    There are two opposing theories about arrow hunting weight. Mine, that a bow has the same amount of stored energy, no matter what arrow you are shooting, so weight should make little difference. And what most hunters seem to think, and a few articles back up, that the heavier the arrow, the...

    Range: 18 meters I am greatly impressed by my Ming Moon 5 . . . . it likes arrows with a total weight of 347 grains. It is a Prima Ballerina of minimalist bows ! �� John

    What does grains per pound of draw weight mean? How can you figure? My bow suggests a minimum of 9-10 grains per pound of draw weight (at my draw length). If I shoot say a 35# bow at a 26 draw length with 600 spined arrows how many grains per pound am I drawing? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This one is for you super tuners out there. How much change have you noticed when adding or subtracting 10 grains of point weight to an arrow. Can you even notice a change? I am referring to going from say a 100 gr. to a 90 gr. when bare shaft tuning and fletched arrow flight. I notice quite...

    Helloooo everyone! Couldn't find an answer anywhere, so here I go. I just bought 50 bamboo shafts before asking about the shafts' weight. Well, their weight is around 460 grains at 33 inches. My field points options are 100 or 125 and I believe I should stick with the latter, for some extra...

    I'm looking seriously at a faster arrow setup for a 3D tournament tomorrow. I'm shooting a set of Medium W&W CC Carbons on a DAS Hoyt TD3 and I've searched everywhere for their info. Anyone have advice or a link? I tried a few 350 grain arrows this evening with limbs set at 47#, equates to...

    Ok I got the tillering done on the bow. My nest question is I have bow at 35lbs draw. What is the minimum grains per pound for the bow having 35 lb draw? Is it 6,7,8?

    I got a 64" Don Dow Hybrid Longbow earlier this year (great bow for the price) and replaced the thick,dacron string with a 12 strand padded loop D97 string. The bow is 56#@ my 31" draw. After tuning I found that it shoots a 32" 250 Terminator Lite Hunter with 145 grain points (495 grains)...

    Working on my spectra riser home made warf, tweeking out a little more speed. I put some eliminator buttons on both ends of the string (3 each end) and grabbed a few lighter arrows to test. The bow is set 45# @28 315 grain arrow 194 fps 340 grain arrow 185 fps Is that pretty close to what some...

    thats norwegian for black magic... Took a break from my Nilo and all the practice for barebow and played with my DAS this evening.. my STS arrived from bowjax today, so I fitted that and was very pleased with how quiet the bow is... Been wanting to try out and STS since about a year ago, but...

    Everyone who has used 450 grains or less for bowhunting with their stickbow... time to speeak up. The usual suspects are on their ususal sounding board insisting as usual that "light" arrows are bad for hunting because they don't have "penetration". If you've used less than 450 grains, let's...

    Is there a generally accepted number for how many FPS you loose/gain for a certain amount of grains (say 25 grains)? I realize it is precisely dependant on the energy of the bow, but I'm just looking for a general answer for bows between 50 - 60lbs @ 28". Also, what would be a general amount...

    is 550 grains going 192-5 fps enough for elk on rib hits with Delta 4blade heads and Razorcaps 3blades, or should I go with a heavier arrow? I was thinking of lowering my arrow weight with an Axis and upping my trajectory.

    Has anyone figured out the relationship between gains in FPS versus reduction in arrow weight with olympic limbs. For example: picking up 3 FPS per 10 grains reduction in arrow weight. I know that it will be different for each person based on draw length and poundage of bows. Just wondering...

    I was playing with the Chrony today and strung up all the old recurves. Tamerlane, Kodiak Hunter, Grizzly, Pearson Rouge, Shakespear X-18. The Grizzly and Kodiak Hunter were around 170fps with 10.5grs/lb. I risked a few shots each with a 7.3grs/lb carbon and got 191fps average (both #55lb...
