Gold Tip 55/75 or 75/95???

I am curious what spine would fit my set up better. I am shooting 28 inches of arrow from my 06 Tribute. Draw length is 29, draw weight 70 with the speed cams. I use a release and the bow has factory riggings. I tend to shoot 100gr tips with feathers or vanes steering them. Are the 55/75's just right, or are they bordering on the line of being weakspined. I would like to use the 75/95 to increase my arrow weight a bit, the Gold Tip Chart shows them to be too stiff for my setup. I feel that a 364gr arrow is on the light side for elk. Also, can anyone recommend an arrow in the Gold Tip XT Hunter price range that would afford the durability that's inherint to the Gold Tips, but weigh a little more. The 55/75's are 8.2 per inch. How about around 9.5-10 per inch. Thanks!!

I have a similar setup and also shoot the 7595 and 125 grain heads with great success. I would suggest you not cut all your arrow to 28" right away. Leave 3 of them a long, say 29", see how they fly. Play with point weight. You can always trim a bit more, you can never add it. When you have them dialed as far as point weight and arrow length, cut the rest. Just a thought.
