Choosing Right Arrows

2 posts in this topic

I shoot a BowTech Guradian and have been having problems with a 07 Commander and 07 Guardian where the mods on the cams strip out after only a few shots. Working with my pro shop I have sent them back to BowTech and they all received a clean bill of health yet I am going through them like water.

My Setup:

30.5" draw (CP.5 mods)

29 inch arrows CE Maxima & CE Maxima Hunter

70 lb draw weight

My review of the Adjusted Weight Chart on CE's site along with using their Hunting Arrows Selection Guide puts me in a TR7590 and not a MAX350.

I don't know a lot about this since I have never had problems like this before so I am trying to solicit feedback anywhere I can. I am not sure the guys I am working with understand what is causing the problems (since they cannot resolve it on 2 bows) so I am taking it upon myself to try to understand GPI, Spine, and everything else.

Thanks to anyone who can offer me some insight into proper arrow selection. I always thought CE Maxima 350s would be fine.

I shoot 70 lbs as well, and I shoot a fairly stiff arrow. I forget the model number right now of the arrows I shoot, but I know that you would want something with a bit stiffer spine as well, it will help to eliminate in flight wobble of the arrow, which can effect point of impact due to improper flight.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
