My bow is too fast!!! I need to slow my pro-elite down some but i like the poundage I am shooting...would you guys add tip weight or go ahead and lower poundage....Im shooting 28 inch GT 22 Pros with 80 gr tips and 1.8 duravanes now...bow is at 61 pounds and they are still at 290... I need it to be in the mid 280 range...
Get OnTarget2! and experiment with a half sheet arrow wrap (5 grains)
and 90 grain tip.
You can get 10 grain GoldTip screw in weights.
All GoldTip glue in target point
are internally threaded to accept the add on screw in weighs.
This will be a pain the in the posterior,
but you will need to experiment with different lengths of arrow wrap.
Say a 4-inch wide sheet of arrow wrap is 5 grains
and a 5-inch wide sheet of arrow wrap is 7 grains
and a 5.5-inch wide sheet of arrow wrap is 8 grains.
I would fletch up three arrows with the 4-inch wide sheet arrow wrap
and the vanes you are using and the 90-grain glue in tip.
Just remove the nock, get the extra long hex wrench, and the 10 grain screw in weights...use blue loctite.
Then, fletch up three arrows with the 5-inch wide sheet.
Then fletch up three arrows with with 5.5-inch wide sheet.
You get the idea.
Three widths of arrow wrap,
will give you three different arrow weights on the rear end,
and consequently three different dynamic spines.
chrono all three for arrow speed.
Then, group tune to figure out which of the three setups
will give you the best groups.
You may even need to go to 100 grains of tip weight.
