Default Easton Axis ST arrow SIZE ??

Just got my new bow from the dealer and had it all set up ,
Told them I,d be shooting it 62 to 67 lbs .
Its a 2007 Tribute . I,m a 29 inch draw , but have a 28.5 module installed do to using a bow loop .
I,m using a wisker biscut rest ,
He cut the arrows to 28 inches with the target tips and knocks there abought 29 inches long .
He set me up with Easton Axis ST HIT carbon 400 arrows .
I went to the Easton sight and unless I,m looking at it wrong shouldnt I be using 340,s ??
Been bugging me .. [:@]

Nope. The ontarget software has you a little on the stiff side with the 400's and a 125 grn point. You are good.

I don't know how fast that setup is, but I suspect it's on the quick side which means a very hard cam. I can't imagine that an Axis 400 would be stiff enough at your specs. It very easy to verify by shooting a bareshaft with your fletched arrows at about 25 yards. If the 340 are too stiff, it's easy enough to use longer arrows (if your dealer hadn't already messed up), or add some tip weight. If the 400s are too weak, you can reduce tip weight (bad idea on a hunting arrow in my opinion), or shorten the arrows if there is room on your rest and you feel safe with the broadhead that far back.

Those are the numbers I used with the program. You're good with the 400's.

It'sthat 62 to 67 lb. draw weight range that is creating the delimna here. At 62 lbs., you aregood with a 400 series arrow. I shoot 60.7 lbs with this same arrow and it is right on the money - medium cam Hoyt Pro Tec. But one of my buddies shoots 66 lbs. with his Mathews Switchback XT. He needs a 340 series arrow, at 29", to be spined correctly. We both use 100 gr. heads.
