Default correct arrow for #75 longbow....

I am getting different opinions about what type of aluminum arrow I should be shooting from my longbow (75lb) so I thought I would tap some of the experts in here. What say ye?

Even us alleged 'experts' need to know how long your arrows will be and what tip weight you're gonna use. I used to use 2219's with 125 gn tips on 75 pounders, but I doubt that'll do you any good if your draw length isn't 31"

Draw length is 29 - 29.5 inches (I am messing with both lengths currently).Tips will be chosen on whatever balances the arrow best (FOC).
This may all be a moot point though as the bow delaminated this afternoon. I think it is fixable. Hopefully the people at HH can fix it if it can't be done locally. I let a decent 8 pointer walk this a.m. at 14 yardscuz I couldn't focuswell enough on thechestwith the light conditions as they were while battling glare from the shoot thru cammo. Nice guys finish last. Time to dust off the Super Kodiak.

Having a bow delaminate sure does put a crimp in things. If you can get it back together, you're looking at probably 2216, maybe 2219.
