Arrow Set Up

What are you people flinging?
 
Anyone shooting heavy or stiff arrows, or conversely, anyone shooting super speedy arrows?

    I lean towards the heavier side.  Never plan on shooting at a deer past 30 yds and I want good penetration when I do hit one.  Most of my stand sites have 20 to 25 max. shots due to how thick they are, even in the later season.

    Similar situation, everything I hunt in anymore is a jungle.  30.5" running the Easton 5MM FMJ, I am still shooting 100GR fixed (Not looking at the heavier/$$$ single bevel yet), but I am thinking about picking up some heavy inserts to try to gain some FOC.  Anybody try the inserts to gain some front end weight?

    Thunderpole,
     
    Did you start with a pack of different sized field points to see what worked the best with your bow?  I shoot right under 70 pounds, same spine (300).  This is something I should have been screwing with starting in March, but you know how it is.
