im shooting gold tip 5575 with about the same poundage and my arrows aren't whipping, maybe the spine of your arrow is to stiff or not stiff enough. my answer might not be correct though. im sure you'll get tons of answers on this.

might be one of yer arrows is cracked er bent. maybe the fetching...could be the nock is turned wrong and the fl etchings hittin the rest er something. if it does it every 5 shots, i say user error or equipment malfunction.

That's my thought too -- mark or number your arrows (just use a Sharpie to put a number on one of the fletchings) and determine if it is the same arrow that's going wonky on you. If it is, then trash that arrow and carry on. If it's a different arrow everytime, well, I'll let someone else chime in on that.

I would guess its either your Fletching or a maybe a dented field point or broadhead. If its every arrow i would check your rest alignment. Check the minute details a differences between poor arrow and correct ones.

certainly could be a bad arrow, fletch contact or a torn/loose fletch. If you haven't paper tuned, I'd suggest doing that to make sure your bow is tuned and the arrows are leaving the rest true.
Might be a form issue as well. Every now and then you're maybe torqueing the bow.
