    Would a 340 arrow shoot that different from a 300? I shot 340s in an bow that was 29/70. Got a newer bow that is 29/67 (but a little faster than the older bow) and it came with 300s and they do shoot good. Just have an abundance of 340s and they are also easier to come by it seems. Of course, I know, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Just wanted opinions from knowledgeable folks and if you get too technical I won’t know what the h3ll you’re talking about :(.

    Assuming your arrows are Gold Tips, I'd shoot the 340's, unless you are shooting 150 grain points/broadheads. There is plenty of difference in shooting an arrow that is too stiff, or too weak, in spine deflection.

    I agree with Keith and it is even more critical when you put a broadhead on your arrows. I would Check the weight chart for your brand of arrow and use what is listed for your draw weight and arrow lenght.

    Thanks! Like I said, “If it ain’t broke...”. I just didn’t think there would be a huge difference so maybe I’ll sling an arrow and see. Yes they are Gold Tips and the 300s are the 22 series which aren’t cheap that came with the bow. That’s one reason why I’d like to consider another arrow. I shoot 100 gr broadhead.

    I keep forgetting pse x weaves which I shoot , are opposite number wise for weight / spine from other arrows
