Gold Tip: FOC and Spine Size
I wanted to know if the FOC for my setup is to high? and If my Arrow's spine size is strong enough? I plan to shoot targets with field tips until October then I will start hunting. I'm new to bow hunting and I haven't shoot these arrows yet because I'm waiting for the the inserts to dry. Thanks

Now, according to the info you gave, I plugged it into GT's FOC calculator and it put you outside the 8%-12% they recommend. I tried switching you to a 100g screw in tip with insert (115g) and it put you at 10.46%. If you drop to a lower weight tip, your FOC and spine should be fine.
Here's the link:

Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.
