    Absolutely no bow elitism; everyone was admiring all types of bows and my green Mybo received a few nice comments.

    Get the brightest vanes possible; they do bounce off occasionally. My son got an inner kill that bounced and it had to be scored a 16 instead of a 24!
    A witnessed bounce back on the inner is still a 24 unless someone in the group disagrees - then claim the 16. A bounce into the inner via a Barnes Wallis or deflection is always a 24 because that's where it stuck never mind how it got there.

    I currently use Easton ACG with a compound bow @ 50lbs, which are great at distances over 70m, but being very thin they go a long way into the target. I shot one at 20M and it went in right to the Fletching. Whilst I can double boss in target archery this is not an option in 3D, and if I hit a tree I think the chance of getting the arrow back undamaged is not likely.

    I've also got some old Easton XX75 which can be extracted OK, but are so thick compared to the ACGs that they tend to fall off the arrow rest.

    So I'm looking for a bit of a compromise, thicker than an ACG, but thinner than a XX75, and fairly accurate & durable.

    I'm considering options like ACC, or even FMJ (I assume the outer casing of aluminium would protect them a bit).

    What are your opinions for the best way forward?

    Thanks
