    You can go on the easton arrow chart for different arrows that will work for your setup. For a 65# dw you would want a 400 arrow, these are usually good for 55 to 70# or so, this is from easton. Other arrows will have the dw on the arrows, 3555, 5575 and so on. Still others will have a different numbering system than easton, 250, 300 and so on, with these the lower the number the lighter the arrow. Gets confusing but easy to usually read the chart on the different manufacturers. If you will be hunting I would go with at least 1/2" longer arrows than your dl to make sure your broadheads clear your riser.

    I good,all round hunting/3D arrow would,IMO,be smoewhere between 350-425grains total weight. Lighter arrow=more speed/less down range energy. Heavier arrow=less speed/more down range energy(kinetic energy). An arrow in the 350-425grains neighborhood is a good compromise. Stick your arrow in the vitals where it belongs and you won't have penetration issues.

    One BIG thing to keep in mind is the type of rest you have as well. If you are shooting a drop away, and fixed blade broadheads, then you will probably need a longer arrow than if you are aren't. Mistake I made with one batch of arrows was, I cut them to the length I had used before with mechanical heads, and then I switched to fixed blades. Drew back with the fixed blades, and the head was hitting the riser shelf before the drop away rest had lifted it enough. So now that batch of arrows is delegated to turkey hunting with mechanicals. lol

    Should be just fine then. Just make sure your arrows are about 1 inch longer than your draw. Safest way is to nock a full length arrow, draw it back, and have someone mark the arrow at the front of the rest. Then add an inch. As for the numbering system on arrows that Cyclepath mentioned, as the numbers increase, the spine weakens. A 300 spine is stiffer than a 400 spine. A 300 spine arrow will also weight MORE than a 400.
