I am waiting for my Allegiance to show up like many others. Was wondering if those who have shot it so far are seeing spine chart working as the listed? I will be shooting a 30" draw, 65-70lbs, and I think around a 29.5-30" arrow. Have been looking at the GT XT's and wondering if the 55/75 will work or should I bump up to the 75/95's. With my set up I am right in the middle of both sizes on the GT chart???
Thanks,
Jeff

I am shooting the same setup and went with the 7595's. Seems to be working great for me, but I shoot at 70 pounds

The 55/75's are way underspined for your setup. Rememeber there is alot of 80# bows that does not have the energy your Allegiance is going to have.

I shot 5575s for the first month I had my Allegiance. Switched to the 7595 and have gotten more consistancy in my groups. I was shooting with a guy on Saturday that had a 5575 blow up on him. No one hurt fortunately. Proshop stands by the 5575 being the right spine for him but I disagreed and made my opinion known. 7595s!

That's a very important point, modern bows (and strings) push an arrow much harder than older ones and the charts do not reflect it.

An even stiifer arrow than the 7595 wouldn't be out of range at 70#, 30".
