GOLD TIP BEARPAW SHAFTS - Sandman

Does any one shoot this shaft?I want to try shooting carbon shafts but don't want to deal with adding weights to the inserts.I just ordered a PCH at 45# and the shaft they recommend weighs in at 13gpi,I was wanting to hit the 500 grain mark so this shaft would make weight easy just wondering if any wallers have any field time with it?

Dave if your draw weight is in the 60# range you can use the 320's they are 15.3 gpi .You should make weight with that shaft.You might already know this but just thought I would throw this at you.Kinda pricey too ,that's why I was hoping someone had some shooting time with them.

I have a 43# PSR and I ordered the regular Gold Tips 3555 and with the weight system you should be able to tune them over 500 grains, at 580 grains mine fly like darts but run out of energy quicker. I would use the screw in weights to tune my arrow and go with regular shafts, cuz out of your bow the weakest spine they have for the Heavy Hunters is the 500s and I am sure you will need to tune them and they will be at least 700 grains, pretty heavy for 45# bow. My opinion get the regular 500s with the tune-able brass inserts and nocks and a few of the tuning weights and you will easily hit that 500 grain mark regular gold tips. you can also try to bare shaft tune the 500 spine of the regulars or the HH, they sell regular tuning shafts and fletched arrows here. I would tune with a 150 grain field point cuz screw in broad heads for trad bows are easier to get in the 150 grains. I think with a Brass insert you should hit around 540 grains to start. Im sure Roger could help you tuning your arrows and there is a web site that has info on tuning carbon arrows, look that up first. The Gold Tip weight system or triming a bare shaft down 1/4" at a time is really the best way to tune them.

PS read up on tuning carbon arrows and ask some questions cuz I really did not want to have my arrows come out 580 grains for a 43# bow.

Its really not that hard to tune them you just have to know what you have to do to tune them. I am one that cant really explain it!!

Byron gave me a half dozen heavy hunters several months ago. They are a very good shaft that is nearly indestructible. Mine are the 400,I shoot them out of a 57# PL. With 125 grain tip and 5 inch feathers they weight 640 grains. They are not my primary arrow. I like to shoot wood shafts the best. The carbon express heritage are my favorite carbon shaft.
