    Got this off AT:

    Victory has changed the label to read true spine!
    The old label said size and the new label will match spine.
    V-Force500 = .300" spine OLD
    V-Force500 = .500" spine NEW
    That should help all of us out!!


    The old arrows are supposedly going cheaply to dealers and may be had at a good price (possibly?) Just FYI to anyone looking

    my question has always been why companies have to make it so hardto figure out.......

    CX has 100 150 200 250 300 350 400..........the lower the number the weaker the spine.......makes sense to me......:noidea:

    It shouldn't make sense.

    a .100 spine is stiffer than a .400 spine.....right?....:noidea:

    not sure about all that but I know that a CX 100 is extremly weak and the 400 are extremly stiff.......most normal people (NON archery tech) will understand that............

    Well, being abnormal......that seems backwards to me.

    The spine measurement indicates how much an arrow bends under a specified weight ( I believe a 30" shaft is placed across a 28" opening and a 1lb weight is placed in the center). A .500 spine arrow will sag .500" while a .100" spine will only sag .1" making it stiffer.

    Soooooooooo........lower numbers being weaker is arse backwards....

    Maybe we should try to make "normal" archers more informed as to what archery stuff means. :noidea:


    If everyone knew how the spine was measured and what the numbers stood for, then all arrow companies could label like Victory is doing and it would make sense and all confusion would disappear. BTW, I'm sure Victory isn't the first to do this, I was just using them as an example......don't want anybody thinking I'm a PTP.....:doh:

    I think where the most confusion comes in is when everyone starts using their own numbering systems that are completely different from others. The lack of a standardized naming convention is really what it comes down to...

    I agree. They should all just put the spine on the arrow and stop the madness.

    Anyone else think its strange that Victory is actually changing the arrow to match the label as opposed to the other way around?

    the cx 150 spline is .495. the 250 is.404 and the 350 is .345. so the lower the no. the weaker the arrow is. and they no longer make a cx 200 which shot good out of my bow.

    they no longer make a CX shaft they have gone to all MAXIMA shafts for hunting......so those spines are correct for the Maximas


    BUT not on all their shafts.......

    the LINEJAMMER SS 250 is .381 spine

    the CXL SS 150 is 0.495......the 250 is .400.......and the 350 is .338.......

    I wonder how many people got the wrong spined arrow with the way they were doing it?

    Easton's arrows have reflected the true spine for as long as I can remember it makes it real easy to get what you need. This should be the standard of the way arrows are labeled. Put the actual spine dimension on em!

    I think the industry should refer to spine as deflection amount under a standard weight hung off the shaft using a standard length...
    That would be easiest for everyone actually.

    It's kind of the same thing with lens 'power' vs. diopter...

    Yea, I too don't like the numbering system on the arrow spines......

    Goldtip 5575 are .400 and my Satellite 2980s are .359 spine :noidea:
