    So, I have a 60lb MR6 on the way. I will be shooting it around 60lbs maybe slightly more depending on where it maxes out at. I will be shooting it at 29″ draw. I plan to cut the arrows to 28 c2c running Blazers, wraps that weigh 5 grains, 20grain Nocturnal nocks, 125grain Grim Reapers. OT2 for Mac shows a .340 spine as being right with these specs using the target/hunting filter.

    I was debating between Beman ICS Speed which I can get in a .340 spine and the GT Velocity which would mean having to go to a .300 spine.

    My question is it seems I have read on here of many using a .300 spine with these bows. Am I missing something or should I go with what I am getting from OT2?

    Check out Black Eagle Arrows Carnivore line. You can get the spine your looking for and a very tough arrow to boot.

    They are worth a look at and customer service is great.

    I have heard a lot of good about the Black Eagle shafts but I have all the components/lighted nocks for the GT and Beman/Easton I will probably stick with one of them. I think I am going with the .340 spine based on what I am getting for numbers from OT2. .300 spine seems to show overly stiff.

    :D With the MR6..At 60Lb…Personally I would go with the .340 or .350 in other arrows…up to 65 lbs would be pushing the .340′s ..anything over 65 lbs a .300 would be needed..

    Thanks for the help. I am going to go with a .340 spine. The bow maxes out at 61lbs.

    I went a different direction than I anticipated and picked up some Carbon Force Radial x-weaves locally. The best pro-shop near me spoke highly of them and the guy who owns this small shop is great to work with. Wish he carried Mathews.

    He let me spin test and spine test in order to hand pick the dozen I wanted. Reviews seem positive on these so I’ll see how they work.

    Yea my first thought was, I can’t shoot these out of my Mathews. Then I decided if they are good and will kill deer what difference does the brand make :D
    My Existing components will work which was one requirement I had.
