Bob — Footed wood shafts are heavy, too heavy to add a 300-grain head to and not go way overweight for the 50-something pound longbows I now shoot. I still have a set of those, from an early experiment many years ago. If you want to shoot wood and want good total weight and don’t care about FOC, they’re a good way to go. But I want to hold total weight as close as possible to 700 grains, with 300 of it up front. It’s a good set-up with good balance between total weight and FOC, and as good as I’ve been able to work up with wood. But the tendency of wood to break behind the head is magnified with a monster head, so that’s the issue. And too, it’s play. Thanks for your good suggestion.
