Schultzydid you notice any more pop in the hits on the targets etc?

I bumped up 150-175 total grains and there is a very noticeable difference in the sound of the impact of the arrows.

I shoot carbons, added 100 gr brass inserts and moved to a 160 gr head

I definitely noticed that! More pack to the punch and also better penetration.

I shot a 789 grain woody out of a 55# bow this past weekend! I tell ya, that arrow SMACKED the target with full force, it was awesome! Honestly, I felt this arrow went downrange faster than a 550 grain arrow out of the same bow!

Bob, they weren't my arrows. I was at a shoot on Saturday and checking out some RER bows, Hartlines from tradgang, his new RER set up, they were tapered laminated Birch! Funny thing is he got these arrows this heavy with just a 125gr tip! When you picked up the arrow to nock it you could just feel the weight you knew they were heavyweights! It was awesome!
