    I changed to 4 1/2 inch feather a while back to still get 2 burns from a full length feather.. Didn't see a big difference in broad head control or noise.

    It's not important to me. I'll concern myself more with physical weight of the arrow and the broadhead.

    I have room to shoot unlimited distances but seldom do so. Most of my shooting is 10-20 yards with occasional shooting out to 30 yards. Increasing my effective range isn't on my list of things to...

    That's your choice, it is tougher than modern equipment and not for everyone. Elitist-ish... but you think his remarks are not.

    Seven whole years of experience.. Schultzy don't waste your breath, he's just a beginner with milk still on his upper lip that thinks he's an expert.. There's a million of them on the internet.

    Cedar arrows work well for me. I have some carbon but I have trouble getting the good arrow flight due to spine issues. It's also a cost factor for me, I can make wood arrows a lot cheaper.

    Keep in mind the amount your bow may be away from center-shot. This changes the spine arrow you will need.

    I'd suggest no lighter than 8x bow weight for hunting (including broad head) and recommend 9 or 10.. I use more but you'll find lots of differing opinions.
