FOC is about 10.25% and I’m looking...

    I usually use 425 grain (total) on my scorpyd crossbow, but that goes 460fps so I don't think that will apply with my bare-bow (duh). I prefer to use my 100gr 1 1/2" blade diameter NAP spitfire mechanicals (with 25gr collars) as I've never once had issues with penetration or blade deployment...

    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...

    I have an old Mathews that's very slow, 308ibo, and I have it with a 50#draw and a 27" draw length, what weight arrows should I shoot out of it for deer?
  10. General Archery Discussion
    Okay, I'm trying to figure out how to achieve my desired arrow weight for hunting, everyone says you want to be above the 5gr per lb at an absolute minimum so when I started looking for arrows I started at 6gb per lb @ my 65lb draw weight giving me a desired minimum of 390gr but every time I use...

    I've been a member for awhile but have not posted much. I have been blessed with the gobs of info available here in older posts, however, so let me take this opportunity to thank you all. It's been super helpful! I'm relatively new to bowhunting (2nd season) but am having a blast with it. I've...

    Tim Wells proves both arrow speed and broadhead cutting diameter are over-rated by killing a ram with a BLOW DART!. And I guess you could say the same about arrow weight as well. The well placed shot is numero uno! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuusKJa3Zzo

    I am considering buying one of the faster bows (around and IBO of 350). If I get a 60# bow and a 29.5" DL, what weight arrow would you suggest? I have some that weigh 460g. Would they be too heavy? thanks

    Hey guys, I've no problem using carbon Victory VForce 500 3050, with 125 gr points, with my recurves, which are 30# and 35#. My DL is about 27 1/2". I bought a [I]longbow[I], 57" 37#@28" and attempted to use the same arrows, but they reacted as if they were stiff. It was necessary to increase...

    I currently shoot Black Eagle Rampages 300/.001 (total weight 405 grains) and wanting to shoot Black Eagle Carnivores 300/.001 (est.total weight 395 grains). The GPI difference is just .2 with the Rampages being 8.7 and the Carnivores being 8.5 GPI. FOC of the Rampages is 10.91% Kinetic...

    Hey folks. Trying to figure out what the best arrow weight is for my GF to shoot while hunting, and how to get to that desired weight. I'll try to keep it simple. She shoots a 45lb bow at only 23.5" draw. The IBO on the bow is supposedly around 340fps. We mainly hunt wild pigs so penetration is...

    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...

    Hello, I am interested in getting opinions about arrow weight. I currently have a Hoyt Vulcan, 29" dl, 60 lb DW. I want to set the bow up for 3D as it's primary focus with hunting a possibility. I like to have more general equipment that can fulfill both roles. My question is about should I...
