when I bought my arrows, they were marked down at walley world. CE terminators I believe.
problem is, the only had 5 left in the 55-70. and 5 left in the 45-60. and then i still had my 5 blackhawk vapor 65-80. and 5 easton carbon storm 60-75.
notice a trend. 4 different types of arrows, 5 of each.
now that i'm shooting well, and getting great groups. i'm really noticing how different each group flies.
i dialed my bow in, using the terminator 55-70's. and get a nice tight 2-3" group at 20 yards. and a 4-5" group at 38 yards.
matter of fact, i get the same type of grouping with all the arrows. difference being.... the terminator 55-70 will be dead center.
the terminator 45-60 will be about 2" high and 2" right.
the eastons will be about 2" high and 2" left.
and the vapors will be about 2" left and center.
so, no big deal if I only use the 55-70. but then I'm walking back and forth every 5 arrows.
it'd be nice to have a dozen arrows that all fly relatively the same.
that said, I'm looking at these DCA hunters. bare shaft with insert and nock. I have my field points, and I fletch my own now too.
at under 60 bucks, it would seem I can't go wrong..
but.... which ones to choose.
my martin, which has become my bow of choice, is 45-60 and I currently have it at about 55lbs.
my bowtech, which rarely gets used now, and i may or may not keep as a backup, or just sell it, is 60-70 and currently set at 60.
my shafts are 25.5" carbon to carbon.
right now, all i shoot is bag target in the back yard or range. HOPING to get out and shoot some deer, but obviously that isn't until september.
Im shootin the 300 spine at 60lbs and 28.5 shafts shootin good
Without looking up the charts specifically, I would guess that they would direct you to the 400 spines... at your max of 60# and your shorter draw they would be just fine. You could go with the 350's if you wanted, but spine-wise they'd be a little stiff. Of course, if you're gonna hunt with them, the 350's are also heavier and would add some to your overall kinetic energy... but not really needed. Remember Uncle Ted (and many other hunters) hunt with only 50# and kill lots of animals, many times with clean pass throughs... ;)
Oh, and a shorter arrow is also stiffer than a longer arrow of the same spine, just FYI...
I meant Im shootin 350 spines 7.9 grains per inch at 60lbs I would say with your setup go with the 400 or 350 spine.

I shoot the 300 as I pull 70 lbs and really wanted the weight. Best fit for me is 28" with insert and blazers with a 4" wrap they weight in at 400g. Hitting 288-294 with all my bow and the DCAs . I think 400g is a good fit for big game here in AZ as I have the speed and not giving up penetration. I do also shoot CX Max Hunter also as the weight the same with a small diameter shaft . Big difference between $70 and $160 per dozen. I do shoot the .003.
Ive been shootin the 350 spines at mid 50 to 60 lb range flyin like darts and seem to be the same speed as my goldtip 75/95 at 70lbs need a chrono to tell for sure I have dropped my draw weight 10lbs or so and Ive been shootn better groups I think my 70lb days r over just cant shoot as consistent as I can at 60lbs.
So I decided to put some carbon 1m limbs on my snow cougar should be around 50 to 52 lbs and was shoot in at 30 yards in a 10 to 15 mph cross wind and got a robin hood the first with the DCA arrows have a few more think this is about my tenth since I started archery
