22" just longer and abit more weight. I have shot them as long as 28" using 2219's as the spine is borderline at that length.

I have always shot 20's, really have not looked into the difference. 20's have worked real good on hogs so far.

When I first started shooting Excaliburs in '92, 22" arrows were the norm. Switched 20" when the 22" became hard to find.

You should use the length and weight arrow that is recommended by the maker of the specific model crossbow that you have/buy!!!
