In washington your arrow has to be atleast 6 grains per pound of draw weight so my arrow is about 20 grains short of my targeted 6 grains per pound of draw weight..

I plan on shooting the crossbow tomorrow to see how the luminoks fly. Sad but my Diamond bow sits in its case. I do take it on my trips just in case.....
