i would go with an 85 grain tip, and then use an 85 grain Slick Trick broadhead, and we need to know what is all on your bow string, draw length, what kind of arrow, etc. etc.

i have terminator-carbon express arrows,26in draw , and 35-50 pound draw weight, my string will have the silencers that come with the bare bow , kisser, 2 nock points to put my arrow nock in between, circle peep sight
also what should my arrow length be under these conditions and probably 40-45 pound draw, and 26inch draw length an possibly less or more poundage or draw length(35-50 pounds).

Arrow length depends on the stiffness of the arrow. Give us the spine deflection, and maybe we can help.
I'd go with a 100 or 125 gr. tip. too light a tip will result in the foc being too low, making it harder for the fletches to steer the arrow properly. this is especially importannt if you use heavy fletches or an arrow wrap.

not sure, but it is very stiff, and not very flexible, spine in not marked.

Definitely use a fix blade b/head.
