First off this is my first thread... I've been lurking on here for quite some time and greatly appreciate all the info this forum has to offer. I need some input from people who have the TAP program. I downloaded the OT2 trail and I'm finding the spine chart is different compared to the TAP program.
I've narrowed it down to the Gold Tip Big Game 100's with either a 0.280 or 0.250 spine at around 27-29" length.
I have a 28.5 DL 80# limb MR6. I want to shoot it at around 72-74#'s. I want a decently high FOC, somewhere around 15% or higher I want to use the 11.4 gr insert and the 8.3 gr light noc GT has. I'm using FOB's so that's 24 gr and I'm not using any wraps. I'm going to get a two blade broad head that's around 150-200 gr.
I want to keep this set-up as light and fast as possible. I'd like to see the total weight around 500 grains. I'm going to buy another set-up for my BIG game (grizzlies...) animals that's around 700+ gr. I just want this arrow to confidently take down everything from black bear to moose.
With the OT2 program I've inputed a 175gr point with a 11.4gr insert at 28" length at 72 #'s with a 24gr FOB with a nock that's 8.3gr and it came out to 0.2799 optimal spine. (run on...) I tried to make my own arrow on the TAP program and input all the #'s and it said my spine was VERY weak with this set-up. I couldn't get my bow in there so I had to type all the values in for my bow AND my arrow...
If the guys with the TAP program could input my #'s I'd GREATLY appreciate it!! I downloaded the free trial but it only goes up to 2006 or something. Horrible trial version...
Thanks for your help!!
