I had an amateur moment in carefully calculating the gr/pound with arrow type, length, points etc so I exceed the minimums Sid recommended for my Hex 6's. I ordered my Easton X7 and popped them on the digital scale and they were 28 grams. Panic, far below 6.5/pound.

More research and I now see that "gr" is grain and 28.1 grams converts to 432 grains. Great weight for the bow.

Am I the first to do this?

All units are mixed up with me.

Distance in km and meters unless bow/arrow measurements which are in inches.Bow weight in lbs. Speed in fps unless vehicles which are km/h.

Fish in lbs and inches, body weight in kg, height in feet, animals in kg, horns in inches.

Tools all metric.

Temperature in Celsius.

Volume in liters.

Arrow and bullet weight in gr. (the norm).

Currency in clams!

This results in a lot of conversions.

We had a real interesting thread on the metric system awhile back. I am an avid metric proponent. I was definitely in the minority. That being said, as long as we continue to use these kooky hybrid units, which include both Imperial and archaic, problems like yours will occur.
