Easton bloodline arrows for Bowtech insanity

Postby Beretta686 » Mon Dec 03, 2012 9:32 pm

Halo
I have 6 Bloodline arrows 330 spine cut to 28". The arrows are 398 grains in total weight. My question is will i be able to shoot these arrows out of a bowtech insanity, 75 lb, 28 draw length without the arrow shattering? I really like the arrows and was wondering if i used a 125 grain point increasing the weight to about 420 grains, will the spine be strong enough for 80 lb at 28" draw?

thank you for your input.

I think you are marginally on your spine with your current setup.

If you want to crank up the pounds, I would suggest you start now with 300 spine arrows, or even 250 or 200 spines.

I agree with SV Mad, I found the 300 spine arrows was weak on my 80lb Omen and I recon that you may find the same on your insanity, espcially if you want to increase your FOC.

Thank you for replying.

My friend told me that i should try the Easton Powerflight 300 spine, 9.5 GPI cut to 28 inch cut for a total of 420 grains. Would this be a better choice for shooting a insanity set at 28" draw and 70-80lb?

I like the lighter arrows for speed :lol:

I shoot Easton St Axxis N-Fused 300 spine in my Maxxis 31 @ 70lb and they shoot great. I also use the 75gr HIT insert and have a arrow weight of +/- 550gr

Then when I got my Vector Turbo 80lb I noticed that the arrows just not wanted to group and I had endless problems.

Then I purchused GT Big Game Huntes 200 for my 80lb bow. Build up the arrows with the 75gr HIT insert and 5gpi weight tubes and got a arrow of +/- 700gr. The bow performs great @ 82lb and I get a great grouping and got a speed of 250fps.

My 300 spine arrows with the 75gr insert and 125gr FP just did not want to work and I was not prepared to go and change al my BH to 100gr seeing that I have good couple of them.

Maybe get yourself 3 200 spine arrows and test them. This way you will know if they work. You should be able to get a arrow of +/- 550gr with the GT if you do not use the 75gr HIT insert
