    Default Doh!

    Oops...I erred. Added the spline instead of the actual gpi.
    I just got this arrow in 340: http://www.eastonarchery.com/products/product/42 29" @ 10.3gpi so my weight was off.

    New numbers:


    arrow shaft - 298.7
    insert - 15
    nock - 8
    blazers - 18
    tip - 125

    total 464.7

    Could the chrono be off? Seems high.

    Default huh

    Just learned a little something about chronographers that I thought I'd share just in case I'm not the only one unaware of this. From the AT site:

    A chrono can be off, but usually lighting is to blame.

    The difference between 3200 fps and 3230fps might not seem like much when shooting your .300, but with a bow 30fps means the world!

    I am not sure how they are calibrated, but lighting is usually at fault for bad readings. Shadows or light at the wrong angle can really mess with a chrono. We had an indoor range setup shooting bows and if somebody stood 3 feet to the left of the chrono when you shot, it would make your bow 40fps slower. Kinda funny...just a shadow or blocking a light source is all.
