    444 give or take for me. I find it’s a good balance.

    I’m on the light side for sure I think 386 gr. When I shoot a deer in the vitals and don’t get a pass through I will think about changing the arrow setup to something heavier. I’ve killed about a dozen or more deer with this arrow and have always made it through the animal with a chisel tip fixed blade.

    387 on my old setup. 530 on the new one with 100 grain tips. Victory xtorsions are heavy. 13.2 foc and I can go heavier with a 125 broadhead/fieldpoint. Not sure its necessary tho. 28 inch draw 70 # Helix. I was actually surprised how heavy the whole setup was when I weighed it. My old bag target wasnt sufficient to stop the new arrows, so I had to upgrade my target too.
