Zack Doyle, next time I go to board a pirate ship, I'm taking you and your bow with me. You could probably sink a ship with that set up! Really nice! I have been shooting PSE for about 15 years and I gravitate toward 125grain tips. I like light and fast. Lately however, I've really been considering going back to a traditional or recurve.

I also prefer light and fast when it comes to my compound setup. A 370 grain arrow at 70# is fairly light, but provides the best mixture of speed and energy. That weight produces the most Kinetic Energy at the fastest speed possible without losing it on my particular setup. As far as the recurve setup goes, I prefer to shoot at least 10 grains of arrow weight per pound of draw weight. It not only quiets the bow down, but greatly aids in penetration. The heavy broadhead up front helps the arrow recover faster out of the bow, and the cut on contact nature of its' design also increases penetration. When you're only shooting 195fps, you need all the help you can get.

I think it may be very convenient. You can easily compare prices in different countries and find your dream hunting. Your opinion is highly needed!
