According to heavy arrow advocates, what is the ideal weight for an arrow?

The heavier the arrow and broadhead, the slower it will travel, but the more momentum it will carry into the target. The greater the momentum, the greater the likelihood of a full passthrough. And a full passthough should be the goal of any hunter as it increases the likelihood of a successful and ethical harvest.

Realistically, the limiting factor is the minimum speed that results in a trajectory you are comfortable with.

“You should always use the heaviest arrow possible that has a trajectory that you still find acceptable.” – Dr. Ed Ashby
