    Default Which arrows to use

    Hello everyone
    This is my first post here.I need some help with identifying the correct arrows I should be using.I have been away from archery for about 12 years but am starting to get back into it.I shoot a 2317 arrow and went to buy some more but all they had at the store were carbon and some others that were aluminum numbered like 400,500 etc.I dont know what those numbers mean in comparison to my 2317's.I am shooting a 30" arrow and 70lbs draw weight.

    Thank you for any info you can provide.
    Dwayne

    Those are right on the border line fore your draw. I think you would be Ok with these arrows. There tough. I shoot this same arrow. I shoot Blazer vanes on mine.

    Check out all four of these arrows have been shot through a deer.

    If you were looking at the black xx75 gamegetters. The 300s are 2317s.

    300 is the spine (stiffness) rating. You can still get 2317 also in the camo shafts, just the old gamegetters as you knew them are now black and only available in those few selections.

    If your going to go with carbons you might get away with 340s with a 100 grain or lighter head. But if your going to use 125 heads or heavier definately stay with the 300s in carbons as well.
