RE: Arrow Weight for deer Hunting
I prefer aluminum because I can build them for cheap and my recipe is very accuratte to 40 yards. I forget, but I think I'm around 470ish?

I am building 2216 shafts with blazers, AL inserts in both ends and 150gr ABC Bolt Sonic broadheads.

I voted 'light carbon' because I can make them heavier to suit my taste.

light carbon.... add weight to increase FOC

Weight is good, but FOC is the key that makes the bolt. You can have a 350-380grain light bolt that outflies a 430grain bolt because of its FOC:)

I always hear theheavier bolts are quiet so thats why I like them. If someone buys a xbow to make it quiet then they are in the wrong market LOL[:'(] I have yet to hear a heavy arrow make a xbow quiet enough that it wont spook deer within 200 yards LOL
