...in all honesty, while the 400's are not the "correct spine" for that setup...I believe they will shoot just fine from that bow...

...the "charts" will say it is incorrect, but they will still fly alright...

...when she is ready for more arrows then look to get into 600 to 690 spined shafts if you really are looking for the "proper" spine...the number of arrows that go into this "weak" of a spine are quite limited and you may have to order them as opposed to just stopping by your local shop and picking them out!!...

...the Easton EPIC shaft goes down to a 600 spine...great arrow too!!...

...Easton Epic Jr's or the Easton AXIS Jr would also work well for that bow...

...local shops are more apt to have these arrows as they are used for lower poundage shooters...

...good luck, and let's see a picture of your bride with her new rig!! :darkbeer:

Hello reflex3218:

I would suggest Easton Jazz 1516 aluminum shafts
made to order by Lancaster Archery.

These will be custom made,
and you should ask for the following custom components.

The JAZZ arrows use an aluminum cone on the back end.
Ask LANCASTER to cut the cone off
and install Easton Unibushings sized to fit the Easton 1516 arrow shaft.

This is an extra cost procedure.

Then, use the Easton large size G-nock.

MUST ask for 2.5-inch feathers.
The light weight of the feathers will help keep the arrow
WEAK enough. If you use vanes, this will STIFFEN the arrow TOO MUCH.


Ask Lancaster to cut the aluminum tube length = 25.25 inches.

Usually, pro shops want to know the end of shaft
to end of nock groove length.


END OF SHAFT TO END OF NOCK GROOVE LENGTH = 25.75-inches.


Specify the Easton NIBB POINTS (weight = 48 grains).

This is a target point.

This combination should work well for a 25-inch draw length
and 40 lbs of draw weight.


I work with lots of adults,
including adults who have a 24-inch or 25-inch draw length
and shoot about 30 lbs or even less.

Extremely challenging to get the arrow specs correct,
and I even have been know to get out the hand file
and file down the Easton nibb points to get the point weight
correct, so the arrow flies correctly,
from these short draw length, and low poundage bows.


Gotta specify the feathers.





If you want to use vanes (Bohning Blazers),
then the raw shaft length must be longer (26.50 inches)
or another way to put it....

end of shaft to end of nock groove needs to be 27.00 inches,
IF you specify Blazers.

Lancaster does an excellent job on the custom orders.

Easton also makes an "Axis Junior" for such applications - they specify not more than 40 lb. draw weight.
