Ok so I just ordered my first ever target bow. A Mathews TRX7 70lb peak weight 28.5 draw. I am wanting to shoot the Easton X23 I'm guessing I will most likely need the 2315 but have no idea what point weight to use or length to cut.

I always hear guys using point weight 180 - 220 and it seems like that would make the arrow too weak. Am I missing something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just recreational indoor spot shooting for now. I'm gonna say probably around 66-70 lb mark for draw but I am pricing out some 60 lb limbs too

Archers Advantage says 2315 28.5 125 gr point at 65 lbs is optimum spine

For reference,

Hoyt Prevail 37 SVX
No.3 cam Mod C (29") set at 29.25"
60# DW (World Archery legal)
IBO Speed 321 fps

Indoor arrow setup:
29" X7 Eclipse 2315 (same X23)
180 grain Competition Archery Pro Pin Point
4" Gateway Feathers
Chrono Speed 240fps

At the 70lb mark your going to struggle with 23's being underspined, maybe looking toward 25XX to 2712's

Archers Advantage shows a 2712 with 200 grain points at 28" would be fine

I shoot a trx 8 indoor with 29.5 draw and 59#. My x23 setup is 2315 30 to the nock grove with 200gn point and 2.6 aae hybrid vanes. This combo pounds but at 65# you probably want to look at the new 2318 with a similar setup. Just my 2c but over 60# is a lot for indoor archery and the high reps involved.
