    Default Gold Tip XT Hunter 5575 with 100 Grain Rage

    I am shooting what seems like the exact same thing you are and I am getting accuracy. I am sure it could be better as all things can but I am in the new stages so I figure things will tighten up with that as well. As it is 95% of my shots are hitting the kill zone and I have shot close to 400 arrows this week. What are your arrows doing specifically that you don't like. Mine very well may be doing the same things and I just don't know what to look for.

    I have used Lightspeed 400's for years, until I got my Shadowcat.

    Despite being the same draw weight as my Constitution, at around 60 lbs, it does not work well with 400 spine arrows. Fortunately I had some Sky Art Carbon 340's which work really well. I tried the Cat with Lightspeed 340's, which are OK, but they don't fly as well as the Sky Art shafts.

    I use 80 grain points, Easton nocks and am currently experimenting with fletchings and leaning towards 3" feathers.

    Im hitting the kill zone but it seems like one out of 3 hit the x,now im shooting these out of the AX around 64# which is kinda the cut off for the 5575 to the next higher splined arrow.
    Ill have to do some testing i might drop the weight down to see if there's a improvement.

    Default 5575 cut off?

    I am shooting 5575 at 70# draw weight. With the 100 grain broad head these were exactly what was recommended to me by my shop. What do you mean by cut off?

    Try rotating your nocks 180 degrees, and see if that helps.
