Ok so I'm thinking of trying some new arrows, the Easton Flatlines have really caught my eye and I was wondering if the 400 spine is too small for my bow which is maxed at 72# if it is I'm fine with going with the 360 spine...also what kind of weight would I be getting if I got a 28" arrow in 360 spine with a 100 grain point? Thanks, jake

Jake, tha Easton Flatline don't come in 360 spine they have a 340, at 28" just the shaft will weigh 229.6 Gr. and the 400 shafts will weigh 207.2 Gr.
that is just the shafts so you add the point and nock and insert and vanes,
I'll leave that to you, becouse I don't know what kind you will be using.

I would guess @ 28" the 400 would be around 330-335gr and the 340 would be 360-365gr. I have 400s cut to 27.5" blazers, microlight nocks and inserts that come with them, and 85gr fp. they weigh 325 on the nose.

At your specs I would not recommend a 400 spine. Just too light a spine. 340 would be a better fit and depending on such things as point weight, cam style and such a 300 might be more advisable.

my bad i meant the 340 spine, my mistake, but im trying to stay over the 5gr./lb rule, but not too much, so with my bow at 70-72# im looking for a 365-370 gr. arrow
