Default Best 3D arrows for my 45 lb recurve.

Picked up a new bow and I am going to "compete" in 3D this year. What in you HO is the best 3D arrow to use for my 45@29 off the shelf recurve.

I second Gold Tips, but I woul;d go with the Ultralight Entrada in a .500 spine....leave them long, use a 100gn point with a 20 gn insert weight. I personally shoot these and they are GREAT!! You can get them at a great price from FS Discount Archery.

Easton lightspeed 3D would be my recommendation.

I don't know what recurve you have, that will matter. If you are going for speed with a light tip you can shoot a 3555 with high performance limbs. If I put more than 100 grains up front on a 3555 my DAS with Winex limbs at 42# will turn a bare shaft sideways.

Light speed 3-d's are good, as are some of the other arrows mentioned...I've shot Gold Tip 35/55's, and Entrada's...Litespeeds, and Victory's...But....For price, toughness, consistency, availability, ease of exchanging components, and toughness, no other arrows I've shot can compare to PSE Radial X-WEAVES...None!...There are better arrows, and cheaper arrows, but no better arrow for the $$$....Just my Opinions.......Take Care.....Jim

If you're 'serious', you may want to consider a 2114 xx75, or one of the FAT carbon shafts, easton fatboy or beman makes one. They will cut a line every now and then that the skinny carbons won't. Especially when you can count the center 12's.

I like lightspeeds for 500 spine and carbon ones for 600 spine.

2114 xx75,
Tried some old X7 2114s today but it was too windy to get any results. May fix them up you know black fletch, black nocks, invisible in the target.

I've thought about the same thing, except I was going to go with a brown.

I also like Easton Lightspeed's in 500's, I like the 600's in Victory Nano.
I only have a few left of the 550 CE Medallions but these are great too, I think I will search for some of them next time I need darts.

I wouldn't even consider shooting anything else than Easton ACE. The best possible quality and the ligthest of them all. Much better in the wind than the
"fat shafts". Only downside is price but they are pretty durable too.
