Episode 56 - One Arrow To Rule Them All
Welcome to Episode 56. In this episode I'm back down the arrow rabbit hole looking for an all round arrow to shoot with both NFAS and EFAA. I've shot .166, .204, .245 and .359 and each has its pros and cons. I need something that will shoot out to 80+ yards without being too badly affected by wind drift, but also something that is fat enough to catch lines when shooting spots. I'm also looking for a forgiving arrow that can hopefully mitigate my bad shots (there are way too many of those ;-) ). Looking on the better known, more respected YouTube channels led me to Nock On, Exodus Outdoor Gear and a lesser known channel Mat From Texas, who, along with John Stallone and Exodus Outdoor Gear have convinced me to add first bend indexing to my arrow building process. Nock On Archery has a really fascinating podcast with Dr. James Park who received his doctorate in arrow flight.
