I switched from a BowTech Tomcat to a Bear Montana #50 and it was a challenge. But, an enjoyable one. I was shooting Gold Tip 3555 with a 125 payload from the Montana and I am in the process of swithching to wood arrows (and building them from components). So far I have found that the best spine for me is 45-50 with a 5 inch right wing helical fletch still delivering a 125 point. I just ordered a dozen tapered arrrows from Elite Arrows (Paul ?) and I am very much looking forward to them. When I spoke with Paul on the phone and gave him my draw length and such he asked if I minded if he took some liberties with my order, as based on my draw length and bow poundage. So, I said “no problem, go ahead”.
