Everything you need can be found at this site.

If you want to go real heavy up front you just may want to move up a little in spine from say a 2016 to a 2018. Experiment a little to find what works for you.

Thanks For The Input But A 2016 Just About Breaks In Half When I Shoot Them, I Havent Tried A 2018 Yet But I Have Been Playing With A 2117. I Started At 30" Bareshafting Cutting Down In 1/4" Incr. I Am Now Down To 28 3/4" And Still Showing Week, The Easton And Blackwidow Charts Say 2216 Should Be Perfect At 29" Or A 2219 At 30". I Will Let You Know What Works Best.thanks Again.

The arrow you are using has a .376 spine and you get perfect flight out of it at 55# on a Widow. Well you gentleman seem to have found something special so good luck with the tuning and the Easton charts. Interesting results so far.

Jimpic,

I just looked at my reply to you and realize it could be taken wrong. When I read your post I thought I read " and every now and then they fly perfectly" I thought you were kidding around so I laughed.

I see what you really said was " I shoot 2216's every now and then, and they fly perfectly." quite different/

sorry

Jim Pic, How Long Are Your Arrows, And What Grain Tip Are You Using? Do You Know How Heavy Your Arrows Are?

Bcoulter--no prob.-I can see how that could have been read differently:wink:
