4 Dozen!! You must be Hard on arrows!

The info on arrows is just my opinion, and I respect yours. Just don't agree!

AM 32 - 27"/65# 26.5" (shaft length) Beman MFX Team Realtree 400 with 100 grain tips and 2" blazer vanes. Total arrow weight = 401 grains. G5 Expert II rest. Paper tuned, walk back tuned, broadhead tuned (no adjustments needed) and everything checks out.

I still have about 3 dozen that are in shooting condition, just different set-ups hunting vs. target arrows, 7 of them got the RH treatment, and 3 of those were just trying to set up new sights. The arrows I referenced are .003 straightness rated, and are actually quite consistent. Likewise I respect you opinion and appreciate the help, guidance, and products I've gotten from you, but these are seriously GOOD arrows for the LOW price that they sell for.

I converted from the easton FMJ to the Beman MFX team realtree.

I love them.

For the record,I ran your setup through Archers Advantage and for great broadhead flight,the arrows I recommended are perfect for your setup.

I appreciate your time and dedication..all of you guys..thanks...

Now ..another question for interpretation...I always get this mixed up.

You have raw arrow length and then you have REAL arrow length..

Raw = no nock? Real equals with nock? Right?

I'm going to be shooting the luma nocks (added weight)...I'm all scrambled now..I need to go back and re-read the posts...

I'm a traditional guy..I've never had a problem over the years with compounds....but I've always just added a half inch to my arrow....27.5 inch draw...28 inch arrow..I'm a mess...I need to learn more..from the reads..it looks like you guys are saying to go with a 27.5 inch arrow as well...I need to get out a tape measure and draw my bow in the man cave...I need to look at some things...stay with me...

I really want to learn the percision of all of this....I have killed many....no doubt...I just really want to learn more on this topic of balance and precision.

I measured my arrows last night and the shaft length (no nock, no tip) is 26" not 26.5.

If you're going to be shooting Luma-Nocks, I think that makes it even more of an argument for 125 vs. 100gr tip, to keep your FOC up. And I. likewise, add a little to my arrow rather than shorten it. I believe you get a little better flight with a little longer arrow, but can't prove it other than my experience seems to trend that way. Extreme example crossbow bolt vs. 30" compound bow arrow makes it pretty obvious, but I don't think you could prove a whole lot varying 1.5" on a 26-28" arrow.

I hear what you are saying Doug, and my belief is that the culprit is usually lack of FOC in the short arrow flight. I could be wrong as I haven't run that through any testing.
