Wish Gold Tipís chart would tell folks that instead of what they do .
Iíve always shot 2016ís but at a higher poundage. With heavy points and with a little tuning on the bow , Iíve been able to group pretty decent with my old faithfuls .
The aluminum shafts I have on order are 1816ís . I plan on leaving them at their full length of 30Ē and play with point weights .
Wish I could at least handle 40# , I would stay with the 2016ís .
I donít plan on shooting much past 25-30 yards and have been doing pretty good at those ranges with the 2016ís , on my good days.
