Re: Arrows?

They may be too light of an arrow, with those specs you should be shooting either a 340 or a 300 shaft but as long as the total weight of the arrow is over the minimum recommended arrow weight for the bow you will be fine, I believe it is 350 grains but don't quote me on that.

Re: Arrows?

I don't really think they are too light. My arrows are 8.4 gr's per inch, and I shoot 70#'s.

Your best bet would be to look up there website, and look at the chart.

Or you could try them, and hope for the best. BTW, that is bad advise.

Re: Arrows?

The minimum grain (general rule of thumb) is roughly 5 grains per pound of pull. therefore 350 or more grain arrows would be what you want to shoot out of this bow. That is a number that is used to not damage the bow by allowing the arrow to absorbe the energy. this has nothing to do with how they will shoot out of your bow for accuracy.

The 400 is spine (amount the arrow will flex).

All and all I think you will be ok with these arrows. I shoot a 31" arrow with 100 grain heads. its an Easton Axis full metal jacket 400 spine at 9.9 gpi and they shoot great.

have at it.

Your just jealous because I've been chatting online with babes all day!!

Re: Arrows?

i dont know about the axis...i know the Epic shafts ran light on spine...the 400s were pretty under spined for me shooting 70lbs and 28 or 29" shafts...i had to drop my weight and trim my shafts so they just cleared my rest just to make them fall into the spine range so i didnt have to trash a whole dozen shafts...

shooting under spined arrows will lead to major tuning and arrow flight issues...might be un-noticed with fieldpoints...but throw on a fixed broadhead and you'll likely never get it to tune...

and shooting really under spined arrows can probably blow up upon release as they arent stiff enough to take the force...not saying yours are THAT under spined..i dont know...but its possible...and if axis runs like epics, you'll be underspined without cutting them down short and dropping the weight...

Re: Arrows?

Yeah... I am just not going to shoot them. I don't want to risk it. My neighbor shoot 60lbs so I'll give them to him.
Thanks for the input.
