I was at a shoot on sunday morning, I was at the warm up bales. One of my shooting partners was there w/me. Had ol switchy w/sts out for a test run on some new arrows I made up. This guy, wife, and kid that i have seen at a few shoots were all there shooting. The guy asks me "whats that?" and points to my sts. I tell him what it is and what it does. He says to me, "but look at all the weight your adding", and "how much speed did you loose?" I just had to chuckle a little. Tried to explain what the advantages were and all he could come up with was how much speed i must have lost, and how heavy it must be. Well I might have to take it off, I did shoot 2-8's for a total of 286 out of 290 w/10x, But they were new arrows so maybe that was it.
