    Default arrow selection

    i'm goofing off at work and want to run something up a flagpole and see if it flies lol With help of a co-worker measuring to the front of the riser i get 28 1/2 inches so i'll use 29 inch arrows. i'm going to go carbon and strictly shoot to go hunting. I want to use 110 grain muzzy broadheads. I figure at 6gr per pound with tip i should be using 400gr arrows is this correct? oh yeah the bow is 60lbs dw

    Basically don't worry about the weight...just shoot whatever 400 spine arrow you like. That is what will work for this weight and length.

    Well, most might go 1 inch front of the shelf, figure gloves, but should work.

    Or you could shoot something that pulls back almost to the rest if you are shooting any kind of capture rest. Weight of the arrow is not an issue for you. Almost any arrow with a 400 spine will be sufficiently heavy enough.

    Beman are good arrows. Made by Easton. You have to start somewhere. And a 400 spine is what I'd recommend for now.

    Bone Collector series (in anything) is nothing more than a cool little logo and an extra $10 or more to Michael Waddell. Basically, you are paying more money for no increase in performance or value.
