Arrow advice - Dlaux

Ordered a PSAII at the beginning of April (which I'm "patiently" waiting to get my hands on). I ordered it 51#@27.5". Need some advice on arrows. I'm thinking Gold Tip 35/55's with weight tubes to get the weight up to what I need. Is this a good choice? I've been a compound shooter most of my life, but relatively new to traditional bows.

They are pretty slow on answering questions on here it seems. But, I'm thinking you would be better off with some 55/75's. My LAG is 54# @ 27 and I shot some 55/75's yesterday and they flew great. If I was a carbon arrow guy I'd shoot them myself but I'm into the woodies. :)

Thanks for the help. I'm debating on 3555's and 5575's. The weighted tubes are 5 gr per inch. My draw length is pretty short so I figured the 3555's cut to about 28.5 would be about right. How long were the 5575's you shot?

I have a PSA III 45@29. Use 3555s with 145gr points. Shaft is 30" I agree with Timberking. Probably best to go with 5575s at your draw weight unless you add weight at the back end of 3555s to stiffen spine. You will love your PSA!

Finally got the bow in and have been playing with it for several days. The 5575's seem to work well cut to about 29.5 and adding about 70 gr to the nose and about 20 to the tail (nock adapter with no weight). Gets the arrow weight up and they fly good. Thanks for the help.

I just got a 5575 test shaft along with a CE350 to try tuning. The CE250 didn't work out well. I hope to be able to make the 5575s work well at about 10 gpp total. My PSA is 52# @ 27".

Follow Ken Beck's tuning method. That's what I did and it worked very well.

Well the CR 350 seems to work much better at about 29.5 inches with about 225 grains up front. I'll try out the GT over the weekend. I like the ability to add weight to both front and nock ends.

I have a 58" PTF 50# @ 27", and shoot Gold Tip 5575's. I bought the Gold Tip Test Arrows and spent alot of time adjusting and tinkering. The 7595 and 1535 shafts were ruled out quickly. The 3555 would have worked I think, but I wanted a heavier shaft. Two arrows shot very well: 27" 5575 with nock adapter with no add'l weight, and 70 gr weight up front with 125 gr points. The other 28.5" 5575 with 70 gr up front and 125 gr field points, no nock adapter. I have settled with the 28.5" arrow. Remember feathers, nock and arrow wraps add weight to rear. Total weight for my arrow is 507 gr.

Thanks. I'm curious - how do you shoot a 27" arrow if your draw is 27"?

Forgive me...the shaft was 27" + nock adapter + nock added another one inch for 28". However, the arrow was short and I ended up using the 28.5" shaft + nock for 29" total.
