Ok, my season is over due to me filling the first part of my tag (not being able to shoot another deer until after Mo rifle season) and due to unforseen circumstances, we lost our lease to hunt on so its back to public land hunting for me for now.
Anyway, this past weekend, the wife and little one were away so the cat got to play, and I decided to test a few different arrows that I had my eyes on or currently shot. I tested 4 different arrows to see how they shot out of the bow and I liked them all for different reasons and they all shot beautifully. So heres the dilema... I can't decide as to which one I really wanna narrow it down to for my "go to" arrow that will be the one I set everything up for and my bread and butter so to speak, so I am gonna ask for some opinions from my Elite buddies
So which arrow would you pick:
All arrows are 28" on the string to end of shaft and will be shot at 60.8lbs out of a 2009 Z28 w/ Rev Cams. The numbers were put through a speed/ke calculator to give me a close estimate as my guy with the chrono was hunting all weekend, so couldn't get accurate numbers.
Arrow A - Easton A/C/C's
3-49 spine = 374.4gr (average finished arrow weight w/100gr tip)
= 281.8 fps
= 66.6# ke
Arrow B - Carbon Express Maxima's
250 spine = 346.1gr (average finished arrow weight w/100gr tip)
= 292.3 fps
= 65.7# ke
Arrow C - Carbon Express Mayhem's
250 spine = 387.9gr (average finished arrow weight w/100gr tip)
= 278.3 fps
= 66.8# ke
Arrow D - Gold Tip Velocity Pro's
400 spine = 328.1gr (average finished arrow weight w/100gr tip)
= 298.3 fps
= 64.9# ke
Again only looking at these 4 arrows, do not want recommendations for other arrows or that your mom's sisters' brother's neighbor's wife's best girlfriend's cat shoots X brand arrows and has better luck with them...
