She's a shooter, & if I see you when I have it with me, you're more than welcomed to shoot it.

Love you Brother!

Can you give us some info on the shafts and points you are using and string ( Port Orford Ceda shafts , Flemish Twist string ???) and such.

There are so many fascinating facets of traditional bow shooting and for the most part they are either ignored or simply unappreciated.
Shoot 30" GT Traditional 400, 150Gr insert, 145gr SteelForce PhatHead, 5 inch feathers nock collar, & insert collar.. String is endless loop fast-flight. Tried using douglas fir arrows but the GT's fly much better with this bow.

Nice, very nice.
I have quite a few Port Orford Cedar shafts that are okay but I like the carbons better. I have not done any scientific research (ha ha) but I do believe that I get more speed from the carbon than the cedar. For sure the arc of the arrow in flight is flatter with the carbon shafts.
Cedar is prettier though....

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Speed & flat flight don't play a roll in my choice of arrows. I shoot instinctively, I just pick a spot and let my subconcious do the rest...easy. The only things I look for are a 30" arrow with 10gr or more per pound of drawweight and proper spine. It not uncommon for me to take a few deer per season using different bow, with different draw weights, and different arrows (some Fir). At 15 yards & in as long as I have a proper follow-through, it doesn't matter which bow I'm using.
