Default Need Help with finding the Right Spined Arrows

Well I told everyone I'd start picking your brains. I am currently shooting a 62" Locksley Puma pulling 40lbs @ 28" (My draw is 29" so I figured i'd be pulling 42 or 43lbs) Here is my dilema. I have tried every type of arrow I own and basically have found that the only arrows that seem to fly decent are some 28" 2114 Easton Camo Hunter XX75's in 2114 and someold 29" 1916 Easton XX75 Autum Orange aluminums. I've tried both of these with 100gr and 125gr points. But I really would like to shoot carbons. Maybe either the glod tip traditional or the carbon express heritage. I tried my 29" 4560 Carbon express Terminators and my 27" 5575 Gold tip XT hunters with many different point sizes and they seemed over spined. Heck i even managed to get my hands on some gold tip traditional 3555's and they didn't even fly nice and straight.

So my question is could someone reccomend a spine size and arrow length that could possibly fly better out of my bow, I wouldn't even be opposed to shooting the easton Heritage aluminum heritage shafts as long as they flew good. I've looked at the spine charts and I always seem to come up with an overspined arrow. And I'm no newbie when it comes to picking arrows and reading a spine chart, but this is just giving me fits. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try the spine chart in the link below. It is much more accurate for Traditional Bows:

Thanks Bob that site has some very good info. It seems that the optimum should be 1816 for my bow. But maybe I can get away with 1916. Now what arrow length would you guys suggest? And what about those carbons could anyone help with a size for them?

Only thing that is gonna help those carbons shoot better is a bunch more weight up front.

I'm shooting the CE Terminators out of a 45# @ 28" bow, 29" length arrow with 250 grains up front (125 grain screw in adapter and 125 grain Wensel Woodsman).

If you wanna try a cheap test, got to the hardware store and get a 2.2.75" 8/32 thread bolt and a bunch of the same sized nuts. Screw 10-11 of the nuts on the bolt, then screw it into your carbons. If I remember right, this weighed out right at 250-260 grains. Really packs a whallop
