    I was gave 17 31 inch wolverine carbon express arrows 60-70lb. I read there 11gpi ,never had this stiff of vertical arrows. going to cut them down too 21 inch an slug them or get brass inserts for them to get the weight of at aleast 500gr an prefer 575 gr for my power bow.these should make the perfect arrow for everything. I love the small dia heavy vertical arrows in crossbows.just better all around as I see it

    I read there 342 spine at 28 inches so should be great around 20 inchs. my heritage arrows shot good in other high power bows an there 400 spine at 28 inches.

    That 11gpi is going to be a stiff arrow for sure.
    I like my arrows around 450grs depending on what game I'm chasing.

    I got them all done an squared up,ended up at 21-3/4 inch shafts. I made one test arrow up an it weights 500 gr. With aluminum inserts in both ends,125 tip ,bare shaft ready to shoot. I installed a Excalibur limb hold down bolt with the head removed behind the tip for weight an a snug fit .alittle more foc than I like ,but have no small arrows to slug with.i would much rather slug a arrow than add all the weight in the front when making heavy arrows .

    I doctored up these vertical arrows an fletched them,now 601gr with around 21 percent foc. I used small vertical arrow points ground down a little for a perfect fit ,screwed them into the front of my aluminum insert nock an put them in.i like using field tips screwed in my aluminum inserts for weight,both front an back .these should give magnum penetration out of high power bows .can,t wait to try them out with fletching, when bare shafts shoot great like these did,most times a very forgiving setup with great broadhead accuracy.

    I fletched these 20 inch slugged gt11 arrows an get 596gr. fletched. I going to test these 2 different arrows vs each other as they both shot great as bare shafts with about the same poi at 20yds. I like both but prefer small dia vertical arrows in all my bows.fat arrows are for target shooting on calm days,small dia arrows are for hunting anytime :p

    Frank, i have some easton acc 3-71 arrows that i have been playing around with for my suppressor. They shoot pretty nice. They are not near as heavy as those, and they are not slugged. ;):D

    Sounds good,these excaliburs shoot anything you put in them from my experience . just a personal thing as what you like an shoot.i like heavy arrows in power bows because it slows them down an that,s the best way to tame the beast an cut down on vibration .turns a tiger into a puddy cat with big teeth,claws :p
