New Hunting Arrow Build #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Im looking to build some new arrows for this season. I mainly hunt Whitetail and turkey with the hopes of going out west for elk soon. I’m on a budget so was looking at the Goldtip Hunter XTs due to price and the Fact weight system, I want 15%+ FOC with 125 grain broad-heads. Im shooting around 65lbs at 28 1/2in draw out of a Hoyt Faktor 30, so I will probably go with 350-340 spine at 28 inch’s depending on the weight upfront. Any suggestions or opinions on arrows, builds, and broad-heads are welcomed.

Spine variance- Same spine but different arrow models. #archery

So this is probably just a rookie mistake but I need someone to confirm this… was shooting gamegetters by Easton (2217) and got them tuned nicely at 28” length. Broke a few and went to my local shop to replace them and could only find Easton fall stalkers but same spine (2217) .bring them home and cut them to length and they are acting way too stiff. Is it normal for a different arrow model to act differently if they have the same shaft size?

High FOC Build for Short Draw, Low Draw Weight, Short Arrow length #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Looking for some advice. This topic has probably been talked about religiously and I don’t want to beat the dead horse, but I’m struggling to find a concrete answer. Here are the specs for my bow and arrows:

Bow Specs:

– Mathews Triax
– Drawlength: 28"
– Draw weight: 61.8 lb (max)

Arrow Specs:

– Length: 26.75′
– Insert Weight: 110 grains
– Outsert Weight: 70 grains
– Broad Head Weight: 100 grains
– 3 Fletch Blazers: 18 grains
– Wrap Weight: 5 grains
– Lighted Nock Weight: 20 grains

Depending on the arrow I choose the shoot, I’ll be right around 550 grains.

My question is, with such a short arrow and low poundage, will I be okay shooting a lower spined arrow? Like a 350 spined arrow. Or should I bump up to a 300 spine or higher?

This is my first time building a high FOC arrow so any advise is welcome.

Thanks in advanced!

Adding weight to arrow #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Looking to increase arrow weight with current arrows. Current setup is hoyt alphamax 35 with 27" draw length and pulling 65lbs. Arrows are gold tip hunter pro 340 8.9gpi. Arrows are 27.5" from nock grove to end of shaft. Arrows currently weigh 400. Would it be best just to add the weight to the gold tip insert? Was thinking about adding 50 grains to get too 450ish. Or will I need to get different arrows? Thanks

I get bullet holes shooting bare shafts through paper at 15′ but there is typically a less than perfect bullet hole when shooting a fletched arrow through paper. The blade on the rest is a standard .010 which I have ground down at the tip to reduce potential contact issues but when spraying foot powder on the fletching there are always lines from the tip of the rest which can vary somewhat, depending upon nock orientation. I have tried various nock orientations but contact always occurs. Should I try a .008 blade?

The top fletching was shot through paper, accounting for the missing powder on the perimeter of the fletching while the second picture was shot straight into the target, sans paper. Comparing the two it can be seen the interference is not consistent but the nocks may be oriented slightly different from each other.

I appreciate any help you can lend.

Phil

This is gonna look ugly but my question is very specific.

WILL SPINE INDEXING YOUR ARROW SHOW THIS MUCH VARIATION ON PAPER?

I’ve been having more troubles tuning my Triax (previous post about crazy high poundage).

Setup:
28" draw
75 lb peak weight
Easton axis 300 match grade, 27.25" carbon to carbon,
Arrow 480 grain total, 100 point, 50 insert.

My groupings have been terrible past 30 and I suspect improper arrow flight.

Took a bare shaft to paper and after making some adjustments I was finding the arrow shot better nocked one way that the other. You can see by the picture the tears labeled "1" were oriented in one way and a "2" oriented the other way. You can see the tear goes nock right on the 2’s.

I know there is still significant tear on both orientations but the difference was repeatable.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance

Where do you guys cut your hunting arrows?
Shooting a limb driven rest. I was always cutting them at the front of the bow, looks like some guys cut them much shorter now, back over the arrow shelf. I’m shooting compact fixed blades and expandable. That the norm now to cut them back by the Berger hole?
That would help my foc some and help when loading up some brass on an arrow build.
