Here’s the deal. Arrow performance is all about matching the spine of that arrow to your bow’s setup. A savvy shop will know that three things should be considered when choosing an arrow with an ideal spine for your new rig, and those things are bow poundage, arrow weight, and point weight. From there, they can help you pick a spine (the shaft’s propensity to bending when force is applied) that fits your bow. It doesn’t matter what arrow you’re shooting. If you’re over- or under-spined, you’ll never shoot as accurately as you would with a properly-spined arrow. If you’re looking for an economical carbon shaft, let your dealer know that, and make sure they help you find one—because mostly every arrow brand offers them, and they shoot just fine.
