Would I gain anything much by taking off the string squishys besides noise that is? Since I don't have a very fast bow I was hoping to gain a little more push for my arrows but I don't want to hurt the bow. My arrows are a bit heavy and I need to work on getting lighter ones but just havn't found the right combo yet. I have some easton a/c/c 3-04 with 100gr tips which fly ok outside...but not sure if they would be good too much lighter outside> Inside I really should be shooting lighter weight ones but the programs never agree on what is right or wrong. I have Duravane 3-d vanes 2.3" and also Vanetec 2.3 to use. HELLPPPP!! I am shooting 26" and even that is a bit long but not going to go any shorter than that for sure. My Carbon express are fairly heavy but fly really flat and the a/c/c I have to change trajectory and they are almost same weight..go figure. Any suggestions would be welcome. I'm looking at skinny arrows both for outdoors and I use indoors at our range for practice because the big ones eat up the targets pretty fast. The other info on bow etc is in sig.
