    Second opinion.......

    Evening Folks,
    Ok, I am upgrading from a 125gr to 200gr broadhead for both my compound and recurve.
    I currently draw 28.5 and use axis n- fused shafts. 340 for the compound and 400 for the recurve.
    I personally feel that I should probably step up to 300 for the wheelie and 340 for the 'curve.
    Any advice or opinions are, as always, well received.
    Have a great evening, Doc.

    Best thing to do is get some 200gr field points and bare shaft for a correct tune.

    Broadside usually has 200s in stock

    Need to know your draw length and poundage. But better to be stiff for the compound, 300 spine or stiffer.

    The degree of satisfaction gained from the accomplishment of a goal is directly proportional to the hardships and challenges overcome in order to achieve it.

    my compound set up, 28.5 draw 70 pound. I'm running 29 inch 250 spine+235 grain broad head. I found the 300 spine was not reactive enough, had a poor paper tear and not consistent enough on the walk back tune. I always run a bit stiffer shaft seems to tune better for me.

    I run 300's through my 56# recurve. As long as point weights above 150gn they fly great. That's full length, uncut.

    Here's my opinion. Compound: definitely need 300 or 250 spine. If you cut your arrows a bit shorter, say 27.5 inches you may be ok at 300.
    Recurve: a bit trickier. As others have said 400 spine should work but your shaft length is more important. That is where bare shaft tuning will help and you can start full length and cut 1/4 inch at a time. Hope that helps.

    No need for 250s unless you're using 50grn+ inserts
