Anybody order a Centergy in the past couple months? How long did you wait? I was quoted 8-10 weeks by my dealer currently at 6weeks for a recon gray. Just getting anxious. The last question is a spine recommendation. Planning on shooting easton axis cut about 27.75(28 to the valley of the nock) with 50gr brass insert and 100gr tip @70lbs. Should I stay with 340s or go to 300s?

Probably 300 would be good with the 50gr inserts. 340 be a little weak I would think.

Sorry can comment on the lead time...

I ordered mine about end of may and had it within 2 weeks. For me I am shooting 28.5" draw at #70 using GT pro hunter 300's with 100 gr tip and acculite nocks cut to 28" from throat to shaft. For me these shot better then my 340's.

I think the 300's would be good especially sense your using 50gr inserts.

I ordered mine (65lb limbs in First Lite Fusion) on May 2nd and had it in my hands May 10th.

I would go with the 300?s. I was shooting BEA Spartan 350?s with 156gr up front including field point at 66lb 28? draw (28.5 AMO @ 85% letoff) cut to 27? carbon to carbon and they were a bit weak. Some people say Primes like weaker spined arrows but I think that mostly has to do with improper grip. You could always see how your current 340?s shoot before purchasing the 300?s. That?s probably what I would do

I've found my Centergy to be quite spine tolerant, myself. I'm shooting 27.5/60 and it shoots both FMJ 6mm 470's and BE Carnivore 400's quite well.

If you really want to know about spine you have to do a lot of testing... try 300's, try 340's, try 400's.... try more point weight, less point weight... longer shafts, shorter shafts... shoot them out at 40 or 50 yards and see which arrow groups better...

not on a Prime but Jesse Broadwater is shooting 520 spine X10's with 140 grains in the front... no chart in the world is going to call that arrow close to the correct spine on a 60# compound...
