Default Arrow Selection software

Anyone own any of the arrow software programs? ( I don't even know the names) If you do, would you mind running a "setup" for me? I'm curious to see what it would give me based on what I saw tonite.

Its a 71 pound Binary cam bow- 29" draw. Arrows 28" to nock throat (about 27.5" of shaft). 100 grain points. Let me know if you need any more info.

I will run the number through AA when you post that info.

Thanks Russ! I actually dl'd the trial version of OT2, but in trying to figure out the program I used up my trial uses of 2009 bow models and never was able to see what it reccomended...[:@]

It's a 2009 admiral- 71 pounds. I shortened the draw to 28.5 inches, and I'm looking at 27.5" of shaft (+ nock). ST AXIS inserts weigh 16 grains, nocks are 9, blazer vanes (roughly 17 grains) 100 grain points and a 5 grain wrap on the back.

I'm trying to see if it thinks thinks the 400 size is too weak set up that way.

Est. Speed 285fps

Spine off the chart on the weak side

Standard Axis 400's

Approx 390gr's
FOC 11.5 %
Est Speed 294.

Spine also way off the scale on the weak side.

The optium spine in the Axis FMJ and Axis is the 340.

Thanks Bro! That was what I was figuring- I had some issue with my ICSH 400 the other night when I was shooting-thought they seemed weak.

Well I'm off to the shop in a little while to get some more arrows of approriate spine!

(I'm assuming those speeds it claculates are considering nothing on the string?)

Jeff.

From my testing of arrows the programs says.

The numbers are that close it's not funny maybe a couple of grains with the actual measured weight and a few FPS with the speed.

That was out of my bows set up with loop and a Hooded Ball Peep both with and without the clarifier.

Now if I was you I would go with some extreme FOC around 24% ifn you want a hard hitting great flying arrow that has very little drift in heavy cross winds

All my arrows have the FOC up around the 22 to 24% range and that includes my 3d arrows, altho I do get called a few names on the 3d course when others have to pull my arrows

Not wanting to hijack BUT would you be able to run some figures for me as well?

I am currently shooting 29.5 inch 300 spine Axis FMJ's with 125g heads from my Bowtech 82nd at 70lb and 29 inch draw. It has peep, loop, and peep rubber on the string and served nock sets.
Currently fletched with 4 inch Duravanes but soon to be 2 inch Blazers.

I ran it through the Pinwheel free download and it comes out as weak.

My options are to drop some weight off the front (would prefer not to) or cut them down a little as I can easily lose .5 of an inch and probably more if need be.

Just want to be sure before I start hacking my arrows down.
