    Bull....does your calculater give any wghts for these shafts...with the exception of the 2512's....i have 3dz of the 2512's ultra/lites that i use for my other hunting bow...which i guess i could get buy with if had to.I ran accross some 2315's but wasn't sure.I sure liked the 2413's but finding any is a pain....shop wants 90$ for a doz bare shafts and as much as i'd like.......thats a little high to me.

    Rick,
    I can't do half inch increments on my calculator so I figured these at a 30" arrow. I will post the bare shaft weights for each.
    I have a easton calculator that says
    bare shaft weights
    2512 309
    2413 315
    2315 354
    2219 417

    Smokes...the bow that i need these arrows for is a darton mag33...and i believe it has the dual hybrid cam system...is that a soft or hard cam.

    Thanks Bull.I guess i'll stick with the 2512 ultr/lites i have...will just have to get use to it.For some reason,the 2413's flew/tuned a little better than the lighter 2512's did out of my 60.I may try a 125gr pt and see what happens....i know the 2413 was a little heavier than the 2512.Maybe the 125 will stiffen it up a tad.

    Hey Rick I looked on Easton's website and it appears they are labeling the SS like they are labeling there carbons now. using 510, 460, 420, 400, 390, 380, 360, 340, 310, 300,..... I shoot a 400 carbon arrow out of my Parker at 60 lbs.... maybe this is why you are having a hard time finding them...:noidea:

    Rick I think ya got it backwords if you increase the tip weight on the 2512 it will cause them to flex more I think what you want to do is go to a 80 grain tip?...:noidea:
