    Yes 317 grain with 125 grain broad head seems to shoot hard and really fast I can shoot 30. Yards and in with it so I thought it might be to light

    Default Your arrow is too light

    J758,
    At a minimum you should be shooting at least a 325gr arrow. 5gr/#. 5*65#=325. Shooting less will void your warranty not to mention make your bow louder. I also agree with copterdoc. 317gr with a 125gr head doesn't seem right. What arrow at what lenght are you shooting?

    Specifically what arrow are you shooting. It sounds to me like you are weighing just the weight of the arrow with no tip. Add the tip (point) and your arrows more than likely weigh 442 grains which is more than enough.

    To come up with a total arrow weight of 317 grains I don't even know of any shafts that are light enough to only weigh 317 grains with a 125 gr point.
