    Another great video.

    what’s a good size cut arrow length for GT Ultralight 300, with 100 grain, 60 lbs, 2" vane, 30" draw, & 315 – fps?

    Another fantastic video with great, well reasoned advice! Thank you for the consistently excellent content! 😀

    Thanks so much….shooting mostly known distances and shooting 63#…given your advice what thin arrow would you most recommend?

  5. Bob Jimenez on July 24, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    what arrows do you recommend for a 40 pound ben pearson recurve?

    Do you have a video on how to set up a long range bow just wondering because I can only shoot about 85 yards and then my sight gets to close to my Arrow

    Watching this video brings up a question I’ve been thinking about for a while.  would you be interested in making a video on the shoot-ability difference between say a .006 arrow like a gold tip hunter/basic arrow factory fletched and cut to your draw length with 100 grain point, vs a .001 spine indexed, fletching tuned, weight matched set of arrows? Out of like a hooter shooter at distances from 20, 40, 60, 80, 100 yards.  Obviously not all hunting distances but just a test to see the actual difference when there is no shooter to mess it up?  Thanks in advance if you do this video idea!

    More great info here. The 25s are a great diameter for 3-d. That mid size shaft is a great selection. Here in Texas where nearly every shoot has wind involved. From 10 to 30 mph is not uncommon. Many use the 23s size or even smaller to fight the deflection. Smaller diameter shafts with heavier points like 120 or 140 grains is becoming more common. Keep the great vids coming. New shooters would be smart to watch you.👍👍👍👍👍

    Easton Hexx is a .001 build and low weight. They make a 6.3 grain in a 480 spine and a 7.2 grain in a 400. Good speed arrow and a small shaft.

    I ordered a V3 from you guys. I’m guessing I’ll be able to come pick it up in about two months. 75lbs, 27.5”. Looking for one arrow appropriate for 3D and hunting. Thoughts? Is there an arrow type that is especially easy to pull out of a target? Pulling stuck arrows pisses me off. You’re a YouTube Archery legend. Thanks.

    Can you use these for a hunting arrow if you build the weight up front for a finished arrow weight of like 450 or 440?

    How do you know what is the right spine arrow to shoot

  13. ObelixCMM on July 24, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    For cheap light 25 size arrows check out Victory X-Ringer HV, on sale at Lancaster for $4.00 per shaft. Available at 250 (6.8 gpi) and 350 (6.2 gpi) spines, nocks and bushings included.

    What about a TAC arrow build video? Targets could be up to 100 uds (from what I heard) so a 3 degree helical fletching may be an issue past 50 yards? Thank you!

    I’m always seeking what works for me as I am not an outlier but a standard deviation from the regular or average archer. (32” DL at 70#. I shoot a G5 Prime Logic CT9 as my Hunting bow and looking to move into indoor and 3D (beginning with TAC VT, 2020). At 6’6”. Hunting setup: G5 Prime Logic CT9 RH 32” DL, 70# DW, Beestinger stabilizers, Axcel CarbonPro, 4 fetch helical Zen vanes with a Carter whisper, FMJ Dangerous Game (768.9 gr) flying in at 230 fps led by QAD Exodus

    I’m looking at building some GT AirStrikes for their weight.

    Is there not a speed limitation when shooting 3-D? Seem like a few years ago they had a speed limit of 288’ per second with a 3% margin of error. So the fastest you could set up your bow to shoot was 291’ FPS.

    Revisiting this video getting ready for 3D this coming year. Explaining to my wife why I’m listening to a guy talking about stiff fat shafts was interesting.
