Default arrow selection

Was looking to try new arrows and have been considering Carbon tech white tails or victory VX-22....any experiences or suggestions.
I am shooting a 300 spine (68-70 pound bow, 29" draw, 29" arrow, binary cams)
thanks.

let me have a few more details on your setup and I can help you.

1. Bow model and year manufactured
2. peep/loop/silencers or peep/loop wth nock set/silencers, basically need to know what is on your bowstring. Need to know also if peep is tube or tubeless type
3. type of fletching used - blazers/duravanes, etc
4. Actual poundage your draw weight is set to

Provide this information and I can tell if those arrows will be right for you

I am leaning toward the Victory arrow...
Here is my set-up:
2010 New Breed Cyborg
peep (g5 hunter...1/4" about 5gr)
loop
6 speed nocks (3 and 3 about an 1" or so from each cam)
I am open to fletchings...but would like to go with a lower profile 2.5"-3" vane
Draw weight is 67.8# and the DL is 29" flat (off a draw board)
The bow is shooting a 410gr arrow at 300-301 fps at the current set-up.
I would like to keep the arrow at the 410gr mark...but I am actually shooting 387 gr ultralights (300 spine/ 100gr tip)...but as I said looking to try something new.
I appreciate the help.

I might be completely wrong on this, but Victory used to make arrows for Gold Tip so the HV-22 and the GT 22 series may very well be almost identical.

I know the GT 22 series weigh in at 7.3 grains per inch and are a 300 spine. With the light shaft you would have many options on fletching and point weight to adjust for a very good FOC.

The Victory VX-22V1 300 arrows will be perfect at 67 to 70 lbs.

Here is how you need to set them up.

Cut to 29 inches
Duravane 3D 2.3 inch vanes
100 grain tip
total weight = 385 grain
speed expected = 305 fps


Hope this helps and good luck on the 3D shooting.

Thanks...great info...did you use a program? If so could I ask which?
When you say Victory VX-22V1...are those the HV shafts?
Thanks again for all your help!

No they are the VX22 V1 300 arrows.

The VX22HV shafts are too light for your setup, using them would have you below 5 grains per pound with your setup.

The program I use is On Target Software for Archers from Pinwheelsoftware.

www.pinwheelsoftware.com to check it out.

good luck
