presently shoot a 30# sage with 1535's at my 28" DL, work well once I played around with tip weight.

Now would you all think 3555 would be a good arrow shooting out off my 21"excell w/ 45 BM limbs? Was thinking of leaving them at 30" and playing with tip weights again.

Yes, they should work fine. I shoot them 30" long with 125 gr out of 45# bows at your draw.

I also shoot 30" 3555's, well recently anyway, out of my 38lb @ 27.5" draw.
My bareshafts are still kicking right (strong), I guess 3-4", but are right on with 3"/4 fletch feathers, 125gr FP. I just ordered some 145gr to see if I can get'em in line. I'm trying to follow the ACS guide as much as I can. Maybe it's my shorter DL? Any advice?
Thanks in advance,

Gary, the 145 points will help weaken the arrow, hopefully enough. If not, put 50 gr brass inserts in them with the 145s. They won't be super fast out of that bow though.

Try your current arrows first, they may surprise you.

I've Used them cut to 29" with 200g of weight up front, "pick your own recipe".
Shot from a 45lb longbow and a 50lb recurve at 28 1/2" draw with good results..

Is shoot them out of my 40lb longbow, currently only 100 gr point weight. They fly good and are my favorite for more robust targets.

Dang, these are better arrows than I thought lol. Looking forward to playing with them. For my part (not my thread) thanks to all.
