So I have to say I was really pleasantly surprised today. I had Larry at A&H archery put together a new set of limbs using their new design. Was hoping to get a second, heavier set of limbs for the buffalo hunt.

Well, he undershot the weight but sent them to me to try out along with another heavy set of the older design he had in stock. Dropped 8lbs in draw weight and picked up the exact same performance as my current limbs - pretty darn decent trade off. The 66lb, 63lb, and new 58lb limbs all shot within 5fps of each other using my 815 gr arrow - between 170 and 175 fps. Keep in mind I'm picking up another 4-5lbs at my draw length.

Gonna monkey with the setup one more time, but think I am pretty close - need another 50gr up front to have the best selection of broadheads and the addtl weight can't hurt if I can get it to fly right. Once I get confirmation that my inserts are gonna be ready, I can move onto broadhead selection.

Well, I might be in the minority... my favourite buffalo arrow is the Grizzlystik Safari. They fly beautifully for me, and are simple and straight-forward. With the internal weight system, they are easy to get nicely nose-heavy and still fly great. They can handle a range of point weights and be shot from a variety of heavy bows.
