    If they are similar to Eastons 2216's, I had no problems shooting them through a old 70# Browning. Not the fastest bow out there, but was decent for the time. Around 240 fps. Looked, and I still have at least a dozen of them myself. lol

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    At 26 3/4" they wont be far off, a .340" suits a modern 65# to 30" so they should work. If underspined you can use carbon inserts to decrease point weight and stiffen them up a bit. Really you need to shoot them and see.

    I'd shoot them no worries.

    Not bad with what is considered today as a heavy arrow.
