Jim,

I am also shooting fairly light bows at 40# and 45#. My draw length is just about 30″, and I am using some 400 and 500 spine Carbon express shafts which will both work. I have about 300 grains on the front of the 400’s and they fly pretty good from the Super K at 45#. I have not paper tuned them, but just watching them fly I am happy enough with them. The 500’s work well from my 40# Ben Pearson and Bear recurves, with around 225-250 grains up front.

Hold off on that dozen, maybe get a sampling and work up your own secret weapons.
