What's your arrow weight, & draw weight?

Post by Backwaters Bowhunter on Fri Aug 09, 2013 3:56 pm

I'm just curious, I've always shot a compound and this will be my first solid hunting season with a longbow. My arrows weigh around 550 grains, and my bow is 45#, probably closer 47# since my draw is a tad longer. Just wanted to see what everyone was shooting. Have a good one.

I shoot Douglas Fir (surewood shafts) with 130 grain STOs broadheads and natural turkey feathers.
Total weight is approximately 546 grains.
Draw weight is 45#@27"

I shoot 500 grain arrows with a 65lb draw in a compound. My arrow is an Easton Axis and I shoot 125 grain heads with MaxHunter vanes.
