    IBO arrow weight would be 62lb x 5 grains = 310 grains

    thats pretty much the benchmark and industry standard for the minimum suggested arrow weight that will keep your warranty intact...5 gns per every lb of draw weight..

    If you shoot a lighter arrow than that it could most likely void your manufacturers warranty should your bow fail or blow up..
