I've got some Carbon Express Aluminum arrows in 2216 at 26.75"L. any idea what spine they would be. Ive got a couple dozen. thinking i could use them for small game in a couple weeks.

Similar to easton's 2216's I would think, 0.375".

If they are similar to Eastons 2216's, I had no problems shooting them through a old 70# Browning. Not the fastest bow out there, but was decent for the time. Around 240 fps. Looked, and I still have at least a dozen of them myself. lol

At 26 3/4" they wont be far off, a .340" suits a modern 65# to 30" so they should work. If underspined you can use carbon inserts to decrease point weight and stiffen them up a bit. Really you need to shoot them and see.

I'd shoot them no worries. :)

Not bad with what is considered today as a heavy arrow.

Will you have to change nock placement or rest setting using a fat aluminum arrow on a bow set for skinny carbon arrows?
