    I am fairly new to archery. I started last year and all of the information can get confusing with so many mixed opinions. Fixed point vs mechanical, arrow weight, ect. I have a 55# with 28in draw length and a 340 beman arrow. I have NAP thunderheads, but was thinking of getting the c.o.c rage ss mechanicals. Thoughts?

    I'm with Fix, get yourself some nasty fixed heads to fling at 55#. if you're new go to a nearby pro shop that knows the bow you shoot well so you're sure you're shooting the right arrow specs.
    Best of luck dude

    55# does not make your bow THAT slow... **Pssst** You can use either... and here's another hint... if you don't like it, change to something else! Enjoy the journey!

    I'd shoot fixed with that draw weight. I upped my arrow weight and went from 60-70 pounds to help push my rage 2 blades. Got tired of not getting great penitration.
