Default I have a winner

I finally made a dozen arrows for shooting with my 55# limbs. This is going to work great! My Hunter shoots 1916 arrows, 458gr. at 172 fps. The same bow with the 55# limbs shooting 556 gr. arrrows is producing 172fps. Both are a 5 arrow average. The way I have it figured, I can shoot the 45# limbs for 3-D and switch to the 55# limbs for hunting and have the same trajectory for both. No re-learning for hunting season. I like it! The cast should be the same. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> Dick

Well actually DicK, they could be very different. Even though they start out at the same speed, the light arrow is going to lose that speed a little quicker. So as the distance increases, the difference does also. Sorry Dick<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

That's very true in theory Tox (dang you're a sharp kid) but at hunting distances the differences should be very minimal at most. Sounds like a good plan to me, but would be cool to see how it works out...Dick, a few experiments maybe??

Only one way to know for sure, and that's to shoot it. Dang...another reason to shoot!

My hunting shots are 15-20 yards. No problem there but I WILL EXPERIMENT and report results. Dick

Dick,

Yes, the lighter arrows will lose speed a little faster than the heavy ones. When you're shooting the 80 yard walk-up you'll notice it. At 30 yards it's like I tell guys about ACC's versus ACE's...you'll never shoot the difference.
