If you are only shooting 3D for fun, a great time out with friends and buddies, and a way to get ready for hunting, then by all means keep shooting the arrows you hunt with, and the bow set up to hunt. When November roles around and that buck is at 30 yds, you will draw, aim, and shoot with confidence.
If you are looking to compete in 3D for money or prizes, then you need to look at your wallet first and see how much you want to spend. Then look for an arrow that will maximize your scoring, and still be spined correctly for your setup, and possibly increase your speed in order to minimize the arrow drop over distance. That's given you don't want to invest in a different bow, site, or move into one of the open classes, with stabilizers, scopes, lights, lenses, etc. Then you better get long arms and short pockets, because there is little you will buy that can be transferred to a hunting setup.
There is nothing wrong with the arrows you are using to hunt with. As long as you can get them cut to your length, and all the components you need, stay with them.
