    Best arrow for alphamax

    I have a new Hoyt alphamax 32 . I just bought some carbon express mayhem hunter 350 arrows. My draw is 28 and the arrows are 27. Im pulling 68 lbs The total arrow weight is at 412 grains with tip. What type of kinetic energy and fps do you think I will get out of this setup? Is this about the correct arrow I should be using? Thanks for any and all comments!

    When i had my AM32 it was set at 68lbs and my dl was 28". I was shooting Easton Axis 400's cut to 26.5. They tuned great. I also shot them out of my Maxxis at the same setup.

    275fps-280fps if your tuned well and shooting the #2 cam
    70# KE give or take

    A .340 spine should work, i can not remeber how CE labels there shafts.

    My AM32 is set at 72 lbs 28" with the #3 cams, which I prefer, my Gold Tip Velocity arrows weigh 409 grains. It is shooting 297.

    AM 32 @ 70 lbs. 28.5" DL (#3 cam) = GT Velocity .300 spine
    AM 35 @ 62 lbs. 28.5" DL (#2 cam) = GT Velocity .400 spine

    As recommended by the "King of Arrows" himself, Jerry at South Shore Archery!

    I also asked Jerry if I dropped my AM 32 down to 60-62 lbs, if I would fall into a .400 spine like the AM 35? After entering the data into his computer program the answer was NO! For my DL & the #3 cam .300 was recommended.

    Hope this helps.

    I would say if your string has your typical set up on it as loop, kisser, peep sight etc. You should be around 272 to 274 ft per second and your kinetic energy will be right around 68lbs of kinetic energy.

    In regards to the arrow I would say your Carbon Express 350 is the correct spine for that setup. I shoot an Easton 400 Axis and the spine between the CE 350 and The Easton 400 are close to the same. Perfect for hunting.

    Nice Setup.

    Thank you!

    The Alphamax is such a great performing bow. Since it was new in 2009.... it's "old news." So silly! LOL

    1/2" won't gain you much, 2-3 fps.

    i would say more along the lines of 1-2fps. 1/2" on a 9gpi arrow is only 4.5g, gain or lose 1fps/3g you probably wouldn't notice any difference till you get past 40 or 50 yards depending on fp weight and change in foc for a differenct poi from one arrow to another.
