I have some carbon tech hippos, uncut, with 125gr pro points. They don't seem to be grouping as well as they should be. I am shooting a constitution at 53lbs. Could anyone tell me if this is the proper length and point wt or not? Any suggestions?

What spine are the Hippo's 520 or 400 and what draw length? I was too slow typing.

TAP is showing them way weak at full length. You need to cut your shafts down to 29".

I shoot 400's with only 70 grains up front and they are cut 28.5, they are very accurate. I'm assuming they are the gold label as well, they group better than the white.

Cut them DOWN...they aren't aluminum arrows....you can't build them like you would an aluminum.

I had my 400's cut to around 27" with 150s and they shot great from 48-60 lbs.
