Default Arrow Selection

I currently have the Destroyer 350 set at 29" draw and 60lb draw weight with the IQ Retina sight and Trophy Ridge Evolution rest. This is my first bow and I have 3 different arrows all set at 30" and use 100grain field point tips: Easton Axis N-Fused HIT 400-9.8gpi, FMJ 400-10.2gpi and Gold Tip XT hunter 5575-8.2gpi. I just bought the FMJ because I broke majority of my Axis HITS. I didn't like the way the Gold Tips flew out of my bow because they were way lighter than my HITS. I would like for my bow to shoot fast with a lot of kinetic energy. If anyone knows of an arrow in mind or if I currently have one please let me know or if I need to shorten my arrow. I don't fully understand Spine Span or Spine Deflection or Static or Dynamic Spine.

Just going by the Easton arrow selection chart, looks like you should be using the Axis N-Fused 340's. Excellent arrows. I've had pass throughs on deer, elk, and penetrated a steel fence post after a missfire and still use that arrow!
If the Trophy Ridge Revolution rest requires an extra inch for peak performance, then stay with 30" shafts. Personally (I hunt in wind conditions) I am a huge fan of the 2" Blazer fletches.

Gold Tip Velocity Hunter 400's if you are looking for performance and durability. these at 30" would put you with an approximate 360 grain finished arrow. you can also pick these up at Bass Pro for around $75-$80 a dozen.

i hunt with the 300's and love them. they are fast and true!

TR Revolution does not. my arrows are cut right at my rest when my bow is drawn back to the wall. i have a 30.5" draw length and shooting a 29" arrow (carbon to carbon) with no problems.
