    So you would make the arrow an underspined arrow just so you can shoot 150 grains because it's indoors?!?!?!?

    That makes a lot of sense.

    Your making several assumptions that the arrows would be under spined. Why would they make 150 gr points in the 1st place?

    The same reason they make points in other weights. Not everyone needs the same weight points....

    And I'm not making assumptions....I understand arrow spine and what heavier and lighter points do to spine.....someone with a 30" draw shooting 60lbs doesn't need 150 grain points in an arrow with that spine of an arrow.

    So reading ALL of the information he has provided would tell anyone with a clue about spine and building arrows that he doesn't need 150 grain points....and that's with no assumptions. It's from plenty of playing with programs, and building and shooting many different setup and helping others build perfect arrow combos over the years.

    Optimum point or insert/point combined weight in a 29" arrow at 60# with a 350 spine would be in the 125 to 165 gr range.
    The 150 gr would also give the arrow a better FOC % for getting the fired arrow stabilized quicker for the short range venue. The 100 gr point optimizes speed and trajectory for the 3D venue, but sacrifices optimum FOC.

    Once the arrow becomes longer han 28" a lil more FOC % per inch longer should be added
    All the best Vegas shooters opt for more weight in the nose, making theyre arrows in the soft end of the optimum spine range of the shaft they shoot.

    A hunter shooting a 29" carbon to carbon 340-350 spine arrow in a 60#, 30" draw with a 125 gr head and a 15-40 gr insert would also be adequately to optimally spined.

    Easton Spine chart states 150 gr is optimum in the 340 to 360 spined arrow at 60# and 30"

    In conclusion , a 100 gr total point weight in a 29" Carbon to Carbon 350 spined arrow in a 30" draw 60# bow would be overspined , but probably not enough to NOT achieve good enough results in the 3D venue.

    I shoot the 300 (over)spined GT Series 22 with a 125 gr nibb 29" carbon to carbon in a 60# 30.5" draw bow with good results, but the shaft in significantly lighter GPI and I have high FOC. I have 8 or 9 of these made up with 175 gr points for indoor.
