    I shoot a matthews drenalin at 65lbs with Beman 400 arrows...Is there a lighter arrow I can shoot at that weight?

    Easton Lightspeed's come to mind. I think a 400 spine is around 7-1/2 gpi. Carbon Express also has a 3D shaft but I'm not sure what the weight is on it.

    I'm shooting Gold Tip Ultralight 500's (6.3 gpi) out of my Guardian set at 56 lbs. I'd guess you would need the 400's (7.4 gpi) though for your weight. That's assuming an arrow length of 26"-28". Chart says 300's if your shooting 29"-31" though.

    The 3D selects are about the same 7.3 or so...

    Thanks again for all of yalls suggestions I've chossen to go with Easton lightspeed 400s. With them cut to my length and blazers added the weight comes out to be 320 grains which keeps me at 5 grains per pound of draw weight.....Thanks again for answering my thread.:peace:

    My club has a few people with Lightspeeds and they don't complain...
    If I didn't have Fatboys already I would use Lightspeeds myself.

    Good luck with those.
