I am actually a bigger proponent of arrow weight, not broadhead weight, in terms of effectiveness. You need to have some umph behind your broadhead, some weight to carry the momentum through the animal, in order to get maximum penetration. A good weighted arrow, with a fast bow, is a good thing.
I agree about arrow weight. I think one of the benefits of the faster bows is that we can afford to shoot heavier arrows. Sure you lose a little speed, but you gain penetration and you're still faster today with the fast bow and arrow than you were a few years back with the slower bow and lighter arrow.
I am going to do some more research about the heavier broadpoint. What does your arrow weigh?
I own both, but currently shoot the 100 grain muzzys. I also have some Grim Reapers. Just depends if I want to shoot fixed or mechanical. Have not shot an animal with either yet, so I don't know my preference.
I actually thought that I got more accurate when I dropped from a 125 grain arrow to a 100 grain arrow. I switched a bunch of stuff also when I switched broadheads. I changed vanes and shortned my arrow wraps from 6 inches to 4 inches. I was trying to lower my total arrow weight. I was using an arrow that weighed around 520 grains and I now have it around 450. I think that helped my arrows shoot faster and in turn shoot flatter. But since then I have shot some of 1265 grain field tips and they just do not seem to group as well.
good to know. I think I will do some experimenting in the off season and see if I cant improve my accuracy and increase my kinetic energy. Sheesh, i am feeling like a geek because there is nothing wrong with my accuracy, but yet I have to tweek with it and mess with it. Oh well, it will give me something to do other than posting
The record books, that are put out by Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young and where I live is Henry Kelsey they are a great way to research a state or a province for big game. This does take some time but the knowledge it gives you, can be very valuable. Not all hunters have their trophies recorded, as where I live after the Hanson Buck became the new world record typical Whitetail, we saw a flood of hunters and now that has happened, some hunters are shying away from the record books but...
