Hey fellas I'm pretty new here but have been shooting a traditional bow for about two years. I recently bought a stalker coyote 52# at 28" and I draw to 27" just wondering if anyone has a similiar set up and if they would enlighten me on the spine, point weight, length and overall weight. Right now I'm leaning toward a 400 spine 75 grain brass insert weight with a 150 grain broadhead. Thanks for any and all information!

I would lean towards a 500 28 in arrow

I shooter 500 spine full length from my bows same weight

I like a longer arrow to reduce my gaps. In my slick stick I'm shooting 500 spine 32" 187 grains up front and baresshafts group with fletched out to 30.

Id say you're going to be close--- you can shoot 225+ up front on a full length 400 and at your draw length and the stalker it may work or be just a bit stiff.

500 s would give you a bit of leeway in tuning and point weight. Just depends what you're shooting for gpp. Good luck.

How long do you want the arrows? How are you going to have it set up as far as amount of centershot goes? What kind of string do you have on it?

I'm guessing that unless you are shooting the .440's full length, and the sight window is bare maximizing centershot, those arrows are going to be stiff.

Your absolute best bet is to buy a test kit of arrows (.400, .500 and .600) cut to the length that you want to shoot and a test kit of various weights of field points. You will save a ton of money and frustration in the long run.

Really any suggestion that you get from here is a WAG.

What's a wag? Lol. I'd like to keep the rest that came on the bow on it. The bow is cut to 1/8th past center with a fuzzy kind of rest so I'm guessing it's more like 1/16 or dead on center. The black eagle trads i like to shoot come in 34" length I'd like to keep them between 30-32" long. My broadheads are all 150 grain but I have screw in insert weights of different sizes. Right now I have two bare shaft 500s I guess I could start with those and try different weights before I drop any more cash?

That's what I would do. I'd be very surprised if the .500's won't tune just fine.

As i said earlier, the 500s should give you a bit more room for tuning to get an arrow that should perform well at that poundage. If you like longer arrows and more weight i believe the 34" black eagles in 400 would work, but i think you'd find the trajectory something to be desired past 20 yds. Best to shoot for a finished gpp range and then go from there. I used the black eagles in my 40# bow and found the full length 500s tuned because of the added length. My goal was a 20 yard point on at the time and that arrow achieved it, but fell like a rock further out.

Good luck with your set up, I think 400 spine will be right for you and using several field point weights to get the best bareshaft flight. 250-225-200-175 for example

Thanks everyone! You're all a huge help. I'll get back and give and update when I find the right one.

30" .500 with 200 grains up front should do well for you. You get to 225 and you are still close. Go to 32"s and than stay down to 150-175 tops. A .400 at 32"s than 275 or a tad more up front. They are high performance bows so a tad stiffer arrow than most bows out there are required. Shawn
