Re: testing of 175 grains in enforcer
Getting the correct forward of center is important. If the 175 grain heads are working well in your crossbow I wouldn't change a thing. But, I will offer a few suggestions and the reasons I think it might be better.
Strictly my opinion here, but I think that adding weight to the front of a shaft will only take us so far in finding what we are looking for. All you are doing, is basically changing the spine of the arrow to achieve a different result. There is a better way to get to what you are searching for. Please don't take this the wrong way as I'm trying to help and this is just a suggestion.
I've had some great results with this arrow and you might too. I glue a 10 1/4 inch peice of XX75 in 1915 spine into the front of a carbon shaft (I prefer Victory, but it will work in Gold Tip Laser II) just behind the brass insert. What you are creating is a dual spine arrow - stiff in the front and not so stiff in the back section. These are expensive to build but they will allow you to use an 85 grain broadhead. In my testing, I've found the 85 grain heads to be the most accurate. If your goal is to have the most accurate arrows with some added weight to maintain downrange energy they are worth building. Put some Blazer or Fusion vanes on them and walk them back to 100 yards just for fun. You will see what I mean.
