Here's a simple way to find your FOC.

1. Balance your arrow, with broadhead, on your finger. Mark that balance point. Then, measure from the bottom of your nock groove to that mark. Write that number down.

2. Measure your shaft from the bottom of your nock to the insert. Divide by 2. Write that number down.

3. Subtract the divided arrow length from the balance point.

4. Multiply the resulting number by 100.

5. Divided that number by the total arrow length.

I'll use my arrow as an example.

Balance point: 18"
Arrow length: 28.5"/2=14.25"

18-14.25=3.75

3.75*100=375

375/28.5=13%

Heres another way of checking everything you want to know about your arrows and bow , a FPS calculator , an arrow weight calculater and a foc calculator www.backcountrybowhunting.com scroll down to the almost bottom of the page and you will see it , this should be very helpfull

I Think Checking Your Foc Is Smart. If That Comes Out Ok There Is No Reason In My Opinion To Go Any Heavier Than A 100 Grain Head. With The Speed Todays Bows Are Producing You Will Have All The Energy Needed To Get A Complete Pass Thru On About Every Animal You Would Hunt With A Bow. Fyi, I Just Tried Hellrazor 100 Heads And They Have The Best Flight I Have Ever Seen For A Fixed Blade.
