100, but never really put much thought into why. Arrow flies true and generally get a full pass through on Texas white tail when making a broadside shot. So I guess I've never questioned it because "if it ain't broke, why...."

125's with a 60 grain insert.

I like the 125's not only for the FOC but you generally get a larger diameter BH.

100-600 grain - I'm not picky!

All kidding aside, most of us hunt in set stands with known distances. We are all fine with 100 or 125,

I shoot both but mostly 125's. Most archery hunters will not notice any difference in the point of impact at 25 yards and less between a 100 grain and a 125 grain arrow. The only real issue is whether your arrow has the correct spine to shoot both. When practicing, I will shoot field tips from 85 grain to 125 grain and can't tell the difference in point of impact when shooting a 20 yard target. I can tell a little difference at 30 yards and then it real starts to show at 40 and at 60+ it's a real big difference.

125 for me. I prefer the extra KE at point of impact even if it is just for my own satisfaction.
