Re: Aluminum Arrows

I like alum arrows just for using hot melt to keep inserts in at both ends, when I bend an alum arrow it is way easier to get component's out to use again....

Re: Aluminum Arrows

what I do to lose some weight off the tail end of my arrows, is I cut the nock/insert down to bout 1/4" long....instead of weighing 25gr, mine only weigh 7 gr :wink: ....which raised the FOC % of my arrows to help fly better....

Re: Brace height vs limb stress
