I have two bows that I hunt with that are set at 64 pounds. However I bought a Matthews HTX and turned it down to 54 pounds. My draw length is 27 1/2 inches. I can’t decide what kind of weight I want my arrow to be. I’m open to suggestions

Thanks guys. That is what I was leaning towards. A 400 spine arrow with a 125 grain broadhead. That puts me at 12% foc

Pinwheel. What length are your arrows? That seems like lot for the shaft to handle at that weight unless they are super short.

400 seems to have become the standard, I shoot slightly less and haven't had an issue.

OP IMHO it's about how you hunt........not just a generic number. I hunt super tight woods, funnels, creek crossings, ridges, saddles & anything that puts deer in my lap. I want a quiet, better penetrating rig that is suits my hunting style.

If I were hunting fields out of a blind I might think differently......but I don't. Set it for how you hunt not what arrow weight everyone thinks you should use without all the facts.
