Default uping it 50 grans

I'm shooting a bow set at 65 lb... 30 inch draw... and I'm shooting 2314's and 100 gr. heads.. Would it in any way damage my bow if I were to start shooting 125 gr. heads ?

Because right now the only listing I can fiend for my set up with the 2314's calls for 75 gr. heads.

Would the 50 gr. increase in head weight hurt or damage my bow ?

I don't think you'll damage your bow but you will be underspined shooting the 125's. What's the length of your arrows? If you shoot 29" arrows I would go with 2413's or 2315's or if you wanted to go to carbons why not Axis 340's or Gold Tip 7595's.

I read somewhere that the single most important factor in tuning a bow is to insure that your spine is correct. Everything else is secondary to that. Just something to think about before you change heads.
