Thanks. I also looked it up on their web site, and looks good, better than my drop away that had nothing above the arrow it to box it in. Still curious what happens if you draw back, but decide not to shoot and let up on your draw? Does the arrow then stay boxed in, or does it flop around?

Bit of an update on my end:
I just picked up a dozen Easton Carbon Excel 340's and 100 grain points. Doing the math, I'm now about 105 grains lighter per arrow than I was with my aluminum XX75 - 2216's (404 vs 509 grains). The new shafts are also about 1/8th of an inch narrower in diameter.
My backyard only lets me go to 25 yards, so the serious ballistic science is going to have to wait (the range is too short and my skills are sufficiently rusty to where drop and consistency of my hold are hard to tell apart). The first observable benefit is penetration. The new skinny shafts are going 2.5" deeper into my foam target.
from a new bow versus old bow perspective, I'd be very curious to see how wide a range you can get on your sight pins. With the newly added fiber optic ring sight and whisker biscuit, my old Golden Eagle currently looks a little like a Model T with a modern EFI V8 in it. at least without getting into major holdover.

Good stuff JB - Thanks! Looks like we'll be running about the same poundage and only about ten grains off on the arrow. Any difference between my final pin layout and yours will then be down to bow speed and nothing else. Stay tuned!:beer:
