Do you guys have better luck on accuracy with lighter arrows or heavier arrows? Just curious.

I've shot GT Velocity pros at 357grains and then shot some Easton FMJ's at around 430 grain out to about 40 yards and couldn't tell much of a difference so far (besides speed and drop) groups were both pretty tight. My CS 30 is 29", number 3 cam, about 72 pounds. The FMJs where penetrating my "the block" about 1-2 inches more though.

My Spyder Turbo shoots best with arrows between 375-425 gr. I have two sets that I routinely use, my Easton Da'Torch (375 gr) and my Easton Carbon Injexions (409 gr). The Injexions shoot the best - most accurate and quietest. Hope that helps.

Mine likes a heavier arrow at distance but at normal hunting distances I dont see much of a difference other than 1-2 inches deeper penatration into the target. I shoot 450 grain Black Eagle carnivores and have like the results.

my spyder 30 shoots my heavier arrows a little more accurately. I find that i hold better groups with my 380 grain axis over my 355 grain x-weaves. Especially at distances over 80 yards.

I have shot both easton axis 340's and axis 400's
The 400's tend to shoot faster but the 340's seem to be holding a tighter group beyond 40 yards

It does not matter it is all about the weather the arrow will tune or not. With mine I have shot 455 grain arrows as well as 380 grain arrows just as good.

I've found my Spyder Turbo to be much more spine critical than weight. At 65# I shoot GT Velocity Pros 340s and Easton AC Carbon Injection 330s. I would have to say that other than the heavier Eastons feeling more solid and quieter there isn't much difference in accuracy as far as I can shoot accurately. I played with some GT Vel Pro 400s for a while and my groups were noticeably bigger than the 340s.
