I am shooting about 48# @ 28″ and I am finding I am right on the line. With a standard D50 string that came with the bow I had 500 GT trads flying pretty well with 200 gr heads. I just bought a Laser Fast flight string and everything started shooting way weak. I had some full length 400s and shot them, also weak.
I cut off the 400s to 30 inches and moved my rest closer to center from moving it way out to get the 500s to shoot (unsuccessfully). Now the 30 inch 400s are behaving like the 500s did at the same length. I guess now I am glad I bought the 400s where I was a bit miffed I bought the absolute wrong arrows in the beginning.
Maybe now I see I was right on the line between the two weight arrows so it is difficult. I don’t know how you guys shooting off the shelf with little adjust-ability in the bow ever get things tuned in right.
