Can someone run this set up through one spine programs? I used the victory spine calculator & it says it good. Just want to make sure before I commit to another dozen arrows & inserts.

2016 Obsession K34
29Ē Dl
60lbs 85% let off

Gt Velocity shaft 27.5Ē
100gr brass insert
70gr FACT weights
125gr head

Should come in around 535gr I believe, so it would be slow.

Just threw one of my older Velocity 300 together with an aluminum insert with 130gr fact weight & 125gr head came out to 538gr with 21.49% foc. Gonna shoot them tomorrow to see how they fly & get a speed on them. I think with 100gr brass inserts the foc will bump up to around 23% maybe.

I can't comment on your set up but I am a big fan of GT Velocity. Great arrows.

Good weight but Iím struggling with the speed. Itís shooting 228fps. That makes me nervous.

Go to a 450 grain arrow and you should pick up about 30 FPS. and i bet with a CoC broadhead you have a hard time keeping arrows in deer

Nothing to be worried about......Trad guys have been having success shooting much slower than that for a long time.

This is true and i am a trad guy too, but i didn't buy a compound to shoot trad velocities. Maybe the OP didn't either. I know his slow arrows will work fine, but rainbow trajectories may not be what he is after

Then the OP shouldnít be building and aggressive EFOC setup. The math is the math and the physics are the physics. No reason to go through the process building an arrow only to be disappointed by the speed when velocity is pretty predictable.

Two things you can control. Mass of the arrow and the speed. For people that want mass and speed then you must by a high K.E. bow.

Iím gonna roll with the arrow build. I was thinking yesterday & really the farthest shot where I hunt is about 25yrds. So I think 228fps would be fine. But definitely will be building some heavier arrows for my Full Throttle. I shot it through the chrony with my the 470gr arrows I built for it & theyíre running 300. So I think I can go a bit heavier. Iím gonna shoot the 538gr arrow out it today & see the speed.

At the distances you have stated that setup will be pretty awesome. You are going to be blowing through some critters.

Just trying to save my shoulders. Iíve shot my Full Throttle several times last week & im feeling it. My right shoulder feels like it has a knife in it at times.

Turned the full throttle down some & shot it. Feels pretty good at 59lbs. Still shooting a 478gr arrow at 271fps. Addding weight to the arrow this evening to get to around 250fps. Should be deadly.
