Arrow Performance

Probably one the most asked question for new crossbow hunters is "what arrow should I use with my bow?". We recently tested all our crossbows with the arrows and tip combinations we offer to determine the arrow speed and kinetic energy. The charts below are the results of our testing. As a yard stick keep in mind you need about 30 ft. lbs to completely penetrate a deer and about 50 ft. lbs. for moose. We hope this helps with your arrow decision process
