I'm working on new product development and I'm curious what you guys are using for total weight upfront on your arrows including the insert, broadhead, and collar if used. Let me know what you are using or want to use for total weight. Thanks!
I try not to "double buy" components, so I use the standard HIT inserts (16 gr), with an Iron Will Collar (25 gr), and easy to find 100 gr heads. Likely on the light side by Rokslide standards.
I am testing some different shafts and they fly better with 150grs up front so will look for a collar/insert combo to get that as I like my IW 100gr BHs.
Last year had 200 total up front (100 gr point with 50 gr insert and 50 gr screw in weight). This year going to try 225 total up front (100 gr point with 50 gr insert and 75 gr screw in weight).
I have two different setups that get me nearly identical total arrow weights and trajectories. One is 275 gr total (200 gr broadhead and 75 gr insert). The other is 292 gr total (125 gr broadhead, 145 gr insert, and 22 gr collar). In the process of moving the second up to 317 or 342 by increasing the broadhead to 150 or 175 gr while looking for a lighter shaft, though. Admittedly, the second is also a bit of a geardo setup that just ended up that weight due to the insert and collar functionality that I wanted.
This year I'll probably glue in 50gr brass inserts, and play with the 10 and 25gr collars to see what flies best. 300 Spine Axis cut 29" carbon to carbon.
