    What do you like better for a hunting arrow: A lighter faster arrow (less drop), or a heavier arrow with more kenitic energy/penitration (more drop)?

    I like the idea of a more powerful arrow. I like it to be heavier and hit harder. A lighter/faster arrow seems to just deflect off bone too much. I like the arrows to go through the bones, so it needs to be heavy.

        I had a low poundage bow and i used a aluminum arow which is light, at about 35 lbs i my arrow went almost the whole way through a nine point, and this deer was heavy. when we looked at it more closely the broadhead was pushing the skin out. So i would go lighter.

            the longest shots that I take are only up to 40 yards. for shorter shots,I think that a heavier arrow will be more sufficient when considering force to knock down power a heavier arrow would probably be a better choice at short yardages. I'm no ballistics scientists, but I would rather throw a cannon ball through a deer than a BB. If I can make that aroow fly just as accurate and have plenty of speed why not.

              definitely a heavier penetration, especially with my 50 pound bow. And I am limited on my yardage, so I don't need a fast arrow.
