    Default gold tip vs easton hunting arrow

    i'm been research on 2 compare arrow, well the eastson flatline got 8.2 gpi compare to gold tip xt hunter 5575 " black " at 8.2 gpi and camo at 8.6 gpi, and my arrow lenght was at 28 3/4 " long at 70#, hard to make decison which one i want to get..
    will have to get arrow scale with uncut shaft and cut shaft see what difference weight on arrow..

    for eastson i would go with 340, for gold tip 5575..

    Who cares about weight in the end those couple grains difference between the two shafts won't add up to squat. You won't even see a difference in your pin gaps even if one is 5fps faster.

    Proper SPINE is WAY more important then the little difference in weight. The Flatline is .340 spine and the GT is .400 spine. With an arrow that length I am guessing that your draw is at least 29" or so....those GTs are probably going to be too weak of a spine for you unless you are VERY good at setting up and tuning a bow.

    You seem to be comparing apples to oranges here. You're more worrried about matching weight than spine. To make an honest comparison you need to compare the Easton Flatline 340 to the Gold Tip 7595 (also a 340 spine). The 5575 is a 400 spine and will not likely shoot the same even at the same mass weight as the Flat Line. You might be better off to compare the Gold Tip Velocity 340 to the Flat Line.

    3 grains of arrow weight equal about 1 fps... why worry about tenths of a grain difference

    Good question... pretty sure even a Hooter Shooter wouldn't notice.

    reason i compare is to search for a 2 in 1 , KE and SPEED and put animals down, i'm plan on go with 7595 that has 340 spine or go 300 velocity,
    so i can get goldtip and compoent direct gold tip
