50 at 30 shooting full length 2016s.

I want 200 gns or so up front.

Do I need a stiffer arrow?


It ain't easy being me.

I don't think so, I shoot 55@ 28 with 200 up front and use gold tip 55/75 traditional arrows. For sure you don't want too stiff of an arrow with your trad.

Some of the "Physicist/Scientist" on another page disagree but I shoot good enough using 2016s with 135 and 170 zwickeys. Im probably a little over 500gns total and not interested in all the science involved in tuning to perfection. That's why I put my compounds up.

I agree 100%; I shoot both trads and compounds but I sure don't listen to the trend, been doing it longer than most of them have been alive.

As long as your arrow is flying straight all the science and "He said She said" stuff is irrelevant. I shoot full length 55/75 with anywhere from 125 grain Magnus to 190 grain Simmons heads and other than adding insert Wts I'm good.

Like the others I think you will be fine with those. Way to know for sure is to try it.
