GoldTip Kinetic with standard components and a gr field point. But don't make a mountain out of a molehill. In basic terms, KE is the amount of energy that a moving object possesses. As can be seen, I shot the jugs near the bottom of the flat section because that was the most consistent part of the plastic. For competition 3D shooting, where noise and penetration really don't make a difference, lighter arrows with flatter trajectories are definitely better. Really appreciate the advice. Obviously, the larger the game, the more KE you'll need.
Right or wrong, it's a fact.
Carbon Arrow Mass, Speed & Kinetic Energy
This site already contains a few related articles such as Heavy vs. After the normal speed of both arrows is determined, the arrows will be shot through a water filled milk jug at six feet, with the chronograph placed four feet behind the jug. So you'll need to know a thing or two about arrow mass and industry safety standards before you start sorting through those GPI specifications. Some years ago, we received a letter from a gentleman who emphatically insisted that kinetic energy was NOT the best mathematical predictor of hunting penetration with a bow and arrow. Phone book shot 1. So if you want your bow to shoot "flat", lightweight arrows are going to be a must, but like with most things in archery, there are trade-offs to consider.
