With both my bows im on the border line as far as spine goes,im using gold tip 5575,not getting the best flight as i did with my slower firecat tr1 bow i had,so i was wondering what other arrows you people are using and how you like them,thanks.

Harvest Time HT-2 Vengeance. AMAZING! $69/dz for finished shafts. Check the Ranting Reviews section for more details. Search them on AT. Tons of reviews there.

I am shooting what seems like the exact same thing you are and I am getting accuracy. I am sure it could be better as all things can but I am in the new stages so I figure things will tighten up with that as well. As it is 95% of my shots are hitting the kill zone and I have shot close to 400 arrows this week. What are your arrows doing specifically that you don't like. Mine very well may be doing the same things and I just don't know what to look for.

i use gt prohunter 7595,i uses them when i had to turn my bow down to 55# and i used them when my bows is at 73#.i seen no differance besided moving moving my sight.from the pics i seen on carbon arrows breaking and what it did to peoples hands i will shoot a bit over spine to be safe.as long as im in the kill zone out to 50 yards im good.and i shoot up to but not limited to 100 yards.i have shot 130 somthing befor and went way over my target.100 g tips is what im useing right now but im going in today to get 125 feild tip to see what might change

I have used Lightspeed 400's for years, until I got my Shadowcat.

Despite being the same draw weight as my Constitution, at around 60 lbs, it does not work well with 400 spine arrows. Fortunately I had some Sky Art Carbon 340's which work really well. I tried the Cat with Lightspeed 340's, which are OK, but they don't fly as well as the Sky Art shafts.

I use 80 grain points, Easton nocks and am currently experimenting with fletchings and leaning towards 3" feathers.

Im hitting the kill zone but it seems like one out of 3 hit the x,now im shooting these out of the AX around 64# which is kinda the cut off for the 5575 to the next higher splined arrow.
Ill have to do some testing i might drop the weight down to see if there's a improvement.

I am shooting 5575 at 70# draw weight. With the 100 grain broad head these were exactly what was recommended to me by my shop. What do you mean by cut off?

Try rotating your nocks 180 degrees, and see if that helps.He's right if you turn your nocks 180 degrees or if you have a drop away turn the nock a little at a time. It is called nock tuning and we do it all the time in the Super Shooter. We have taken Many arrows new or used and shot them out of our machine. We have found that you might have 4 arrows hit next to each other, and 2 arrows hit left or right or hi or low. Once we have adjusted them they come closer to the 4. Then we adjust the 4 and in the end all are in a 50 cent piece size circle

I'm shooting GT Velocity Hunter 400s right now. When I got them, I did a mini-paper tune to check flight, also indexed (turned/rotated cock vane) the nocks if I wasn't getting good tears until I got consistent results with all the shafts. So far I have to say that I have really been pleased with these arrows and my Cheetah. I picked them up for $64 fletched/shipped. If these continue to perform well throughout the rest of the summer and perform well in the field giving me the penetration that I need - I'll look at picking up the XTs for next year. If not, I might give the Kinetics a whirl.

Plan on shooting 100grain G5 T3 - right now with pre-season blades, they are dead nuts out to 30-40. Haven't had a chance to shoot beyond that yet. Hopefully next weekend.
