    Default Ot2

    go get OT2 its worth the money. or you could just buy the spine matcher from Pinwheel. You get a 10 day free trial of OT2 before you buy it. It has a ridiculous amount of info in it.
    Of all the things I lost I miss my mind the Most!?!?!?

    Here you go man, seems like an alright website: Just do a google search for "arrow FOC calculator" and you will get even more results.

    An FOC between 8 and 12% a general standard. I like an FOC of 10% and higher for hunting. Arrow gets pushed around less on its way to the target.

    You maybe fine at 7%, If you group well in outdoor conditions you probably don't need to change but you can always add weight to the front of your shaft to increase FOC.
    Be good or be good at it.

    Is it OK to assume that you can keep reducing the FOC untill your groups start to disintegrate (with the correct spine). I guess I'm asking, what determines the acceptable range for FOC? Is it trial and error or is there some science to it? And if your groups did start to open up could you add more fletch to correct or are you forced to add front end weight?

    Gold -tip says it is best to have your FOC between 8 and 12- Dont know why but I try to shoot as close to 10 as I can get.
