(310 grain arrow with no point or fletchings for total weight between 385 and 610)
this is the best method I've found to check tip weight to shaft. but bow must be put back into factory settings.


by doing this method you will find the correct reaction. now this is with precut arrows. the best way to get an arrow with correct reaction is the cut and trim method.

Thanks. I only bought one test kit of field points. I guess I need a couple more so I can group tune.

4 fletched with AAE Pro Max Vanes
Standard Nocks

Total weight +/- 611 grains
Chrono is still broken at Archery Country but Archers Advantage estimates roughly 270 fps
FOC is 21.73%
Momentum of 73.25 slug ft/sec
Kinetic Energy of 98.89 ft lbs.

After a couple clicks on the micro adjust QAD, the field tips, bare shafts, and Iron Will Broadheads are all grouping together out to 27 yards (as far as I can reach in the back yard).

Good luck with these arrows I shot them a few years ago and they were very brittle. Ive used the x impact, deep impact, carnivores and currently use the spartan. X impact has been the weakest. The others are awesome.

You due need at least two of the different weights. Now you can put paper over the target and shoot the fletched then put tip on the bare and just mark impacts.
