I want to pick up some carbon arrows but don't know what spine. I shoot an 30 year old round cam bow at 70 pounds and use a 30" arrow. Can anyone help this old guy figure out the arrow spine?
Thank you,
Bob

Normally, with today's harder cams this would call for a 300 spine, but with the older cams you could probably shoot a 340 spine.

GD, don't lead the poor man astray. If referring to Gold Tip arrows the 5575 is a 400 spine. IMO this would be a bit on the limber side, even with the old round wheels. My old pea brain is telling me a 340 spine or if Gold Tip the 7595 shaft.

@ GD your not supposed to take it out and play with it...lol

@ Uncle Bob.. it is going to be tough to pick off a chart since it is wheels that are on your bow and not a cam.. all charts are soft cam or single/ hardcam.
This makes me think you will want something from the soft cam and may get away with softer then it shows .. you should be some where on top end of a 400 and low end on a 340 with a 100 gr tip... now if the 340 was too stiff one could always use 125 gr tip....best of luck to you perhaps you can try a few out at a local pro shop

I went out and picked up some 7595's and wow! They fly soo much better than my aluminum arrows and they are a blurr! I also went from fingers to a release.
My first shot totally missed my target. In about ten minute I was right on. :0)
Thank you BFisher.

Carbon arrow quite a bit lighter than your old aluminums?

I have my target backed up against my wood pile and the first shot was high right and into a log. I had to split the log to get the arrow out and it looks fine. With the gold tips and the release I don't think I'll ever get rid of my old Cougar.
