      I'm shooting PSE EVO EVL 34, 31" DL, 70lbs limbs. It measures about 72lbs, runs a little hot I guess. Cut my arrows to 30.5" carbon to carbon. With those specs I believe I need 250 spine arrow.
      I was getting very cheap ($40 per dozen, nameless carbon pre-fletched, 32" uncut) SP250 arrows from Amazon but it is not available any more. I shoot for fun, trying hunting and just learning, love shooting outside and long distances so I break and loose quite a few arrows. I think those cheap arrows were fine for me, not my limiting factor. I put 125 point or broadhead, lighted nock sometimes, no other modifications. It comes to 490 gran arrows that and fly good. Tried to hand glue few vanes instead of damaged and quickly learned that than they fly like crap, even small problem with vane seems to have HUGE impact. Got a fletching jig, playing with different helix, this fixes the problem.
      So, I'm searching for new arrows. I do not want to separate my "target" and "hunting" arrows, I just swap tips and do not want to re-tune the bow or change tapes.
      It looks like I have few options:
      1. Get better (more expensive) arrows. Looking around it appears that event 2x the price still considered very cheap and I really can not find anything SP250 under $100 per dozen shipped. Maybe I did not search enough so I'll appreciate all help.
      2. Get some very cheap shafts or arrows from ebay. There seems to be enough 250 options around $40 per dozen for the bareshafts shipped from China.
      3. Try to cut arrows shorter and go with 300? Selection seems to be better for that spine. I do not think it is right way to go, especially considering broadheads. Lowering poundage also does not seem to be the best option, I have no issues with 72 so why give up speed?
      4. Get something at $200 per dozen and finally understand what good arrows are?
      I know nothing about these, but a quick Amazon search of “250 spine arrow shafts” showed these a couple options down. I’ve heard of the Accmos brand but nothing other than they are a cheap China variant of arrow, nothing good but nothing bad either. Looks like you can get them precut, but if you went with these it would probably be best if you got full length and cut them yourself.




      Another option or two would be the Easton 6.5 Acu-Carbons like previously mentioned. You can get those for ~$34.99/6-pack pre-fletched. Or the Victory VForce Gamer or Sports, whichever is their .006, can be had for about $74 per dozen bareshafts. These are a bit more expensive than the Chinese arrows from Amazon but they come from a reputable company so it’s up to you what you want.

      Thanks a lot, for some reason I did not see them at Amazon....
      Looks like there are plenty of options and I have a saw and fletching jig so I can just experiment with different stuff.
