    Default arrow shafts

    I have a MARTIN PROWLER (2005) and the draw wt is 67 with 30 inch draw, I have been shooting easton epic 400 carbon arrows but it was set at 63 pounds. when i went up to 67 pnds and took it to get paper tuned it will not stop tearing high. Do i need to switch to epic 340 arrows or what. the bow has the dyna cam also.

    Using 30" shafts and 100gr points (an assumption) you should be using 300's. If I had your shaft length and point weight you would know for sure but in any case your 400's aren't spined correctly.

    I was going to recommend 300 shafts, but I see it's already been done.

    One of the best places to research is the Easton shaft selector - you can find it here

    I agree with bfisher and dbd and say that i would recommend arrows with 300 spine.

    Once you paper tune then do some broadhead tuning. Paper is OK, but it's not fine tuning. Those blades will quickly show you many things you'll never see shooting through paper.

    Did I mention Easton's Tuning Guide? If not then get you a copy and use it.

    I shoot the 100 gr G5 montec broadheads, they shoot very good.
