Arrow/Broadhead question...

I'm just getting into archery hunting and was curious about how to choose the right arrow and broadhead combo. I'm using a Jennings Buckmaster with a 31" draw and I'm not sure how fast it's shooting. I don't even know what the draw weight is. I'm not sure if these numbers are needed. The bow was given to me by my brother. Is there any web sites that I can get a good start? I've heard that carbons and come a long way over the past few years.

Arrow/Broadhead question...

I just read an article in Bowhunt America magazine about Carbon Express Aramid KV Kevlar/Carbon arrows. The article says that they are the next generation arrow. Has anyone else heard any pros or cons on them? Here's the web site for them...

Arrow/Broadhead question...

Never heard of the arrow.
Be cautious when buying the latest and greatest. Hunting bows have been around for many many years. Have killed game and are still killing game with arrows that were developed many many years ago.
The best way to go when buying arrows is. Determine your draw length. Determine your poundage. Use an arrow that is spined for 5 to 10 lbs above and below that length and weight. When you buy arrows that spine on the cusp of the draw and weight. You may get questionable flight on a release that wasn't picture perfect.
You want some forgiveness in your hunting bows. Chances are you won't be able to set that perfect stance and get that perfect release. Nature has a way of putting branches and trees in the path and branches, logs, stumps, ditches and slopes on the uneven ground.

Three blade, 1" diameter with replaceable blade is the norm for compound bows..
Note: The greater the number of blades and/or larger the diameter. The great the wound channel.
