many will do: you need to decide what grain tip you will shootfirst...i like to pick my tip then shoot full length bare shaft and keep cutting them till they bullet hole thru paper then i fletch at that length...some may say ya cant paper tune a traditional bow ...poppy cock...if your form and release are good it willtell you what to do on paper ....but you dont need paper to see which way arrow kicks at the start....remember the heavier the tip the more arrow you can cut...but for starters try 1916,2013.2016, and if what you want is heavey arrows?....2018 all over this one with a 145 grain tip...you willbe around 500 grains or more arrow weight.....another choice would be 3555 gold tip traditional xt's...besides lookig like wood they are tough as nails...however you will either need to put weight tubes by carbon express in side or use a muzzy 50 or 100 grain brass insert then choose your tip and start cutting for good arrow fligth...it's what i do and it works. happy huntin :thumbs_up
For carbons, Beman ICS Classic or ICS Hunter .500 deflection with 125 gr. point will be in the neighborhood. Will it be heavy enough to hunt with? Depends on what you're hunting, but at 420 grains they would be plenty for hunting whitetails.
So the bow ended up being 55# @ 28"? If so, then .500 deflection might a bit weak-spined, but not much. All depends on how centershot the bow is or isn't.
