  1. Broadhead Discussion
    Hi all, I'm looking for some advice on my arrow set up and wondering whether it's too heavy or what some better options for me to be to optimise my FOC. Going after Red/Sambar/Fallow Deer and Pigs in NSW, Australia. Current set up is a Mathews V3X 29 #75 85% LO shooting 28.5 inch easton axis...

    I’m looking to get some more foc for my long ass draw length and arrows. My bow specs: 70lbs 31 inch draw Ibo 335 (around 273-280 with 530 gr arrows) Current arrow is a black eagle rampage 250 spine with 175gr up front. I want to switch to black eagle carnivores because they’re cheaper and...
  3. General Archery Discussion
    With all the talk of FOC and different size arrows out there. How many people, that build there own arrows, would purchase titanium inserts for there arrow. Specifically a half out insert. Easton makes one for the Micro diameter arrows but there isn’t much for Sd or regular diameter arrows...
  4. Competition Target Archery
    Hi, Looking to improve the tuning of his compound to increase his scores at 50m. Atm I'm focusing on his arrows. They're Victory VAP Elite 500 spine. For now I'm starting with a point weight of 100gr - have 140-100 gr points ready to test too. I've set them up with a pin bushing and 3 Bohning...
  5. General Archery Discussion
    I know there is a crap ton of discussions re FOC and FE. We all tend to dork out on detailed nuances and dive deep in those rabbit whole - but that is why we enjoy archery. That said, I am stuck in a place as I have been changing up my arrows and about to change again. I am bogged down...
  6. General Archery Discussion
    Just curious if anyone has tested this much. I am changing up my arrow setup for next year planning to up the weight and run a single bevel broadhead. I am shooting a mathews bow that spins the arrow to the left with a bare shaft. I was planning to run left helical 4 fletch. Seems like almost...
  7. General Archery Discussion
    Do you believe high FOC arrows fly and penetrate better? Do you think its a fad and a gimmick that has little to do with arrow performance? I'm curious to see where AT stands on this and why.
  8. Arrows & Strings
    Going to build a set of arrows. DL 25.5" AL 25"-ish DW 60#. I have a dozen bare shaft Element Tornado 350 spine arrows and wanting to do an FOC build, probably building 6 for FOC. I have 100gr points and have 100gr inserts. Been playing around with some online arrow calculators. I know having a...
  9. General Archery Discussion
    Just a quick rant to get it off my chest. Just got back into shooting and needed to update my arrows. Not wanting to spend a ton of money right off the bat I did a bunch of research. Everyone out there seems to push this big name brand or that big name brand. I came across Element and liked the...
  10. General Archery Discussion
    First I’d like to point out these arrows and broadheads are ridiculously expensive. 230$ for 6 arrows and 6 broadheads is quite a bit in my opinion. However… I can say without a doubt if you get the correctly spines arrows you will be hard pressed to find a better system. These things shoot like...

    What manufacturer makes the heaviest inserts/systems?
  14. General Archery Discussion
    So I had a bunch of arrows, some I didn't like that I started to build, some that I was considering buying to build. I wanted a set of arrows for various hunting scenarios. Some very heavy arrows for some dangerous game work, some lighter more versatile longer range arrows, some cheaper gonna...
  15. Arrows, Broadheads, Quivers and Arrow Components
    Get your heavy micro arrow here! I built these for maximum penetration for a friend but he decided to go a different route. Brand new Carbon Express Nano .166 350 spine weight in at 424 grains without fletch, point or nock. Will weigh in right at 571 grains and approx. 18.1% FOC with 125 grain...
  16. Arrows, Broadheads, Quivers and Arrow Components
    13 arrows ready to shoot like new. only shot to nock tune before building. 1 bare shaft used for bare shaft tuning 5 arrows that need a fletch or two Spine: .250 Length: 28 inches from nock throat to insert end Inserts: Ethics Archery 200 grain inserts Vanes: 3 Blazer white cock vanes w/ pink...
  17. Bow Tuning
    For those that work with Higher FOCs: the Ranch Fairy talked about a sweet spot for shooting a 300 spine arrow 28” long at 60# being around 225 grains up front. Anyone have a suggestion of a sweet spot for a bow shooting 70# and a 28” draw? I’ve got both 300 and 350 spine arrows to work with.
  18. Arrows & Strings
    So I'm gonna revamp my entire setup this year. I've been looking around and comparing and I think I'm going to go with either Victory V-Force or Black Eagle Carnivore 250 spines. Either way use Ethics 100gr outserts and then either use a 200gr GrizzlStik Samurai or a 150gr Stinger. Thoughts on...
  19. General Archery Discussion
    I need some new arrows for my bow set up cause my current ones do not have the right spine. Want ones that have a good tolerances. I have heard recommendations for Victory Vap ss and maybe their RIP TKO. Heard that Easton axis is also popular. Current one is gold tip hunter XT but they are...
  20. Arrows & Strings
    BLUF: I'm considering getting rid of a solid accurate arrow set up to gain more yardage by reducing arrow weight and want your opinion and advice. BOW: 75# 31.5 VXR 28.5 DL I am currently shooting 7.9df Easton T64 FMJ w/100gr head, stock insert, stock nock, and zinger 4 fletch 3 degree offset...
