First, Thanks TIMO, for postin the pics!  It's nice to have guys who'll help us old farts who are techo-challenged!  :)

F.O.M,

I can't answer the flight question just yet... Im stumped on what the heck to use for a target to do my bareshaft and fletched testing ala OL Adcock's web site instructions!   :D  

I kept thinkin about having to drill a really straight and true hole in the end of a chundo shaft to get them wingnuts to not be misaligned and then I saw this thing for $.55 each and couldn't resist.  

Like i posted earlier, this gismo weighed right at 118-120 gr avg. while the 3/8-16 nuts weighed 110.  With the additional cost and weight of the wingnuts, the drillin the end of the shaft, i figurd w/ me normally shooting 125 gr. I'd get closer with the pictured head.  

Now... how AM I gonna test them?  These chundo are new to me!  Course, I could have them tuned PERFECT and still don't know if I will get close to many/any squirrels on George Stoudts PA Squirrel Hunt in Feb!  They seem to get a wee bit skittish after months of being hunted and guys trampin the woods since early Oct!   :)
The words "Child" and "terminal illness" should never share the same sentence! Those who care-do, others question!

I have some Zwicky Deltas that I cut 1/2"off the tip and created a cheisel point which penetrates skin and bone very well, however if you stick one in a tree  the nature of the point wont allow alot of penetration and can usually be swatted out  with a stick.  DennyK
