Default Spine Me Some Arrows

I was wondering if someone could give me some arrow reccomendations.

I am shooting an 82nd Airborne 70lbs at 29 inches.
I usually shoot 29 1/2 inch arrows with a 125 grain head but would be happy to drop down to 29, would prefer to stay with the 125grain head.
Have been shooting FMJ 300's but have recently found they are underspined.

Open to different manufacturers but Easton are easy to get here in New Zealand.
I dont mind full carbon or carbon aluminium.


Thanks

A 300 spine is not underspined for your specs. In fact, it's what I'd recommend. You might even get away with a 340 spine, but 300's should be just fine. I don't know who told you so, but they are dead wrong.

Thanks.

It was running the set up through software (straight shooter I think) that said it was underspined.
I think I will continue using what I have and do some paper tuning etc once I am in need of new arrows.

Thanks again.

my .300 spined blackhawks were SLIGHTLY underspined at 70 lbs, 30" draw on my 82nd, but are just about perfect at 68 lbs.
