So i have a Stik longbow by RichEmery. 44@29.5". I like a 31.5" arrow and shoot 145 grain Bear Razoheads. Looking for carbon arrow suggestions for this setup. Been using aluminum 2016 but just got a gift card to Three Rivers for Christmas. Any ideas? ,

500 is the equivalent. But 600's will work better imo

I’d go with the 600s; if you can’t get where you want to be by lightening your points, you can always build out your side plate or cut ‘em back a touch... or if all else fails, there’s most likely somebody here who has some 500s that are too stiff for them to work with...

.400 spine carbon at that arrow length.

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

I think.500s as well, particularly if you go with a skinny shaft i.e, 8/32 (5 mm) like an Easton Axis. .600s probably a bit better if you go with 5/16 GTs or equivalent. .

You will have a hard time finding a .600 over 30"s. The ones that are that long are real pricey. I think a .500 with a bit more weight up front will be fine. Use a 50 grain brass insert to get ya up to 200 grains or so and you should be fine. Shawn

To use those heads you will probably need to cut 500's back to around 29". That seem to work well on all my bows in that weight range when bare shafting.

Arrow length isn't as important as draw length except for aiming purposes.

Full length 500 will work perfect. Come on, this really is not rocket science.
