Victory VForeceHV 400's are 6.4gpi. So:

6.4*28.5=182.4
100gr points=282.4
3 Blazers (18gr)=300.4
Nock & Insert=24gr 324.4

Your min. weight is 325 but with glue you'll be fine. That's about as light as I can see you getting. This would be fine for 3D - definitely on the light side for a hunting arrow though.

Gold Tip XT 7595 for a hunting setup. If you want more speed you could shoot the Ultralite 300 or 22 series. These both weight the same (7.3 gpi) and are on the stiff side for your setup, but you're kind of on the edge for shooting a 400 spine. 7595 is a .340 spine.

My opinion? Da Torch is way too much money. Fancy name and high price won't make it shoot any better.

Price aside, what about performance and speed for my setup ?

Well I set my SBXT up at #64 with Easton Da' Torch 400's, 28", 7.2gr. @ 264fps.
I was at #70 running X-Weave 300's, 28.5", 8.6gr. @ 272fps
I am liking the arrow so far, groups are great.
However I was hoping to pick up some speed but I'm actually about 8fps slower
