Default Who shoots a 400 spine arrow?

If so, what is your draw weight, arrow length, and insert/head weight?

Default Who shoots a 400 spine arrow?

I shoot a 60lb bow with a 400 spine arrow at 28 1/4 inches. 100 grain rage hypodermic on the front end. So far only have killed a javelina with my bow, quartered too, straight through the front shoulder punched the lungs and heart. Was dead in seconds. Hoping to test this combo on a Deer this year if I get the chance

Edit: Ideally Id like to shoot 70 pounds with a heavier arrow and tip but my bow is maxed at 60 so Im stuck there until I upgrade my bow.

Easton axis 5mm 400, 59lb pull, 29", standard insert with 125gr head. I dropped from 65lb this year and 340 spine not as consistent with lower weight. At least for me.

Hmmm

I have always shot ~60-62# with a 29” arrow and 100 gr heads/18 gr insert using a 400 spine


Recently I tried 340s at 65# AND 70# but the 400s still shoot the best. Broadheads and field points shoot the same.

GT Pierce 400 spine 28.5 inches (cannot go shorter without the collar being in the rest. Bow at 58lbs currently. For the last 3 years was shooting Victory Vaps at 30 inches 400 spine. All using 125gr tips.

Last year I turned up the poundage playing and at that weight 3 of 6 arrows flew well, backed off on poundage to 58 all fly well and show it through paper.
