    Looking for suggestions on a hunting setup for my chill X (28/70) with 75% rock mods. I’ve been shooting black eagle carnivores (350s @ 27.5 inches) out of my creed but have fell in love with the X so its going to be my hunting rig this year. I would like to do a slightly heavier setup for whitetails. So, my question is do I stay with carnivores and drop to a 300 spine or move to zombie slayers and stay at 350s?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    http://carbonexpressarrows.com/sites/default/files/CX_HuntingArrow_ShaftGuide.pdf When I run your number on the Bow adjusted draw weight chart I come up with 78# or 80#. I run that down the 28″ arrow chart on the BE selection guide  http://www.blackeaglearrows.com/arrowsizingchart-a/254.htm  and I see a .300 spine is what you should be considering. Hope this helps. The Carnivore 300 are a very well made arrow and I also like the deep impacts in a .300 spine.

    Sorry to hijack but how is the durability of the Black Eagle Carnivore as compared to say the Gold Tip XT Hunters? How about spine consistency?

    I’ve used both and can say that the longevity is similar to the XT Hunters.
