Default Anyone shoot Carbon Tech arrows?

Cheetahs or Whitetails? Just wondering what arrows (spine) and set up?

I am shooting Cheetah Hunters 65/80 from both of my bows which are 62-64# and 29.5" draw. Why 65/80s? I got them from a friend who thought they would be spined too heavy for his bow. They are way overspined for mine, according to the charts, and yet they shoot great! Maybe if I get a little more serious about 3D, I will get the 45/70 Cheetahs for more speed. Unlike any other all carbon I've shot, they are consistent, every one of the dozen shot well, even with broadheads. I see no difference in accuracy (broadhead or field point) between these and ACCs.

I shoot Cheetah 400's which are the same as the 45/70's and they do fly great. the thing is if you look at their spine chart and use their draw weight calculator it's show's that I should shoot 65/80 or 300 spine arrows (due to arrow length, draw weight, hp cam, etc., draw weight comes out to like 75 - 80 or something like that.I think that for your draw you are at the high end for 45/70 and low end for 65/80. Have you paper tuned your bow though? Which kind of rest do you use? Sorry for all the questions but I'm just looking for as much imput as possible.

I have two bows that are both CPS syle cams, which tune very easily with a variety of spine. On the McPherson Edge, I have a Whisker Biscuit. On the Champion, I have a QAD Ultra rest. I have not paper tuned either bow, but I did bare shaft tune both bows with the Cheetahs, as well as ACC 3-60s which are also a bit of the stiff side. They both will shoot bare shafts straight and grouping with field points at 20 yards. I haven't tried it any farther out. The both shoot broadhead tipped arrows with field points out to 40 yards. If I ever have a chance to hunt out west where shots can be longer, maybe I'll get a little more anal about it.

Well Joe I hunt out west,I shoot the Cheeta hunter 65/80's they shot extreemly well out to 80 yards.
My set up is a Tribute set at 78 lbs with a Rip-cord fall away and the other is a Mathews SB 71 lbs with a WB DLX DP.
I have Blazer vanes and they are crested,shooting 100 field tips and wasp bullet heads.I havent weighed them yet but I'm guessing 380-390 grs.

I shoot the cheetah 525 out of a constitution @ 54lbs. They are great. I have some of the McKinney 2 shafts that I'm going to try out, he promised that I would shoot tighter groups with them, we will see.
