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.

    • This might be one of the reasons. 
    • Are the majority of United States citizens too dumb to vote?  A great mantle of responsibility has been placed upon us.  Are we capable?    I shudder every time I contemplate this.     
    • Ended up with one bird on public ground western meeker County Friday afternoon. Saturday the pooch put up 6 birds for us in the morning in swift co with hardly a breeze and all I could do was tickle 1 bird, not very proud of that.  This morning the wind was howling which made the birds jumpy but managed a couple.  We pounded a lot of gravel and didn't see much at all, but then again lots of corn still in.
    • I had military mickeys for years... and years but about 2 years ago I bought Baffin's. AWESOME boots. Sooooooo comfy, warm and decently light. I own Muck's and they are great for more "active" fishing as my feet get cold in them if I just sit one the ice all day. That said, you CAN walk all day in mucks. The comment about Baffin's being large and unable to get pants over...very true! But a great boot none the less.
    • maybe Eve got it!?!?
    • No......but "brexit" was polling within the 4 percent margin of error before the vote . Cant imagine any one of those 272 in the 8 percent  and above range flipping.  Suppose anything is possible, couldn't ever imagine Trump being considered a serious candidate either. 
    • These the same reputable folks that said Brexit was going to lose by a significant margin?
    • So, you are voting Trump?  Or are you going for Gary Johnson?
    • According to the most reputable poll trackers, with a couple weeks to go looks like Hilldawg already has 272 solid votes....... with Trump only at 127. The swing states currently within a 4 ish percent margin of error are Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and Texas. Weird saying Texas and Georgia are swing states and got believe will go to Trump. For fun am also going to give him Arizona, Iowa, and Ohio.......leaving him 216......and 322 for our next first lady.
