The victory HV arrows have been nothing but wonderful for me. I use the 400 spine, out of my scepter at 54.3 # they are just perfect. I also tend to have my arrows cut longer my DL is 29.5 and I have them cut at 31". I figured that would give me a bit of leeway if I needed to stiffen them up a bit I can always shorten them afterwards. Haven't had the need to do that though, the spine seems perfect for my setup.
My only complaint would be that given their lightness, they aren't as forgiving when you miss the target. They will break where my excel's used to survive. Still won't change brands until I have to!
Got to shoot at 30 yards today ... not liking what I'm seein' :mad:, I have about a 4-6 inch drift to the left, with the Carbon express Devils Wrath arrows, the box says for 50-60 pound bow so I'm guessing that a stiffer spine is needed. threw an xx75 aluminum game getter in the mix and it dropped right in where the pin was.
The Carbons have about a 2 degree right helical on them so I would expect right drift if anything. would to weak of a spine cause it to drift left or right??? :confused:
So I'm going to just use these for plinking, and building my arms and shoulder, what i don't know is for a bow that is shooting 65-70 pounds which gold tip shaft do I want to get and should I get the ones from wally world with the blazers on them, it's 65 bucks for 12, and have inserts
At 65-70# and 31" long I'd say with certainty that a 400 shaft is underspined. I'd go with a 300 spine without a doubt. If you like a 22 diameter like the aluminum then Gold Tip has an Ultralite 22 series that is a 300 spine and comes in at 7.3 gpi to help maximize speed. They also make a standard size carbon called the Ultralite 300 or the Velocity 300 at 8.5 gpi. If money is an issue then try the Ultralite Entrada.
I agree you are under spined 300's will put you where you need to be

If I can get a few more atta boys from work I'll be able to get the gold tips, from Cabelas but I'll look into the ultralights
Yes 300 is stiffer than a 400 shaft, hope you get some were I work it takes 99 at a boy to get a rise but take one oh s?*t to wipe them out
