    You can get the GoldTip Ultralight with a spine of .300, .400, .500 and i believe also .600.

    How long is an arrow with 261/2"? I do not believe that you shoot 130.5" arrows...

    Ooops...


    RogerSr, do you already have a set of GT Ultralight Pro 22 or do you want to get them?

    That could make the FOC less than ideal for one...

    I personally make all my arrows spine right wild the poundage in the bow. If it gets too low or high for what I want' I'll play with arrow length, and stuff, but never point weight unless I want to change the FOC of the arrow.

    Roger,

    We have virtually the same specs--draw length and weight. My arrows are 27" w/80gr Nibbs.

    The 22 series is a 300 spine so will be a whole lot stiff, but I get them to fly. Just don't tune that well.

    Right now I'm shooting the GT UL-500 and they are stiff. That's with 80gr Nibbs and/or inserts and 65gr Saunders screw-ins. Best bet for speed in a Gold Tip is the UL-600 or any other 600 spine.
