Im looking at giving these arrows a try for ASA 3D hunter division. Woundering how they fly since there both stiffer than my standard 400 spine. Please state what set up your shooting yours from and arrow setup also. Here are my specs....

Monster 6.5 at 28" 60-70lb

Supra single cam at 28" 60-70lb

Any info and recommendations will be greatly appreciated..Thanks

If you want arrows the diameter of the x-cutters, why not look at the Victory X-Ringer 350s? They are a good accurate arrow (avoid the HVs if you want durability, get the HVs if you want speed and diameter over durability). The 350 will probably spine out pretty nice for your setups (especially if you're running closer to 70 than 60).

Currently
28.5 draw 60lbs and shoot 22's with 90 grns in front. Low profile vanes due to shoot through cables.

Shot xcutters for years at 65 to 70 pounds 90 grns in front with 2.0 HP vanes.

Highly recommend a little more weight in front up to 120 grns with your fast bows and higher pounds. Blazer type vanes work great.

Just talked with Jame Jamison

He going back to 22's after Florida. Said he got to many glance outs with large shafts in florida. Smaller 12 rings now days this makes perfect sense.

Wow!! Thats good info there Boone man. What kind of points do most people shoot with them? Thinking about putting some regular
3D Nock Busters on them. Not the pin ones. Waht do yall think?

Archerymedic, thats about were I need to be. Thanks!!

I'm shooting the GT Pro22's with 125 grain GT points in the front putting them at 13% FOC. I shot the 120 grain Nock Busters on Fatboys last year and had some kickouts. My thought are that the Nock Busters are about twice as long as the regular GT points which also puts them farther from the target if it is a glancing blow off a pin bushing which should mean more glance off than the shorter GT point. But, they are sharper and could robin hood too. Just my perception and not concrete or words to live by.

Shooting the GT ultralight 22's very impressed with them so far. I'm at 29" about 63#'s right now. I'll be back upto 66#'s soon here been shooting a ton and my shoulder can't take the 66#'s. 28.5" arrow out of a Bear anarchy using screw in 75gr bullet tips. And easton G nocks with blazer vanes. Total arrow weight is at 338gr So far they have been working great for me. I won't be switching to another arrow anytime soon and plan on Deer hunting with them as well with an 85gr broadhead haven't messed with broadhead flight yet but i don't think it will be far off.

Ohh and my friend was shooting the Ultralight 22's out of his monster at 66#'s with a 342gr arrow getting 332FPS so you will probably want to stay away from the ultralights for asa ;)

Im shooting a 2012 Pse Supra Me 28 1/2 draw 61 lbs shooting the ultralights 22s not the pro 22s there a waste of money unless your shaft is over 28.5 inches long. my shaft is 312 gr shooting 90 gr pts and shaft is just over 27' inches and im getting 326 fps. I talked to Tim Gilingham about setting up my 3-d arrow and he told me to save my money if my arrow is under 28.5 in length. just buy the reg ultralights for $69 and cut both ends of the shaft and just us the center of shaft. I have shot the goldtip pro's for the last 2 yrs and now im saving $50 and im shooting the reg ultralights. They shoot every bit as good i can see no diff.. just call Tim at goldtip and he can explain it further for u..
