As a traditional shooter

As a traditional shooter (longbow) how much weight in the arrow depends on what I am hunting. For moose or bear I prefer as heavy an arrow as I can put together, to increase momentium and penetration. I shoot carbon shafts that I increase the weight by inserting weed wacker string.  I also shoot a 150 gr broadhead on them. For deer, a standard shaft and a 125 gr broadhead.
