    Full Bores are MASSIVE. I mean HUGE. You definately won't miss the x!

    Also, you should really think about upping the weight on them arrows. You're about 41 grains under the minimum 5 grains per lb!

    Im shooting some 30x gt pros and they fly crazy good like I can shoot a bare shaft in same hole good. Id say if you could get your center shot perfect you can shoot whatever you want.

    yes.. fullbores are ok if you shoot low poundage or really want to screw around with tuning, lengths, etc

    The easton arrows will be easier to get to tune for sure since you can get them spine correct, but if your tune is good it wont matter!

    Xxx are great arrows but you don't want to shoot under 350 grns on a 70lb bow or it will void your warranty also it's not legal for IBO if you are shooting in that.

    I personally have shot both. If you are shooting 3d go with the fullbores they are max diameter but only 8.4gpi the XXX are over 9gpi. Fullbores are also great on indoor but like had been said i would go up in arrow weight I have worked as a bow tech and you are asking for trouble in all honestly. May never happen but better safe then sorry. If i were you i would shoot the fullbores with 125 or 150 nib. I switched for gt's they are great arrows but the light weight and line cutting ablilty of fullbores are unmatched.

    A friend of mine shoots Semi-Pro ASA and tried the FB's, but went back to the Fatboys. He was more consistent with them.

    Yep been a while, doing great.. Don't overlook the Magnums, the .350s are 7.4gpi.. I shot them for the first time in Augusta, and shot a PB +28up in Open B.. Really happy with Them right now.!
