    Default Gold Tip Ultralight 22's...spine and durabilty??????

    I've been thinking about trying some GT UL 22's for 3D this year. They will probably be the Pro series but not 100% sure. Who shoots them and do you have any opinions on them as for how they hold up. Are they as durable as a carbon such as a standard thickness GT UL or an Easton Lightspeed? The other thing I was wondering about was spine. I normally shot 61-62# with an arrow spined around .400" I'm worried about the .300" spine of the 22's being too stiff for my 62# '06 Bowtech Constitution. Even with 100grn one piece points and bumping my pounds up some that's still a very stiff arrow for the draw weight. Does any one have any opinions on this as well?

    Thanks
    Tim

    I just bought a Connie bow. I plan to shoot these 22's through it at 55 lbs. and 80 grn points. Wouldnt hesitate to shoot my xcutters with 90 grn nibbs which I will be taking to Texas with me. ABOK here shoots and uses these in the Pro class out of his Mathews bows. Personally I like a stiff arrow. Dont have any promblems tuning a bullet hole. Shooting pin nocks and blazer type vanes. Javi here has always liked the 22's.

    I've been shooting the Pro 22s for a while now. I shoot them for 3D with the pin nocks. They are great shafts. No problem with durability at all.

    Shot them last 3D season out of my Prestige at about 58lbs. Very durable and no problems tuning.

    Was wondering the same thing. I do know they are durable. Spine is what I was wondering too. So back to top!

    Default Gold Tip

    I shoot the X cutters and am shooting 280 fps and have had no problems with tuning or durability. I love the arrows and they help you pick up a few points in 3D shooting.
