actually the 350 fps with a 350 gr arrow is a hunting set-up. is it loud i guess so to a deer. of course any deer but a deaf one can hear any CB arrow being shot. so its basically what you like personally. a good set-up is one that shoots accurately for you. i shoot both alum. & carbon arrows & all my hunting weight arrows start at 435 gr & heavier. its not about the noise for me as its about better harmonics on CB and the limbs. less shock & vibration.
