New heavier arrow setup #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

After a few months of reading about heavier Arrow setups and the benefits they provide, I decided to hop on. I was previously shooting RIP TKO 350’s that were around 400gr with a 100gr tip. I liked them but they were awfully light and I was never crazy about the outserts.

Now, I switched to 300 spine Axis (10.7gpi), 50gr Brass HIT, and 1” Footers made by Elk River Archery. Around 29” with 100gr tip puts me just shy of 500gr. The footers weigh 12gr and every single one of them was within .1gr of one another. The guys at Elk River Archery were great to deal with on Facebook and would highly recommend the footers. They all spin perfectly. I upsized my field tips to 5/16th and the fit could not better.

Heavier arrows #archery

Ive always favored a heavier arrow for hunting. I realize my arrows are light by todays heavy arrow resurgence standards. Last year I shot 450 grain carbon express SD red zone arrows with 100 grain heads (450 total weight).Those arrows fly and group great for me but with the half outsert style front end they are not durable at all. The actual outsert is strong but the arrow is somewhat compromised and breaks right behind the connection a lot. Also the inserts are not consistantly straight. 7 out of 10 won’t spin true with a straight broadhead. So this year I switched to the standard carbon express red zone arrows and again they preform great with my setup (29 inch arrows 100 grain heads shot from Bow Tech Realm SS 70 pounds 29.5 inch draw). Because these arrows have a standard insert they are 50 grains lighter at total weight of 400 grains.

My question is how can I add total weight to my arrow without screwing up the excellent performance I’m getting. If I simply add 125 heads will that put too much weight forward?
Id like to use these arrows but is there another high quality arrow with good FOC out of the box I should consider? Ive read that Easton and gold tip offer a ton of different add on weights but not sure I can afford to buy a bunch of higher end arrows and accessories to test. I’d like to find high quality with high straightness tolerances that perform great with fixed blade broad heads and be at 450 to 500 grains total weight.
Any help would be appreciated

So I recently switched from 400 spine with g5 montecs 100gr to a heavier setup for elk. (trying something knew because apparently I want to break something that’s fixed) I have a 26.5" draw. New arrows are 350 spine with a 180gr tip. I walk back tuned my bow with both my 400s field tipped and then with my montecs and was spot on out to 50. After trying to adjust, I am shooting strong left. 3"s at 20 and a foot at 30. I know there’s a million variables, but any help would be appreciated. I assume it has a lot to do with the spine. I’m not new to archery but I’m knew to change and tuning. Bow is a hoyt defiant 30 pulling 58lbs. Any help is appreciated. First Pic is with montecs second is with valkrye setup.

Which gets the edge: Higher FOC & lighter arrow or Lower FOC & heavier arrow

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

After reading through many, many threads and tinkering with OT2 a lot, I’ve put together 3 different arrow configurations that will all shoot well out of my bow according to OT2:

1) Higher FOC/Lighter Arrow:
– 439 gr.
– 16.97% foc
– 81.88 KE
– .57 momentum

2) Mid FOC/Mid Weight Arrow:
– 513.2 gr.
– 14.11% foc
– 82.81 KE
– .61 momentum

3) Lower FOC/Heavier Arrow:
– 592.8 gr
– 12.65% foc
– 83.6 KE
– 0.66 momentum

Ideally, I would like both a high FOC and a heavy arrow. However, with my current bow and the selection of arrows available, I am unable to achieve this combination. I know that all of these combinations are plenty capable of killing deer, but I’m interested in hearing thoughts on which of these is the best substitute since I can’t hit the high FOC/heavy arrow goal. I’m aware that there will be a variety of opinions, but I’d like to hear them nonetheless.

Working Up to Heavier Draw Weight

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi, all. This is my first post on this forum. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

I am 58 years old and recently bought a second-hand bow after a 30-year layoff from archery. I used to shoot a 48# Bear Tigercat a lot and was pretty good at it. But I sold it about eight years ago after not using it for 20 years or so.

I now have a convenient place to shoot and just bought a second-hand bow and other equipment. After trying several bows in my local shop I realized that I was going to want to start off in the 25# range. I’d decided on a PSE Optima because I liked the feel and the ability to upgrade the limbs without buying a whole new bow. But…I then had an opportunity to buy a second-hand Optima at 35# at a price that would let me pick up the 25# limbs for a total investment of the price of a new bow with just one set of limbs.

This (finally) leads to my question. I immediately took the bow out to the range and was able to shoot it but it wasn’t comfortable. I could draw properly and anchor but couldn’t hold comfortably and was rushing my shots. But I could shoot it. I am interested in opinions on whether I’ll be able to work my way up to shooting the #35 pounder comfortably or whether I should invest the $ 90 for the lower strength limbs. I’ll probably only be able to shoot about three times per month.

Thanks again,

Larry
