  2. Easton Hexx Spine

    General Archery Discussion
    I shoot a Vertix 29.5” DL 65# and am interested in the Easton hexx arrows. I’ve played around with the OT2 software and am having a hard time deciding on which spine to choose. Both of these images are with a 29” arrow because my local bow shop says he wouldn’t go lower than .5” below my DL(I’d...

    Traditional Archery
    Hi, I am new here and just getting into archery, so I am going to be asking some pretty stupid questions. Right now I am struggling with the whole 'spine' issue.

    I'm a 56 year old female and I'm getting back into archery after a few years away. In 2017 I purchased a Hoyt Horizon Pro 25 inch riser with SF Axiom Plus short 24 lb limbs. Shortly after purchasing the bow I injured by shoulder in a non-archery incident. Now that I'm getting back into it I'm...

  12. High FOC Arrow Build for 50lb Compound Experience?

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    I'm hoping to capitalize on some real-world experience with hunters using 50-55lb compound bows drawing 29" (give or take 0.5"). I'm always happy to experiment, but this stuff gets expensive and I would like to potentially save some money on an upcoming arrow build. I've been shooting arrows...

  14. Am I underspined?

    Arrows & Strings
    About to build some axis 300s will I be underspined? Mathews HTR no cam at 29.5 and 70# Arrows are 11.5 gpi, 28.5 inches planning to put hit 16 grain inserts and 125 grain points. Here’s where it gets fishy. I want to use some stainless tubing to make a 1 inch footer at about 100 grains. That...

    Hello. This is my first post on Archery Talk, and have a few questions with perhaps a longer answers... My questions: Are stiffer spine arrows safe to use with a lower draw weight compound? How does a stiffer spine affect accuracy on a lower poundage bow? How does a stiffer spine affect...

  18. 340 or 400 Spine FMJ?

    General Archery Discussion
    So my buddy is asking my opinion regarding what spine FMJ he should shoot. He's kind of right in the middle on the charts, He shoots a 65 Lb / 27 inch Triax. I told him from my very modest arrow spinning experience to err on the side of caution and let's ask the some of the pros. I think he...

    General Archery Discussion
    I just bought an Xcentric 6 at 65 lbs and it’s a good deal faster than my previous bow, which was also at 65 lbs. I shoot 28.5” black eagle zombie slayers because that’s what my small local shop carries. They are 350 spine and my concistency with them isn’t good with the new bow. It’s the right...
