Those arrows are underspined. I shoot 60# arrows cut at 27 1/2 and I need a 400 spine.

They are fine! They would be underspined if I was shooting a 100 or 125gr tip...im not Im shooting a 65gr tip! Im shooting exactly what the bowtech dealer set me up with and its working AWSOME! I wanted a light set up and thats what I got. I have been shooting heavy set ups for 21 years time for a change!

PSE Thunderbolt, shooting 265 fps at 68 pounds. Shoot Carbon Express 300's with 100 grain spitfires. Thought about updating many times, but why change when something works really good for you? Speed doesn't kill, accuracy and quietness does.

Well If they aren't underspined that's great! Thats some awesome speed out of that general! Wait, Your shooting 70# with a 308 grain arrow?! Isn't that considered dry fire and thus void your warranty?

I'm shooting an old PSE FireFlite 33. ATA 33" with 29" DL pulling 71lbs and shooting around a 400gr. arrow. I have a zebra string in it with a fixed peep and trophy taker drop away rest. it does about 258 on a good day. A double lung shot still giving me about 3-5" of ground penetration.
