Mathews Drenalin question
I'm shooting a Mathews Drenalin, 29" DL. and just cranked up the draw weight to 70lb. It shot at 285 fps with a carbon express Mayhem 250.
My question is this. At 70lbs should i move my arrow up to a 350 or more?
I just bought new arrows last year, so i have a ton of 250's right now. If 70lbs is too much, should I lower it down to 65 or 60 lbs?
Also, right now i've been using QAD exodus Broadheads. Killed a bunch of deer with them, however the more deer i shoot, the more i'm finding I'm really not getting good blood trails. Even this year i shot a buck at 15 yds took lung and heart. the exit was right in the "armpit" of far shoulder. Literally at times was tracking "drops" of blood.
So i was thinking of going to something bigger like Rage hypodermic or Grim Reaper whitetail specials. Problem is i think i'm getting about 64 ft-lbs of KE.
Would either of those broad heads have issues with that set up??
