    Default Arrows that will work best for my bow

    Hi all I bought a 07 Guardian a few months few months ago and I am wondering which would be the best arrow for my bow? I have a 27In draw length and I have it at 60 lbs. I grew up shooting Eastons and I have been out of the bow scene for a long time. I am hearing alot of good things about Gold Tips, Carbon Express, I am also wondering if Easton is still making good arrows especially good carbon ones?

    Default Goldtip XT Hunter arrow

    Very affordable. Tough as nails arrow.

    If you stay with a 100grn or 125 grn in the front.

    55/75 XT .400 spine arrow would do you fine.

    I shoot Blazer vanes on mine. Here a few pictures.

    All four arrows in this picture went through deer and still can be shot.

    Notice one went through a shoulder.

    I use these in the state broadhead tournaments as well. Here just one of the shots from the tournament I won. They fly awesome. The arrow crested with white nock is mine. 20 targets, 12 heart shots at unknown distance. Montec Broadheads also helped alot.

    By the way. Bowtech Gaurdian a nice bow.

    What are you going to be doing with them? Hunting/backyard shooting? 3-D? I shoot Easton Axis and Epics for hunting, and Lightspeeds for 3-D. I have no complaints, and the last time I checked, they were still made in the USA.

    Carbon Force X-Weaves are fantastic arrows. Be sure to check them out. I think the 200's would work for your setup. But have them check the charts.

    Paul,
    I am planning on doing 3D shoots, hunting for Deer and Elk. I am looking on my Birth Certificate for my bow and it says I need 350 grain arrows what exactly does that mean? I am seeing 340s on Epics and Axis but no 350's. As you can see I am pretty new to Carbon

    340's is to determine spine. You need an arrow weighing 350 total grains including tip. Your bow is probably a 70# bow. You always need to shoot an arrow weighing 5grains per pound of draw. Or you take the chance of damaging your limbs. Unless you shoot a High Country then its just some crazy numbers. Good luck.

    Yep, your bow was tested using a 350gr. arrow, meaning more than likely you have a 70lber. Like Hoosier said, 340 indicates spine, as does 400, 500, etc. 340 is a heavier spined arrow, the higher the number, the lower the spine. If you are shooting your bow at 60lbs, and plan on keeping it that way, a 400 spine would be a good start. if you adjust up twards 70lbs, and stiffer spine(340) will be better IMO. At 60lbs, you can safely shoot a 300gr. arrow, but be sure to go heavier as you increase your poundage. Good luck.

    Part of the formula is also knowing the gpi of chosen arrow. I shoot a easton st axis 400. It weighs 9.0 gpi. Multiplied by my 29.5" shaft gives me a arrow weighing 266. Plus a 100 gr. tip totals to 366 @ 70lbs. Tweak what you want from there. Get to light and you WILL shatter limbs. Personally a bit heavier equals better penetration. Trade a little speed for a pass thru kill I say.
