    Default what type of arrows do most target tournament archers use

    i have bought a jva astro target bow and need to know what are the other choices of arrows that i can shoot. i am currently shooting 2312's with nib points.. due to kids and a wife, i would like to find a reasonable priced arrow without sacrificing the acuracy.. i've been thinking of goldtips new 30x but still a little pricey. any help! please..

    ps: this site is the best that i have found. glad to be here.

    easton fat boys are what target shooters are using if you get a dozen they will all weigh the same. once you go fat you wont go back

    Spots and 3d are two different games....I dont know many people that shoot the same bow much less the same arrows...I shoot a x7 2613(660gr. total) with 220 grains in the nose for spots and shoot a 3-49 easton A/C/C (385 gr.) for 3d as well as field events.

    Look at X-cutters you can get them for $60.00 for the Ultralights. And they shoot great.
