would this work?
 
well i went to bass pro shop today and i was told that this setup would work well for what i want to acomplish...

i got my dw set up at 59-60 lbs and i have about a 27 inch draw with a release.

i plan on buying some carbon fury arrows[6075] that weigh 10.1 grains per inch @ 30 inches.... the main reason for wanting to get a longer arrow is cuz i dont feel comfortable with a broad head real close to my hand...any way

on the chart it says for 58-63 lbs i can use 30 in arrows[6075]..but for 29 inch arrows i can use the [4560] @ like 9.1 grains per in..

30 inch arrows will sit about 3 inches in front of the bow at full draw

im so confused can some one help me i dont know what to get..[6075] or [4560]

dont rag on me for wanting toget these arrows ...i know what yall are thinkin buy a good bow just to put "cheap" arrows on it..

i was also considering the beman ics hunters but those are lighter...

whats the reccomended grains per inch for hunting...i need a good punch for some hogs..

I would use 45-60's and cut them to 28 inches. They will still be out in front of your hand by at least an inch and you will be better spined for your set up.

whats the difference between a 8.4 gpi and 10.1 gpi...also whats reccomended for hunting?

8.4=252 @ 30 in
10.1=303 @ 30 in...+100 grain braodhead.=403 is that too heavy of an arrow that would mainly be shot at 30 yds?

Choose the 4560's. The 6075's are way too stiff. I've run a quick OT2 simulation for your bow with the Carbon Express Terminator Lite which is basically the same arrow and the spines will be identical. Eastman makes both arrows under the 2 different names.

Unless you use a 125 gr head the shortest you should go with that arrow is 29".

Your completed arrow will be about 384 grains w/ 100 gr tip.

^ do you like your instinct? the reason i am askin is cause i am getting one this weekend and i wanted to know what you think.

davepjr71 03-12-2008 06:42 PM

Your welcome.

OT2 is worth the $24.95 you pay for it. Once you get a chrono'd arrow you can set the IBO for your bow.

yeah i luv my instinct...
its very smooth at draw and feels very comfortable in my hands..

dave
if i use a 29 inch arrow with the 4560's it will be perfectly spined right?
i tried it on the ot2 and it seemed to spine perfectly

Brandon,

You are doing that right. As far as your bow's DL. What was your bow set up for? What does the sticker say on the lower limb? There is a big difference in 1" of DL and definitely will affect spine.

You sure what you were using wasn't for arrow length selection and not DL? If has a rest on it with markings and you draw it back and look at where the mark is in relation to the rest it's for arrow length, not DL.I have a 30" DL and can shoot a 27" arrow based on rest position.

Make sure you select Hunting and not Target in the Spine Sizing tab. Eitherway, you could still can use the 29" arrow and if your DL is 28" it would work even better.

I suppose another question is..."How tall are you???" Or have you tried the "wingspan" method for drawlength??

Dave, how do you get the page to copy and show up like that. I just bought OT2, but can't figure out how to cut-paste with it.

davepjr71 03-13-2008 09:42 AM

RE: would this work?
 
That's a good question OH about his DL. From the picture I'd bet that bow is 28" and not 27".

You have to do a print screen command. "CTRL+ print Screen" and then past that into the picture softare you have. Then crop the picture accordingly. To post it you will have to compress the image and such.

4560's
Your call on arrow length. You have to shoot an arrow length that you are most comfortable with. The 30" arrow is definitely ok.

i think this setup would work...right?


davepjr71 03-16-2008 01:18 PM

RE: would this work?
 
So, you've figured out the DL is 28.25". That will definitely work.

The terminator lite is probably the same arrow as the Bass Pro arrows. Looks good.

The Carbon Fury arrows aren't bad, but they are heavy, with only a .006 straightness factor, but unless they've changed them a lot, they are pretty much a CX Terminator re-badged. I have a buddy that bought 2 dozen a couple years ago for $60 on sale, and he still has most of them, but he don't shoot very often either. But they aren't a bad shooting arrow.
