    I know there a inexpensive little tool out there that lets you measure FOC. Also theres always the archery software titles like TAP or OnTarget.

    The front of center has a lot to do with the way an arrow flies.If an arrow was perfectly balanced in the center it would try to swap ends in flight.The recommended F.O.C. is between 8-12% and is critical for broadhead flight.I have found that 10% has been a very good number for my arrows in the past.The reason for this thread was to find an easier method,rather than balancing my arrows,taking measurements and marking up one of my arrows with a permanent marker.That link for Goldtip was exactly what I was looking for.
