Two questions

#2 I am shooting at 60lbs. do I get 45-60 lbs arrows or the bigger ones?

I shoot on my lawn and hunt deer and bear with my bow

I have been using the Beman ICS Hunter with 340 spine for years with no problems. They are tough, group as good as I can shoot and the price is right. As far as what spine to shoot if you are not over 60# draw weight I am sure you will fall into the 400 spine catagory. Maybe someone will run TAP on your set-up and tell you for sure.

Beman ICS Hunters are good middle of the road arrows. At 60lbs 29" DL, I would think with a 27"-28" arrow the 400 spine would do the trick.

With my 60lb Marquis 29" DL I shoot 27.5" Beman ICS hunters with a 100gr tip.

I use the Beman ICS Hunter 340 Elite's and I love them. My bows are set at 70 pounds with a 28" draw, arrows are cut to 27" with a 100 grain tip. So you could definitly shoot the 400's.:smile:

I shot the ICS 400 @ 28" for 62# for a few years. Thier a good arrow, and I put down a dam big bear with them. You wouldn't go wrong in getting these arrows.

for 60# i would go with the 500 spine, NOT the 400 as easton recommends. i use the 500 myself, and shoot 60-62# and have a 30" draw length, and they fly awesome. i think easton/bemans arrow chart is off. i always recommend that you select one spine size down from what they recommend. the 400 is good for 70# and the 340 for closer to 80# bows.

A lot will depend on your final choice of arrow length. I use on Target 2 shaft selector for my arrow setups.
