22" will be heavier that the 20's, and heavier won't give you a flatter trajectory. Lighter arrows shoot flatter.... maybe heavier will stabilize the flight characteristics somewhat.

TYE,

Tye, I've been using the Arizona 4 degree on my bolts for 14 years and Fletch-tite on the vanes or feathers. You can't go wrong with that setup.

Clean is good....I keep scent free comfortable clothing for the 1.2 hour drive to my hunting area. Once there I change into my scent free hunting clothing. I prefer a 2x2 carpet piece to stand on in the field while changing.
