Default Would I be underspined?

The bow is a Parker Blackhawk

DL- 29
arrow is CX eliminator hunter 250 at 28 inches.

Right now the dw is 63 pounds and the pro shop guy said that would be good for it but if i cranked it up a couple pounds would this arrow still be alright or would I need to get some more?

I would advise going stiffer- many of the Parker single cam bows have pretty poor nock travel- a stiff arrow should help, and def would if you are "borderline" for spine at the moment.

JeffB (or anyone else)

What do you mean by " poor nock travel?"

What Jeff is referring to is that the arrow does not travel in a level fashion while nocked on the string upon release. This puts more side load/bend force on an arrow requiring a stiffer spine.

I know what he means I dropped the weight a couple pounds down to around 60 61 so hopefully that might help it a little bit. What I was talking about was the weight of these arrows. I cant find any specs on them anywhere on the net. I would just like to know about how heavy the arrow is I am shooting but am having bad luck with finding anything about these arrows.
