Easton lightspeed 500 are 6.5gr per inch
Easton lightspeed 400 are 7.4gr per inch
Easton Fatboy 500 are 7.1gr per inch
Easton Fatboy 400 are 7.8gr per inch
Radial X-Weave Pro 100 are 6.6gr per inch
Radial X-Weave Pro 200 are 7.5gr per inch

All are great shafts just make sure you stay above the minimum of 5gr per pound. Good luck my friend with whatever you decide.

well - what kind of bow do you shoot, what's your draw length, are you sure your pulling 60lbs? What are you looking to spend on arrows, or are you looking for the best you can get? How long do you want the total arrow length to be? What weight points/blades will you be using? I would recommend at least 6 grns per inch, I've seen some nasty things at 5. Does it matter vanes vs. feathers? Fingers or Release? Overdraw? Do you want to stick to any peticular brand like Easton or GoldTip? Everything helps.
