Going to need a new dozen new bolts for this year, who is shooting what? I didn't care for the FMJ bolts I had last year and then shot some inexpensive bolts this past fall and really saw little difference. Not sure what I will purchase so what bolts are your favorite?

HM,
Are you looking for the "heavier" bolts or what. I told a guy that I used FMJ's and he asked if i was shooting cape buffalo. So from that I assumed that they were pretty heavy duty. I too will be making a trip to Lancaster Archery and I will let you know what I find. I do know that shooting full graphite at my local pro shop makes me have to use two hands and my foot on the target to get them out, the FMJ's came out much easier.
Are you leaning toward a particular type or weight of arrow?
I like shooting the illuminated nocks with a 125 gr point?

The FMJ bolts dented everytime they hit something. The carbons shattered. I shoot 100 gr Muzzy's.

I missed a 8pter this year and sunk the arrow almost 2" past the BH in a tree and it didn't break.

Well I guess I'm going to try some full carbon arrows and I'll just have to have my hernias fixed when i pull them from the target.
