OK I'll be using Victory X-Ringers ~315 grains and hoping to get 320 fps, do you think that these arrows are too light fpr 3d, should I go with a heavier arrow with a slower speed?

I like a heavier arrow than ibo. 6-7g/# is what I generally use for 3D.

How much wt. do you have up front?

60 grains with a 38 grain insert - should give me 9.8% FOC.

Having any arrow combination that runs a minimum of 9 % foc and meeting all IBO rules shot at a speed not exceeding what you are capable of shooting repeatedly accurate is what should be your goal line as far as a setup

For example my Pro 22s weigh in at 332.5 grains with a foc of 9% and my bow setup that I can continuously shoot accurate is at 66.5 lbs, my speed checked at a few events ranges from 348 to 350 fps. This works for me, but the key is I can shoot and repeat the shot from one to another with my setup.

This was a bow that I had set up back in July of 2009



Priorities should be accuracy; the capability to repeat the shot and then what ever your speeds end up at you should except the speed and focus on a great shot and then the scores will follow.

Good Luck!
