What's close? Are you worried you're going to see a difference on the target with +/- 4gr tolerance? It's most likely less than 1% of your overall arrow weight. Unless they claimed a tighter tolerance than +/- 4 gr I wouldn't get too worked up about it.
I agree, and I think the shafts are +/-3gr so you could easily batch them together (which my OCD forces me to do anyways) to make everything equal out

Bringing this thread back up to the top. Shot my DS 125 gr 1.25" heads at 70 yards over the weekend. Flew really well and hit with FPs to as good as I could shoot. Very impressed with how sharp they have stayed. Probably put the same head through a target at least 30 times now. Wasn't shaving sharp but still finger-nail-catching sharp. A few strokes on a fine ceramic and is was popping hair again. Very cool.

Heading up to AK in August for Caribou. 505 gr Black Eagles @ 280 fps. Should I hunt with the smaller 1" Daysix heads or the larger ones? I guess it is a question of wind/flight vs cut. Haven't made up my mind yet.

505 at 280 is moving man! I’d say if you’re shooting the wider ones that well just keep after it. You’re not gonna see a ton more drift between the 2 heads when you consider it’s only about .090” per side that you’re cutting off, with that much energy retention you don’t have anything to worry about
