    well i went out and shot today, i did pretty good while getting my new strings broken in,i gained quite a bit of speed over the stock strings, not sure how much but im shooting about 5 inches high now on all my pins. i shot 2 arrows and decided to take a picture and put up a poll since i never did a poll question before. (forgot the picture)

    Field Point left, no cuts just went through layered area. And on right a broadhead of some sort because I can see something of a cutting area!

    i’ll let it go till i get home from work tonight, and reveal the answer, i’ll give ya some information on the bow besides whats in my signature, i paper tuned it with the stock strings, then attempted to walk back tune it don’t know if it worked or not, then i changed the strings, no paper and havent’ walked back yet, i haven’t even adjusted the site pins yet.

    I’m saying that the broadhead’s on the right and the FP’s on the left…….There seems to be a little cutting going on with the shaft on the right but who knows if that’s from previous shooting…….and looking at the vanes, the vanes on the right are set up with the nocking arrow being a different color………..where the other’s just a solid color making it easier and quicker to nock the arrow on the shaft with minimal attention to the shaft……..

    But then again, you may just be practicing with your hunting shafts using field points……and gave the options to confuse us [=}=] ](*,)

    I’m actually going to change my answer and say that you’re shooting no points but using just a non-tipped shaft…….(good luck digging out the layered foam stuck in your insert) :p ;)

    I don’t know about the picture……….but a 5″ change in your pins would not come from a speed difference strings I don’t think !! Seems like your nock point or anchor point would have to have changed to have that kind of a difference …….especially at close yardage 20-30 yrds !!

    Broadhead right, fieldpoint left. I would imagone the 5″ high you’re seeing is due to the nocking point a tad lower than the position on the previous string.

    i do know that the serving diameter is smaller, on the new string so the arrows come off easier/cleaner and im not going to complain about the impact change because i get to move my gang adjustments up now and increase my clearance, good luck and keep guessing

    i like nippers guess with the non tipped shafts, never know he may be the closest :whistle ](*,)
