I have the exact same bow, same weight, and same draw length and I'm shooting Gold Tip XT Hunters 7595 with 100 grain Rage Broad heads. Combo works good for me.

Here is Gold Tips arrow chart: http://www.goldtip.com/arrowcontent.aspx?page=chart

Check out a cabela's catalog and they usually have a chart in there that will tell you what size you should be shooting.

I shot Beaman ICS Hunter 500's for years because that's what my local archery shop said was right. Then i was looking in the Cabela's catalog and saw that I should of been shooting the 400's all along. Check the chart out. You won't be sorry because you'll know if your getting the correct ones.

Well the arrows are 295.8 gr per 29" and my arrows are 30", so the arrow is around 310 gr plus the 100 gr broad head = 410gr. Does that sound right? lol

65 lbs X 5 = 325 (Minium weight) so I guess 410 gr is about right.

Just look at the chart on the box of arrows. Can't make it much simpler than that.

With that set up the Gold Tip 7595 should work great. I shoot the same ones out of my Mathews Chill @ 63# and 28 1/2" draw.
