Congratulations Bender. What is your arrow set-up for that bow?

POC woodies, 27" long 5/16" dia. .600 deflection (AMO standard) 70 grain points, 3 X 3" fletch, weighing in at 340 grains +/- 5 grains.
No cresting, cap dipping, or other frippery.

But I do name them.

Thanks. Maybe you will need to add some flames to go with Kirks hot numbers and the flames he's putting on his bows! Are they tapered shafts?

Yes the, back 9" are tapered. I do them myself. I tried doing a barreled arrow, but these are so light and with using a 1/4" 60 grain point FOC went down near to 6%. At that point the arrow became basically unshootable for me. Sure the arrow would leave the bow, but there was no telling where it would land.

Flames huh? I kinda like that!
