    Just a quick question. I have an older bow. It works great and I have no reason to abandon it yet for a new one. It's an xi paragon. Well that isn't the reason I'm writing. I have for several years, used aluminum shafted arrows with mechanical broad heads. The shaft I use is an Easton xx75, 2315 lite. It's 31" and I use a 125 Grain blade. I would like to switch to carbon. I don't know a lot about carbon shafts. Does anyone know of a conversion chart that is online. I would like to switch and order them online. Thanks for the help.

    Right...

    Draw length, peak draw weight, brace height, arrow length and point weight all consipre to determine proper arrow spine.

    Really ? I never heard/saw that said before... :noidea: :laugh:

    Yeah, HOT is really what it is. My buddy went out yesterday afternoon for a good old PM hunt and he lasted 30 minutes and got out of the stand. He called me and said it's too damn hot... No kidding...
    This next week it's going to cool down. By Thursday the high is going to be around 60 degrees. Nice enough for me...

    Hey Ron. What about tuning your bow to match an arrow? Can it be approached from that end successfully?

    I killed a buck on 8-18, opening day of bow season. It's rifle season here now and I'm waiting for most of them to clear out. It was 37 degrees here this morning. Last two weeks of Oct. I'll be out there.

    Question

    OK. What I am looking for is some good help. Every time I run to the local sport shop, the guy always tryies to get me to buy stuff I don't need. I don't have a lot of money to spend and I would like to try something new. I have heard that carbon shafts are better than aluminum, last longer and get better penetration. I have used aluminum for years because they are less expensive and the charts are easy to figure out. What info do I need in order to make the switch? Thank you in advance.

    At a minimum.... we need your draw weight and draw length and the point weight that you want to use.. It is possible to tune your bow to your arrow if the arrow's spine is within the limits of your bows adjustment. We can get you close with those numbers.

    If you want perfection we need more info. I use OnTarget software. It asks for everything when figuring whether or not an arrow will work for my bow.

    5575 gold tip xt's, thats what I shoot. They will be borderline overspinned for your setup, but its better to be over rather than underspinned. And if you will be able to up your draw weight if you would like to around 60 or 65 without having to worry about your arrows being strong enough.
