I've never shot a single round of spots but have been shooting 3D for years and finally decided to cross over. So what arrows are you guys shooting for indoors? Brand, size, fletching, point weight?? Give me some ideas.....

I only shoot 41# indoors with a VE with spirals. Shooting X7 2512's 30.25" with 220 points and 4" helical feathers. These things have eyes... At this poundage, I wish I could shoot 27's but they are just too much bullet. Not much help for you cause I know you have to be shooting more weight. A lot of the better shooter are now using 4" vanes instead of feathers which was always a mainstay....Bound to be lots of info in "search" on indoor set ups

Just show up and shoot the same arrows that you shoot 3-d with. Then if you get hooked on indoor you will be buying a target bow and arrows and rest and sight and 2000 dollars later you will be set. I shoot 3-d with carbon tech cheetas and indoor I shoot 300 with around 48 to 50 x with the same arrows. Sure target bow and arrows would help but it is my first year trying indoor also. I like it but it isn't as fun as 3-d to me.

I started in a 5 spot league a month or so ago and I am using a hunting set up w/ hunting arrows. After seeing the serious 5 spot guys and their set ups I would recommend just getting 5 broom sticks and put field points on them! They are about the same size as those tree trunk target arrows and wont cost you a ton if you change your mind.:wink: Tons of money in target shooting for sure!

Sorry, I couldnt resist. Maybe just jealousy of not having the big arrows.

lol, definate arrow envy! I like to tease the guys that use them but they are also getting higher scores than me so I guess they do serve the purpose.

I shoot a Easton Eclipse X7 2712 cut 31" with 300 grain Pro Pins up front and 4" feathers.

And I also shoot Easton Full Bores Cut 28" with 100 grain Pro Pins and blazers vanes. I shoot this for both indoors and 3-D.

Easton Cobalt 2312's with 4 3" vanes. I don't do the "fat shaft" thing. I found an arrow that was properly spined to the bow as opposed to trying to make a fat shaft work. They shoot great. When I miss an X it's my fault. They shoot where you point 'em.
