I kinda know about grains and wight but want to know about spine stuff and so forth. I have only bought arrows once befor and it said somthing like 3050?? I would like to know what that # means. Maybe you guys( And gals) could help me out with what arrow wight I should get for a martin cheetah, 27.5 to 28 inch DL, at 50 to 60 lbs, I will be using it for hunting and some 3D now and again..... So all advice is apprecated!

The field tip weight and your broad head weight should be the same so that your practice arrows and hunting arrows fly as close to the same as possible, but at 50 to 60# ide stick with a 100gr field tip/broad head...

Not really its just that the Epics will save you a few bucks, but the Axis are higher quality...If it were me buying Ide go with the Axis...

So 2 inch vanes work better than 4 inch, I though it was the other way around when it comes to broadheads, or are blazers special?
