I'm using Carbon One 810 with my 36# limbs and they're right on.
Not to get sidetracked, but are you using glue-in points or screw-in? I looked at Carbon Ones, but Easton doesn't seem to provide a screw-in insert for them.I'm using Carbon One 810 with my 36# limbs and they're right on.
I spend a lot of time at TT reading what experienced archers do in order to set up things to try for myself, so maybe you'll understand this post doesn't indicate I'm a stalker.The heavier arrows make the bow more efficient.
My Hex6HBB2 at my 28.5" DL with 11gpp were shooting 185fps. They really do drive a heavy arrow very well, even if most of the focus is on their ability to shoot light ones VERY quickly.
What nock and fletching are you using? Getting weight off the back end is a great way to get more FOC without gaining weight.
Barebow, no clicker or sight, Spig plunger and arrow rest, Oly 23" riser, Hex 6H long limbs. Distances I'm practicing at are 20-30-50 yards, target only.On the efficiency question....heavier arrows get to keep more of the bows stored energy than light arrows. Heavier arrows will be slower but carry more momentum.
Your arrow design depends on your preferences and shooting style. Sighted or Barebow, known or unknown distances, target only or field points / broad heads, arrow rest or off the shelf, will you be using an olympic style clicker?
I was shooting 11gpp to get a usable POD for a #D where I couldn't stringwalk. When stringwalking I run a much lighter arrow somewhere around 7gpp going 215fps or so.I spend a lot of time at TT reading what experienced archers do in order to set up things to try for myself, so maybe you'll understand this post doesn't indicate I'm a stalker.
I've had the impression from previous posts that you prefer light arrows. I think I remember you once saying that you'd choose even lighter than the 235gr VAPs (not sure about that figure) you were using if possible; plus, you recommended VAPs as a bargain for light arrows.
Here you are talking about heavier arrows being more efficient.
I've also followed a conversation or two between you and Sid about the value of heavier arrows.
I'm about to take delivery of Hex 6H limbs (36#@ my 29.5DL) and I've been trying to decide on some arrow specs. One thing I finally got going for me was putting 110gr points on my .600 VAPs after my Hex 5W limbs refused to tune with the VAPs using any lighter points (I took that from your suggestion for heavier points).
Anyway, I'd would very much appreciate your (and anyone else's) opinion about how to design a single arrow for practicing 20-50 yards using Hex 6H limbs.
