    It depends. What is your draw length? What type of practice are you going to be doing? What are you going to be using the bow for?

    Practice Arrows

    Not trying to be blunt, but you practice with the arrows you are going to use. At 40 pounds of draw weight you'd fit in the Youth section of arrows in Lancaster's catalog. They have a wide selection and are inexpensive. Beman Junior Hunters may fit your need. You can go on line www.lancasters.com
    Pearson MarXman, Limb Driver, Muddy Virtue HT3s, Bohning vanes, Sure Loc Challenger,
    Super Ball Peep, Stanislawski MagMicro Trio, Onyx, Blackjack and TRU Ball ST360, 30" Cartel.

    If you are going to be shooting 3-D I would look into the Easton Light Speed's in a 500. You should probably shoot something in the 600 spine range but should be ok at 500. The trouble is you need to shoot as light of an arrow as possible for 3-D to help keep your speed up. In hunting you want a heavier arrow for more kinetic energy. You may have to shoot two different arrows.

    Maybe someone will chime in who knows more about what other mfg's have to offer in a light spined arrow.

    GoldTip offers the Ultralight in a 600 spine... click here for the link
    I took the liberty of building you an arrow on their tool, here it is...
    Ultralight 600, 26 inches.
    Vanetec Vmaxx SS 2.3", Gray / Flo Green
    GT Series Nock .246 White
    Glue-In Point 80 Grain
    Shaft Weight: 148.2 grains
    Fletching: 10.8 grains / Nock: 11 grains / Tip: 80 grains
    -----------------------------------------------------
    Total Weight: 250 grains (6.25 grains/pound)
    Front of Center Balance: 11.71 %

    You can get a 35grn or 50grn points but the FOC% is way too low. This arrow will be nice and stable and should get a decent speed out of your Passion.

    Shoot me a PM if you have any other questions... You planning to shoot any Texas ASA in 2010?
    Best of luck,
