In My Vortex (hell of a bow)....

I shoot Gold Tips Lazer II's, brass inserts, 2" Blazer Vanes, and a 100 gr Slick Trick Mag for broadheads. Gives me a gross weight of 405 grns. Using Flemish string I'm getting 320 fps and awesome accuracy as well as terminal performance. Scoped with LumiZone scope, speed ring set at 315, crosshair is my 20, first aimpoint down 30, second is 40, and third gets me 50 yard hit dead on.
Couldn't be happier with my setup.

Holler if some of this needs more explanation.

I

use what Cossack2 uses with the exception of the Slicktrick Mag broadheads. I have been experimenting with both fixed heads and mechanicals out of my Exocet. The 20" Goldtip Laser II with 2 inch blazers and a 100 grain head of your choice seems to be a winning combination with my bow at least (200 lb. Exocet). I have a buddy who's son is shooting 150 lb Excal model with the same arrow setup and is getting similar results. It is a matter of preference but you will find that a heavier Front of Center is a definite plus!
I just took my 1st doe of the season with this combination and a two blade Marden Pro Extreme mechanical head. She didn't go much past 30 yards:)

I don't know about that but

that arrow combination is awesome with the Vortex and the extra arrow weight smoothes the bow out some.
