whats with all the hype on how fast a bow can shoot? expecally when a heavier arrow and head will do far superior damage. yeah you cant shoot twice as far and impress your buddys with a lighter setup but anything within 30yds is drt with a heiver setup .which 30yds is as far as most shoot anyway. id take a heavy arrow traveling at 290-310fps any day over a lighter setup flying at 320-340fps. the kenetic energy is just insane with a heavy setup. it is a disadvantage at longer distances but why take away weight when you can have insane penatration an more kenetic energy. the fps I used is just an examle over most crossbows. I shoot a bow that is around 300fps and have found that a heavier setup is a serious advantage.
