    Default Foc?

    Ok I am not putting this on the AT because I don't want to be irritated by the superstars that know everything and think it's a dumb question. So knowing most folks here respond with respect and great knowledge can you direct me to a place to understand what this is and how I can check mine I am sure it is probablt wrong and just want to know what it's all about. Thanks all.

    Hey thanks GD. I did a search on here and found lots and these are good starts as well. Understanding it now just was wondering how to figure it for my set up thought I might be a bit off of the 10-15 percent for hunting. Just need to figure it out now. Thanks again.

    Hey Brad, its just like shooting darts the more weight you have in the front of the center of the arrow the better hitting power. On my old arrows I couldnt get all the arrows to hit the same all the time. I bought some new arrows and I hit great all the time. Checked the Foc and the old ones were too stiff and too little foc.

    Hey Hutch, just used some of the links given and with the current set up it says FOC is 10.36 with an arrow weight of 382.8 grains. Wouldn't think alot of KE with that. Punched in the 75/95 and it came out with 428.1 grains and a FOC of 11.97% with a 125 BH. Seems off some for hunting maybe?

    Yeah that doesn't seem right. What is the length of the arrows you are shooting? What is the weight of the tips and the arrow.
