depends on what arrows you want. I'd recommend gold tip xt's in the 55/75 or 75/95 depending on which shoots better. I've founder that the higher spine has been shooting better if you're shooting around 67-75 lbs. or more.

There is no doubt about this. GT XT5575, or any other comparative arrow with a .400 spine--not to be misconstrued with the backward ratings some makers put on them, like Carbon Express. Whichever you choose just look at their charts for the correct spine.

Don't buy cheap, but no need to get real expensive either. Something in the middle like the Gold Tip XT.

How long are your arrows i have a 27 in. draw but my shafts are 25 and that puts me into 35-55 even up to 70 lb. Oh ya i would use gold tip xt.

I have 28 1/2" draw, set @ 62# draw weight. I have been shooting carbon express. cx400. Seem to be shooting pretty well for me.

good luck!

can't help too much because I make my own from some shafts I got off eBay. They work great for me and are super small so all I can add is I do not think you will be disappointed with carbon! [8D]
