    Default Question

    Why did you go to such a heavy arrow if you wanted speed.

    Diamond a really good bow.

    If you want more speed. Get lighter arrows. Say around 400grns

    456 grains is like full metal jacket weight????? How long are your Beaman's??? Sounds like your shooting a 125 head maybe??? If so ditch them and go to 100s. How much arrow is out in front of your rest at full draw????Can you cut some arrow down???

    What draw weight are you running and what do you use the bow for; hunting only? 50gr inserts! - what are those things made of?
