I am running 300 grain nibbs in 30" 2712s with 50lbs and 28" draw and they are tearing the heck out of the spots... I am really happy with my setup...

... They are REAL slow. 690 grain total.

1/4" heavy tuner blade is perfect. So far outta the arrows ive fletched up...The heavy offset with 3 3" FF Shield cuts fly the best. The 4 fletch are ok but not as clean and are catching the rest and my face at full draw.

The feathers have a bitm of contact with the riser but no ill effects downrange.

K new update....Setting up 3 inch FF SHIELD cuts to clear the rest with no contact verified with the old fashioned powder test they fly iffy. Setting them up cock fletch at 12 to intentionally contact the rest and the fly and shoot great beating the crap outta the baby 10. The 4 fletch setup is flying just okj but nothing to get excited about. Arrows done up with 5" feather almost straight after a small tweak are flying AWESOME. They are clearing everything. They leave the bow straight and drop in like bombs. The seem to be the most forgiving so far. Tonight ill be making some up with 4" feathers and some more helical and will report back with results.

So far the brite site large tuner blade with no backing plate and setup with no real angle is working flawlessly.

If i had to choose as is i believe the 5" feathers will be riding to Hartford with me. We'll see how the 4's do. I plan to shoot a few games with each over the next 2 weeks and then settle on one.

Again these arrows are 30" long with 300 grains up front. Using the easton Super 3d nock with great resutls thus far.
