    Trying to find out about proper arrow weight for my bow. It is a Mathews ZXT with 70# and 29″ draw. It has a QAD Ultra-Rest Pro HD Drop Away Rest. I currently have Gold tip Pro hunter 7595 black arrows and using 100 grain 2 blade Rage broadheads. From some of the posts I’ve been reading, I think my arrows may be light. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Pat

    First off it sounds like you are referring to the spine of the arrow or stiffness compared to the actual total grains it measures out at.

    Weight is not as important as proper spine but weight does matter. Have you measured how much you finished arrows weigh?

    The GT 7595 I would think are not the proper spine and are a bit weak or not stiff enough. If you are at the 70# and at 29″ draw most charts would bout you into the 300 spine shafts where the 7595 are 350 spine shaft.

    pkorando if you use the link above it will take you to Carbon Express adjusted draw weight chart and if I did the math correctly your final weight is like 85#.
    Then if you use this link below to CE to see what shafts fit your setup.

    Then you can see from there what shaft makes the most sense and to me it is a .300 spined arrow. You then can go to Gold Tips web site to see what they have in a 300 spine or any other arrow manufacturer to see what they offer. Black Eagle is one that has that size shaft available in several of their lines. Easton has some as well. You can see what you want or get a hold of Jerry at Southshore Archery and can set you up with custom arrows.
