Default Help with new arrows

I'm looking for newer hevier arrows for next deer season. I'm shooting a buckmaster btr 32. It's a cheap bow I bought about two years ago just to see if I liked bowhunting or not.......now I'm Hooked! I was shooting beman ics hunter 500s with 28 inch 7.3gpi arrows....not very great penetration so i'm wanting to change. It's draw weight is set at about 55 and I'm planning on moving it up to somewhere between 60-70. Since I'm moving up the draw weight I'm going to have to get new arrows anyway. What arrows and gpi would you guys recommend for this setup?

I shoot Easton ACC's 3-60. I shot ICS's for long time. Worked well, but broke easily. Wasn't very consistent. But good arrow for 50 dollar arrows.


As long as your over 400gr, it really doesn't matter for whitetail. I would move up to 500gr setup for elk.

Thanks, that's what I needed to hear about the weight. What arrows do the rest of you guys use?

I shoot 70lbs with Gold Tip XTHunter 5595. At 30" they are 409.5 grains. Shoots great and very durable. Haven't broken any yet, and I've got about 100 shots through each arrow.

I would recommend Gold Tip 5575 arrows for your set up. And 125 gr cut on contact broadheads to give you the ultimate in penetration. As for the arrows - you can usually pick up blemished ones on Ebay pretty cheap. I shoot 66# @ 28" with my Martin Firecat usint the GT 5575 and 125 gr Muzzy Phantoms or Magnus Stingers. This is my big critter bow (bear, bison, moose). For whitetails I shoot GT 4565s @ 28" with 100 gr Magnus Stingers from my Martin Cheetah set at 57#.
