Sweet. That is a great little handle. One day, when I am rich like Mike I am gonna buy some of those bakelight limbs and stick em on that and the Sheep. I bet that would be awesome. It is amazing how the right arrow make/point weight can change the way a bow shoots for you. I put some Carbon Vapor 2k's with 100grn brass and 175grn points (arrows are 28.5") on the fly with either some 50# Hoyt shorts or some 45# TradTech longbow limbs both set to pull right around 50# and it is a whole different bow than when I use my Black Max's with 200 up front.

Want to hear something odd? I had a few minutes to shoot yesterday so I decided to bareshaft the arrows. EXTREMELY weak! They didn't start coming back in line until I dropped the point weight to 100gr!
I would have though that with all the longer range stuff we were shooting I would have noticed them flying poorly. Thing is they weren't! They are really cruising with the 100gr points.

How were the fletched arrows flying with the 100 grain tips, Mike?
How were the bareshafts flying?

Just curious...

The bare shafts were still flying a little weak but not bad. The fletched shafts (3 fletch 4", right helical with a onestringer wrap) seemed to fly wonderfully.

I'm actually a little disappointed. With the 140gr heads they were in my comfort zone for where they were hitting. Now they are hitting considerably higher. They are quick though! I was going to screw on some razor sharp Wentzel Woodsmans and try to perforate something with it tomorrow afternoon.
