I'm shooting 57lbs, I've been shooting 400 spine... means nothing to me... anyway a friend at the archery shop suggested going with a 350 spine for a stiffer/faster arrow. .. any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks

Spine has nothing to do with faster. Ive shot 350s with a 45 gr insert and 100grn points out of a fairly slow (250fps) 60lb bow. Shot sweet.

If you dont weight the front of the arrow you will be on the stiff side but Id say you could still tune fine. Higher spine in the same shaft means higher gpi thus slower arrow.

You’re spine is fine. You could shot 350 as well and it be fine (using one of the many softwares to ensure best cut length)

More important is if that arrow and spine selected and cut length shoot well for you and your bow.

Do the arrows shoot well?  If so, stop thinking, start shooting more.

 

Don't get lost in the geek aspect of archery, just get a setup that shoots well and buy enough arrows to last years and don't second guess it!


Give me a bow, a topo and two weeks and I guarantee I kill two weeks!

Just like hunting spots posted online, stupidity is searchable forever.

I would shot what you have been practicing with then if your going to make changes make them afterwards 


it is my intent to do what is best for TOF, my bed side manners suck and for that I am sorry.
I am blunt and to the point and I do not have the ability to sugar coat it to save your fillings, So really if I tell you stop pissing on the carpet, just knock it off, man up and don't puff up carry on like soap opera. the rules here are really light so man up.

Some have asked way do you put up with all the crap some put me through. and this is it
I am tired of big business just taking form us outdoorsmen. most of the product is defective and does not work as stated. bottom line if there product sucks I want ever outdoorsmen to know about.

All I ask is support those that support you, this place is about real unpaid information, its real outdoorsmen not paid to say something outdoorsmen.........
