I’m in the process of making a new elk arrow setup.so far I’m using a gt 7595 traditional,100 gr.brass insert,300 gr.field point,1″1/2 2213 aluminum footing,30″3/8 length, 4 x a/a 21/2″ fletching 75×105 degree.Total weight 777 grains.Shafts are still a little on the weak side but getting real close.Down to making 1/32 cuts.Is it just me but the closer I get the more I’m getting nervous about going to far.Moving at a snail’s pace ,this is my third day of tuning.Had about thirty head of Roosevelt’s across the property yesterday.Nothing like a little inspiration to keep it going. Going to ditch the screw in adapters and use the glue-in/glue-on brass adapters for my Tuffheads.I will measure the foc when I finish with the tuning process.A big thanks to Dr.Ed for all you do!…Cheers!!

I was cutting the width of the saw blade and allowing them a touch weak cause fletching stiffens a wee bit but you’re fletched…
That’s a heavy arrow!
Ought to punch thru a bufferlo if you shot one!
It is gnarly… I numbered them once I stepped back to be sure any “fliers” were the arrow and not me and kept a chart to make sure the same shafts were mis-behaving.
One friend teased me that I named the danged things… and have a funeral if I loose one..almost… shaft, inserts, heads… all get pricey but the time is the killer when one goes awol!

Here’s my setup.Arrow length 29″9/16,weight 770 grns, foc 27 percent. Bow predator velocity riser,64# hunter dx limbs.At my draw weight I’m pulling 60#.Using a beiter plunger that has a piece of shelving material glued to the button that makes for a quiet draw.A few clicks to increase plunger pressure and arrows are spot on!
