    Default Ok time to tinker- arrows

    I want to go with lighted nocks but the set up i'm using now [beamen ics 400's @ 29"] gives me just about 10% foc with 100 gr heads. I"d like to keep that as a minimum and lighted nocks would bring it under. How should I go about changing the set up with out losing to much speed. I don't want to go with 125 gr heads if i can help it. I tried that and it was like throwing telephone poles at the target lol

    You can go with weighted inserts or 110 field points and broad heads I did a search on both and they are available

    If it's an option you could change fletching. Leave the vanes behind and use feathers.

    One thing about throwing telephone poles is that they are hard to stop!
