Black eagle ps23-7.3 goi. Easton super drive 23- 6.3 goi. Victory nvx25hv-6.4 goi. Vaps are 5.9 gpi I think. Black eagle Challenger is 6.9 gpi. I did a 24.5” ctc with 130 grain point total arrow weight is 335 grains. R35 elite bow 60# 27.75” draw length. Darts at a fast speed. I’m not even close to halfway on sight tape at 80 yards I could easily shoot 120-140 yards I believe.

I would test some different weights. You can get so light where arrow actually slows so fast that a little heavier arrow would fly a little further. Lighter doesn’t always mean further. Especially in a head wind.

that is true, was counting out Mountains not have much wind, typically they do not, but your right they could kind of a gamble, but i think i can go lighter than 7.4 without issues a little anyway can always put some wt back on the tip. (within reason for foc)

Victory 3D HV = 5.9 gpi with a 400 spine. Get the glue in break off points, I would tune it as heavy as a point as I could for high foc. Get the bow bare shaft tuned and use really small light fletchings, fletch close to straight for best trajectory

Amazingly tough and accurate arrow. I'm shooting them at 290 FPS at 48 lbs, 30" draw. Arrow is 28" tip to nock indent with 100 gr. break off tips. You may want 120 grains up front but mine shoot very accurate with 100 grs.

What total weight you want? My vap 400’s with 120 glue ins weigh 344. They’re like 27 something inches long carbon to nock.

Honestly though for TAC light and fast doesn’t really matter, as long as you can get a little past 100 with your sight.

I shoot Victory RIP XV and they are very light and accurate as long as you shoot 125 field point has high FOC and fly like a dart.

If you want light, why go for 400 spine? At your draw and weight you could easily shoot 500 spines. My wife is shooting 26" 54#s, and we have her shooting 600 spine GoldTip Ultralight 5,9 GPI but tough as steel compared to some of the other light arrows. They are shortened to 24".
