Went from a 403gr arrow at 329-330fps to a 568gr arrow at 280-281fps and am much happier with it. Heavier arrows tend to do much better on longer shots as well.
Basically, spend the money and be happy vs going in circles. I’ll do 5mm FMJs next go round because of availability.
This.

Blue Fin Charters Not a knock on bass pro or Cabbelas but I prefer to go to bow shop in Santa Fe. They are a small shop and are very knowledgeable. They will steer you in right direction that will not break the bank.

That being said find what you and your bow like and go with that. As long as they are straight and have a decent F.O.C. you will be good to go.

Main Frame 8 Been using Easton XX75 2213's for as long as I can recall. If they don't hit their mark, it's not their fault. Only mod I ever made was using Quick Spin vanes (shrink wrap variety). I'm open to trying something new but I tend to only use bow during bow season so haven't really been motivated to change what's not failed me. Then again, I shoot a package bow from Bass Pro (Redhead Chronic). Added a D-loop and Rip cord drop away rest (don't care for whisker biscuit). Switched to a thumb release this year that I really like for the hands free functionality (Tru Ball Max Hunter Pro 4).


If you can get a $5 arrow with sharp broad heads that group well, you've got a winner.
