    Default my next arrow test .

    im going to be setting up 12 st axis nanos on the hooter shooter . 500's with 100 grain points . he also wants me to do the arrows with firenocks on them . i wont have the firenocks for awhile so im going to do them with regular nocks first . how much if any do you think the extra weight to the tail of the arrow is going to affect the grouping when i redo them ?

    guardian 58 lbs 26.5 draw . 27.5 arrow .tuning it to shoot is not a problem . what im wondering is what affect the lighted nock is going to have . theres a lot of people that set there bow up for regular arrows than add a lighted nock to one arrow and not think its going to have any affect on there sighting . ive seen some move a arrow as much as well lets just say a lot at 20 yards .i know the point of impact will change but what im wondering is what affect it s going to have on the arrows as a group . il have them shooting 1 hole at 23 yards with the regular nocks . than when the new nocks come in il put them on indexing them the same as the tuned ones where .
    just did some maxima 350 3d selects . the nocks were extra tight on the serving shot them with the hooter and could not get them to group under 2 inches at 23 yards . change nocks and then adjusted them to all go in same hole . ( i use 23 yards because that where i had to set up the machine to keep it out of the way of shooters)

    I'll go on record predicting that they affect the group size very little as long as the nocks fit the string properly. I've been wrong before though.

    I'll second JC on this. A few grains won't affect the arrow that much, all other things being equal.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Yeah but it's not a few grains though.
    Arrow spine will be affected and FOC will be affected.

    I don't like having weight on the back end of an arrow at all...

    I didn't notice a change on my goldtips out to 40. We'll see what comes of the test.

    Those nocks are a lot heavier then the standard nock....so things are going to change. The spine on the shaft is going to change...and they aren't going to hit in the same spot....but you may not have to adjust the rest or the nocking point much.

    Question though....why does he want his arrow that long. My arrows have plenty of over hang with a 27" shaft and a 28.25" draw. He is going to have about 3"+ of over hang
