Default 3D arrow choice

I am shooting a Hoyt Maxxis 35 at 62# 27.5" draw.

I had decided on Easton Lightspeeds 400 spine and ordered a dozen. I heard yesterday that there was no stock available and have since been looking for another arrow. What can you guys recommend and why? I would prefer Easton or Carbon Express because those are the 2 brands that I should "easily" be able to get my hands on in a "short" time. I'd like the arrow to weigh around 350 grains.

Thanks in advance,

ZA

cxl 250's are awesome 3-d arrows. The cx maxima's are great too.

There are a lot of guys shooting Easton Fatboys, you might give them a try if the others are not available.

You ever think about Victorys? The V-Force are good arrows and although I don't know which part of SA you're in, I'm pretty sure there's a dealer in KZN.

I forgot about the Victory's, I will look into them, thanks. How popular are Fatboys for 3D, I would have thought a fat arrow wouldn't be the best choice for outdoor archery?

Thanks again,

ZA

What spine would you recommend for my setup, 400 or 500?
