Is there ANY arrow chart that is worthwhile (or even in existence) for high F.O.C. shooters?
I can remember when 150 wasnt even on the charts. Today it is (but) 150 isnt even a heavy head.
Is there somewhere I can go (for reference) to find shaft spine as can be related to head weight for any/all manufactures shafts?

Someone must have done the work.
Right?

Not a chart but . . the software programs like Pinwheel SFAX and the others probably let you add whatever front weight you want and automatically calculate spine and foc for you.

For every 25 grains of point/insert weight or 1 inch of shaft length it will be equal to 5 pounds, so move one box weaker on the charts for every 25 grains in point/insert weight added.

I think you're close Pottergreg or might be dead on, but according to Pinwheel its closer to
25gr is about 3# of draw weight. Can someone else verify what it is?

I just ran a setup for a guy that was:
Hoyt Spyder Turbo at 62 pounds, 28" draw. Arrows are Black Eagle Rampage 350's at 27" long. 100gr tips, 146gr insert weight and 3 fletch blazers

So in his case:
Adding 146 grs over the 100 gr, which is shown on most arrow charts (146/25= ~6)
For the charts that's roughly like shooting 18# over your 62# (6*3= 18)
So you can go to the chart and look up 70# @ 28" (62+18=70#)

Which would put him at a 300 spine and that verifies
