Aluminum shaft size questionContributors to this thread:

Shooting 29 in draw 60 lb compound would 2213 xx75 be ok. They are 9 plus gr. Per inch.These size charts get more confusing every year.
I'm having to many choices issue. I use to shoot 2213 xx75 no problems. I either need to stick with 2213 or go to carbons but to many choices and prices so high.I would like to go carbon but don't want to pay $125dz. Any good shaft reccomrndations at decent price. Mainly indoor 300 round. Thanks
Back when I shot aluminum with a similar draw length and even a little higher poundage than 60, I shot 2213 without a problem. You'd be fine with that.
If you're shooting fingers, bare bow, I think you'll be happier with the aluminums. I never could "tame" the carbons, aluminums seem to be a lot more "forgiving", in regard to my shooting style.
And, they're a helluva lot cheaper ;^)
If you are going to shoot indoor 300 rounds only and want aluminum I would (and I do) shoot a 2712.
2712, 2613, 2512, 2413, 2315, 2314, 2213 ..... In that order. And turn your poundage down as far as you can for indoor 300 shooting. Save your shoulder. Most of the guys in our club shoot less than 55#. I shoot 45# with my 2712's.
Im going to have to turn a bow down and try it sometime. I've never tried shooting a bow at 45 lbs but I figure one could literally shoot 12 rings every shot.
