    I was wondering if anyone can Give me some insight on some arrows for shooting 3d. I have been using my hunting arrows and I would like to get something that is both light and durable. I shoot a hoyt ultramag 29" draw set at 70#. I have been looking at easton and carbon express, but I have also been thinking about gold tip though I really dont know anyone who shoots them. So if anyone could give me some feedback on what has worked for them I would really appreciate it, thankyou.

    Take a look a Easton Fatboy shafts. I shoot a 29" draw and with 100gr points, mine usually end up at about 363gr.

    I have friends that shoot goldtip xcutters and some shoot the Series 22 pro. The X cutters end up real close to the same weight as the Easton Fatboys but I am pretty sure the 22 series are lighter.

    Gold Tip Ultralite 22 Series. If you don't mind spending a little more money then Ultra;ite Pro 22's.

    I will be shooting the Easton X7 Eclipse this year in the 2613 for indoor and A/C/C 's for outdoor. (Indoor 5 spot that is. Are the 2613's legal for 3d? )

    I shoot a fatshaft.

    I would recommend shooting a larger shaft diameter for 3d.
    I know that with your setup it will take on a really heavy spined arrow no problem.
    I would recommend getting goldtip ultralightpro 22's.
    For some reason they really go out of your setup probably the best from what my friends shoot and what I have gathered for info.I might get rid of these I got and start shooting them myself,there straiter and cheaper.

    Thanks everyone

    Thanks everyone for your input. I have already decided that I am going to puchase the GT ultralight pro 22s. I think that I am also going to go with the pin nocks. These seem like they are very good arrows from what I have heard from you guys and from what I have gathered on my own. I have always been a Easton guy but these seem to be the ones. GT has a arrow builder on there website and you can customize how you want them and it gives you aprox. info like arrow weight and front of center %, it was also very helpful. Again thanks to everyone for your input it was really helpful
