Hello, I'm new to both this forum and the world of compound bow archery so please be patient with me!

I'm changing my compound bow to a Bear Archery Species LD RTH 45-60lb because I need a longer draw length. So, I'm also looking for appropriate arrows to match the new bow.

My trouble is, I'm having a hard time finding where to search and buy the exact arrows I need. I'm going to have a draw length of about 31.5in-32in with a draw weight of 45-50lb while using a trigger. I'll mostly be using it for backyard target shooting so I'm not looking for broadhead or barbed arrows either. In my understanding, I need an arrow length of 31in+ and a spine rating between 400 & 340 if the arrows has a 100grains point weight.

Since I'm only doing target practice for now, I would prefer the arrows not to cost more than about $7-8 each since I would like to get atleast 6 of them, 12 if I can afford it. Also, unless you can pick out what components I would need, I would prefer them to be fully built arrows.

Does anyone have a recommendations on where to buy arrows, or, know of any specific arrows that would fit my needs? I've search some retailers but, either I can't find arrows that match me or I don't trust the the seller's description enough to know what I'm buying.

Thank you for your help!

With your long draw length and also in case you decide down the road that you’d like to turn your draw weight up to 60 lbs, I would go with a 340 spine. Something like Gold Tip Hunters would serve you well for what you’re looking for. I think a half dozen of them fletched and ready to shoot runs around $50.

I agree. Either the GT Hunters or the GT Velocities are great affordable, durable arrows

Thank you all for your help! The Gold Tips do seem like good options so I'll pick one of those up, likely the Hunters. Though, I also do like the huntersfriend.com website so I'll keep that in mind for the future. Thanks!
