If they ain’t sturdy, then I don’t want them. Thanks for the info.I was going to try the RIP XV, but everyone I heard of using them (Brent from Valkyrie, a couple others on Kifarucast a while back?) said they broke very easily on any kind of an angled impact. Extremely brittle shafts. I'm shooting the X-Impacts right now, and they've been great in terms of durability. They're probably as light as I'd go.
The BE Carnivores are a really good choice. Very tough for how light they are. Also I find them to be consistently straighter than what they are spec’d at.Never shot them. I'm using BE Carnivore right now for hunting shafts. They are a lighter gpi shaft, haven't had durability issues. They are also a "standard" size .246. Easy to find components for.

It has to do with FOC and arrow length. For instance I have a 29.5" carbon to carbon arrow. running a GT pierce at 9.3 gpi and all my other stuff in a 300 gets me at about 9.5% FOC and I'm dead perfect on the spine. I would really rather be a little stiff. If I go to a 250 spine at 9.9 gpi my FOC falls to 9.25 with all the same componets but the arrow is now 500 grains instead of 480 and the FOC is worse.i dont know much but this is the first time ive ever heard someone wanting the lowest gpi arrow.
