Single bevel heads for each bow.

First Doe taken this year was with the Matrix.

How many of y’all follow this same direction when choosing your arrows? “If you want to target practice, you want the arrow to weigh in total (shaft, vanes, insert, nock and field point combined) around 5 to 6 grain per pound of draw weight. So if your bow has 60 lbs. of draw, you want to use arrows that weigh in total between 300 and 360 grain.” I personally like the Carbon Express Maxima Red arrows. When trying to configure my total weight, I can across the source above. Thanks in advance!
