    ACG arrows

    I have a set of (12) ACGs on the way.
    My arrows (xx75 Genesis) were getting to 60 yards okay and with decent accuracy but at 80 yards they were falling well short - aimed well above the target and got a few gold and several reds (only one miss) but that's not ideal.

    So I have ordered a set of ACGs and REALLY hope they'll help as they weren't cheap!

    The bow is a Hoyt Ignite set to 50lbs. Might upgrade soonish but not yet sure to what.

    I hope your new arrows do what you need. A friend at my club upgraded to ACC's and they've changed all his sight marks, he's dialling his sights back in and then making the move to 80 yards.

    I was going to upgrade to ACC's, but I've decided to put the money towards a longbow instead. I have to reverse the sight for 80yds, and I'm aiming with the end of the longrod at 100 with xx75's.

    My first set of carbons were a set of AC Navigators, the fore runner to the ACG. Difference was night and day from xx75's. Since then I have upgraded to ACE's and use the Navigators indoors, though i'm now considering X10's to beat the wind drift...
    I have no doubt you will be shooting 100yds quite happily at 50lb with the ACG's.

    you will have no problem.

    I was hitting 80yards with ACCs quite comfortably, and at the time my bow was set to about 45lb. have since upped it to 50lb and swapped to ACEs ( If the compound doesent sell, I may go back to the ACCs and sell the ACEs - I read some where that somebody was arguing not to use barrelled shafts on a compound)

    Utterly brilliant! Had a fair few sighting ends (never shot that far except once by guesswork) which didn't help the scores but once I did, it was great. 80 yards is now well within sight range, 60 was no problem. Did a Long National and got 440.

    Not exactly special but for less than 5 months and a "beginners" bow I was well pleased. If I can eliminate those sighting adjustment ends I should be much better.

    Oh and it was also darned good fun!
