      Ok, As I mentioned in other threads, I got a nice set up of efoc arras! 28.72%.

      My ? is: Matching efoc more important than over all weight matching?

      For example, my target and hunting arrows are set up as follows: 225 head, 100g insert, 25g footing, A&A fletching on a GT pro hunter shaft at 28 7/8″.

      Total weight is 607g.

      My flu flu’s are as follows: 225g blunt, 100 g insert, 25g footing, 4-4″ flu flu feathers on the same arrow.

      Total weight is 631g.

      Should I keep same set up, or work on getting my flu flu’s closer to my target/hunting arrows.?? Or is it better to keep the arrow the same regardless of the feathers used and total weight?

      Trajectory is going to be totally different with a flu flu (which is the whole idea). No need to worry about such a small difference.

      Thats what I thought, so just build them the same, or should I drop the blunt to a 175? instead of the 225. It will change my efoc, but weight will get closer. I figure small game/stumps shouldn’t need such a heavy blunt…..?

      Small game deserve just as ethical a kill we can manage. If Joe would make a 300gr blunt I would have that on my flu flu’s. I believe you saw mine in action last time you were here.:D IMHO

      Yup – like Mike said, I also still shoot a heavy blunt, and I do try to keep my flu-flu/small game arrow weight the same, or very close to, my normal hunting arrow weight. But 20 grains or so lighter on a flu-flu just isn’t going to make much of a difference, imo – you’re still quite close to your normal arrow, and as long as the fly ok (well, for a flu-flu, anyway…) then you should be fine.

      roger that!

      The flu flu’s are about 20g heavier with the same head.

      I will leave em alone, they fly good!

      I guess I am over thinking it….:roll:
