Hello--- I am setting up a 40# compound for a friend....It is an exceptionally fast little bow but am curious as to what shafts/broadheads people would recommend. Currently she is in the practice stages and is shooting 30lbs 190fps terminator jr shafts 100 grain heads 25 inch draw (295 gr total weight). I really don't know how hard it will sling them when we go higher poundage. My thoughts though, are to go with a heavier shaft and a good cut on contact head..... The local bow tech and I are kicking around a carbon express 90 with either 100 or 85 grain slick tricks or maybe magnus buzzcuts ( I like Carbon Express and am not a muzzy fan) Thought process here is if I can get her a decently heavy finished arrow (all be it short) that the bow will still sling at 170 plus I will be ok (Trying to get the same kinetic energy as my 40lb recurve which is a proven performer) . What would you do?
It matters not the weapon nor its caliber, rather the caliber of the one who wields it.
