heavy/efoc arrows have their place in the hunting world, without a doubt but the average hunter stands more to gain from tightening his/her pins gaps (effectively increasing point blank range) while shooting an arrow with a decent amount of grains per # of draw weight. I have found that around 7 grains per # of draw weight we can still build an arrow that:
1. decreases vertical stringing due to a slightly faster trajectory
2. has good foc in the 18%+ range
3. provides good penetration characteristics
4. maintains proper efficiency with the bow
5. are forgiving in flight

I don't due extreme hunting so I don't really need an extreme arrow set-up. I feel we can still build arrows that will get us to the target quickly, quietly and efficiently while increasing our overall chances of success.
