    I have a 06 Switchback XT 28″, draw set at 61#, a D-loop, 28″ arrows, and 100 gr. tips and was wondering which arrows would be best for my setup. I was looking at the Gold Tip XT Hunter 5575, Beman ICS Hunter 400, and Radial X-Weave Predators. I will be doing mostly hunting and some 3-D. Thanks in advance!

    :D I shoot a Predator 300 for everything. The spine matches the Dren @ 70# perfectly. A bare shaft is grouped right in there with the fletched ones. Now last year with the switchback @ 65# they were alittle to stiff. I have them cut to 27.25″ 26″ 2gpi tubes 3″ duravanes (R Helical) 100g points. The arrow wt is 414.25g putting it 64.25g over the minimum. I like being over the limit. I know a lot of guys shoot 350g, I did it with an FX a few years ago and the string was toast in under 500 arrows. But it’s what you are comfortable with. Comfort and confidence mean a lot. Once you get the spine matched to the bow the truer the arrow flight and the faster the arrow, Good luck. :thumbup :thumbup

    Your set-up is very close to mine. I vote for none of the above.
    Carbon Tech Cheetah. Check the signature…
    325 gr. is with an 85 gr. tip, 340 gr. is 100 gr. tip

    While GT’s are excellent arrows, I feel that PSE Radial X Weaves are better. I have a mixed bag this year for arrows, I am using GT Pro Hunters and Radial X Weaves. I still like the X Weaves for the money, and they IMO have slightly better tolerances (real, not on paper). I have never been a fan of Easton nor Beman products, so they are not anywhere close to the top of my list for arrows! [=}=]
