Increased # effect on trajectory?
I increased my poundage from 56# to 64# on my Maxxis 31. Seems this is going to drive a sight tape change on my CBE Hybrid TEK 3 pin slider sight. Still huntable at 0-35 with floating top pin matched to 30yds on the sight tape. Beyond that it looks like the sight tape over-compensates for arrow drop and at 40 yds its gonna be unacceptably high impact point.
Is it reasonable that a relatively small poundage change (8#) would affect trajectory that much? I'm shooting a 28" ICS hunter 400 with Nockturnals and 100 grain points and 2" vanes.
I sort of hate to start the whole sight tape selection process over but maybe that is what needs to happen.
Sounds like with your setup, that’s indeed what happened.
8 lbs is what % of 56 lbs.....that`s not that small.
