    Mac user - can't run OT2 =(

    Curious about checking what this might say about my current set up. I think someone ran numbers for me once before and I was a toward the weak end with what I gave him to plug in. Thinking about getting some new arrows at the end of the season, my GT Velocity are running low - been looking into HT2 in their 350 to give me a touch more spine without having to jump to the 300 and be way over.

    @ RLW thanks for all that great info. I dropped my weight all the way to 53# without knowing it until I took it in to be reset to 65# after installing the new strings. It had had a slight left kick since I started shooting it last January. I have turned the nocks with the cock vane out now and am going to check fletch clearance again. According to QAD if the rest is timed right even though they recommend up as it has been it should shoot no matter which way the vanes are. Not a speed freak since my hunting shots are no further than 30 yds and normally under 20. Anyway am going to try the 340 spine and see what happens at 29" per GT should be right on as well. Going to go back to square one on tuning and see how it all works out. Winter is long up here, lol.

    Be careful, going to a longer shaft effectively weakens arrow too.......and you'll lose about 3-4fps vs the 27.5".
    It will be stiffer than the 55/75 and should still be fine, but just wanted to make note of it.

    @ RLW only reason I was looking at the 29" was it corresponds with GT chart for my set up. Still gotta see. If I can get the 55/75 to tune will stay with them and with the 75/95 at that length could be easier to give a deal to someone when they have room to shorten them.
