Wish Gold Tipís chart would tell folks that instead of what they do .
Iíve always shot 2016ís but at a higher poundage. With heavy points and with a little tuning on the bow , Iíve been able to group pretty decent with my old faithfuls .
The aluminum shafts I have on order are 1816ís . I plan on leaving them at their full length of 30Ē and play with point weights .
Wish I could at least handle 40# , I would stay with the 2016ís .
I donít plan on shooting much past 25-30 yards and have been doing pretty good at those ranges with the 2016ís , on my good days.

I got my GT Trad 500 spine shafts this morning. Fletched up six and while the last two were drying , I grabbed a bow and gave them a try .
The bow was a White Feather Lark Riser with WNS Glass/Bamboo limbs that on my scale pulls 30# @28” .
After a few warm up shots , I can report , I’m happy the the results .
After a few rounds of 4 shots , I swapped bows .
I then tried a Samick Discovery riser also with WNS G/B limbs , two pounds lighter . This combo is pulling right at 28#@28” .
Although I only shot two groups with this bow @ 15-16 yards , I think I can say the 500 GT’s Are going to work out just fine for me .
I was using 150g screw in points .
I should probably look around for some extra nocks to keep on hand .
The one o’clock arrow in the red was me not the arrows.

Close grouping with incorrect spine means nothing.

Means the arrows are hitting where I want them to .
Means I’m happy with them because they perform the way I want them to .
Also means the shafts won’t be used as tomato stakes .
Have a nice day !

I got my 1816 shafts today .
Fletched up three of them with five inch RW feathers ( my 4” ones haven’t arrived yet) added some AAE 9/32 nocks, glued in the inserts and added 125g screw in combo points .
Tried them in my 28# Discovery Combo and was impressed . I think I only had 2 or 3 outside of the gold from 15 out to 25 yards .
I think they may outshoot the carbons . But I like the feel of the carbons .
They feel more like wood , but stay straight .
Shooting them 30” full length .

You will find aluminum more forgiving.
But carbon is way more popular across the sport.
For a hunting arrow where weight is more critical, aluminum is hard to beat.
