Default RE: Arrow penetration vs. weight

I also believe that carbon is better than aluminum with penetration so imo,that made a difference.

Your target makes a difference as well.

Considering that friction decreases with speed and a foam target uses friction to stop the arrow,that will also make a difference.Resistance will increase with speed but not friction.Sharp points should decrease resistance and allow for the friction to decrease IMO.

Laws of friction states that atvery low velocity the friction is independant of the velocity of rubbing.As the velocity increases,THE FRICTION DECREASES.

Isn't that right Bow hunter44.

I hope this doesn't turn into another 40 pages of arguments.[]
