Gidgee Sticks Carbon Fibre Arrow Shafts
BENEFITS OF ARROW HIGH FOC
Building an arrow with a high FOC(Foward of Centre) can greatly assist with arrow penetration and down stream arrow flight. Having the weight in the front of the arrow, means that the shaft is pulled through both the target and the air from the front rather than the rear of the shaft. When the arrow strikes the target, the inertia of the weight forward pulling the shaft through the target equates to minimal flex of the shaft as it enters, this will aid increasing arrow penetration. When an arrow has a lower FOC, ie lighter Inserts and Broadheads etc, the weight of the arrow shaft itself is what pushes the Broadhead through the target, This pushing action can cause more flex in the arrow. This extra flex in the arrow when it strikes the target, can increase the resistance because the arrow being bent out of shape, which in turn can reduce your penetration. In some cases, reduced penetration can greatly reduce your chances of recovering your Target Animal.
