    agreed. .340 min, i would go to a .300 if i were you . weight diff. between colors is just that. heavier slower... more momentum, lighter faster,. less momentum,

    im in agreement with a 300, if you drop to a 100 gr head the 340 should be fine

    Like everyone else said 300 with 125 grain head. Could do a 340 with a 100 grain head

    340------there is a very slight difference in weight from the camo to the black ones. Camo slighty higher in weight but honestly nothing you will notice.
    Have a good day and a better hunt

    I shoot Eastern Axis 340 using a 70 lb. draw with 100 grain heads and they fly great.

    I will agree with most but if you will drop to a 100 grain point, then the 340 will do fine.

    I shoot the 400 with a 125 grain head fixed blade. My draw is 28.5. I really like the setup and have had zero issues

    Answer is a mild Cam bow 340 will work just fine.

    300's Make sure you use broad head adaptors with them or you will end up with cracked shafts.

    Easton makes them for the Axis & they should supply them with the shafts as they are junk with out them.

    Not necessarily. I've shot axis and so hasn't my wife without issue. If you shoot a broad head that his either 1 piece or front replaceable blades your ok. If you shot mechs or heads like slick tricks you will probably want BAR

    Most mech are ok to shoot without the bar as long as you use a steel washer (usually supplied with the broadheads) between the shaft and head.

    340 axis would be great spine choice with the mild cam of the elite answer at your specs in my opinion

    Switch to a 100 grain point / broad head. Then if you're shooting mechs then get a shock collar. The Axis arrows will pass through any white tail out to 35 yards at that draw length/ weight. Use the 340 spine with the 100 gr tip.
