Waiting for my new IQ hunter pro to get here itís a hybrid sight first 2 pins are stationary with the 3rd pin being a floater.. good luck everyone

Have fun with those GS arrows, they are tough but to me they can be made a lot better. I bought 18 of them last year and had terrible nock run out on about 10 of them. Which caused me to have to nock tune all ten of them. Since then I switched, also keep an eye out on their outsert system because I know of an individual over the course of the hunting season they went from spinning well to a bad wobble.

My comments about going "too heavy" applies to 80% of bow hunters.

You fit in the 10-20% category of hunters who truly know their numbers.

However, about 8 out of 10 bow hunters don't immerse themselves to the depth of experimenting, understanding and knowledge that you have.

When you think about it, the very reason that the industry has gone light over the past 30 years is to get flatter arrow trajectory which proves my point as it relates to the masses.

What's ironic is through me experimenting with light arrow (350 grains) up to very heavy arrows (743 grains) the heavier the arrow seem to go the more velocity they retained down range. This was verified by just shooting my slighter sight and seeing what ranges the tapes were valid at. With the lightweight arrows the slider tapes would be less accurate on longer ranges and say if something was at 60 yards I would need to dial for 62 or 63 yards. Now with my 640 grain arrow at 90 yards is where I had to dial to about 93 to hit the vitals. The picture below was both arrows shot from 40 yards and used the same pin. The arrow with yellow fletching was 550 grains and the arrow with the green was 640 grains. Blew my mind but I shot the same arrow a few times and the hit like this.

Another problem with too light is it can cost you penetration problems and not getting enough penetration to make it through the animal. This gets seen time and time again with deer here in Florida which is extremely sad. But the biggest factor people never discuss is arrow flight in general which hinders penetration greatly whether
