Not me but if they are short enough and/or not front loaded, I bet they'd work fine especially if you factor in the center cut of the bow.

Do you count shooting woodies off of selfbows. I have some 30-35# spine arrows that shot great from a 50# board bow. In fact, they seemed to fly pretty well anywhere from 30-50#. But I may not be converting the numbers right.

I've never tried 600 spine carbons off these bows, though.

I shot them from my 50# Bear Montana LB with 125 grain tips and regular inserts. To “touchy” for my Wes Wallace LB, 55#’s.
I have mine cut at 28.5. Their OK from my 45# ILF setup but get “touchy/tricky” with 50# and above bows.
What I have better luck with 50-55# is Victory Vap shafts. These are rated 40-60#. These are not the skinny ones either.

If short enough, but, weight would be a concern for me. Would there be enough?!

Cut them to 27ins and put a 50gr. insert and 145 head out of my 50 to 55lb. bows. work great.

I guess draw length is an important consideration.

I was worried about weight myself,but found that carbon express were 10.7 gpi. I don't know how they could be that heavy,but they work good out of a 50 pound bow. I shoot them with a 145 tip out of my 50 and use them for my lighter bows with heavier tips.

I would nevereven try with my 55 though.

My bad on the weight of those shafts,they are 9.7. I thought that sounded heavy so I checked again. They are still quite a bit heavier than other .600 spine shafts.

I once accidentally shot a 600 spine 29" arrow with 125gr tip out of my 60# (at my draw) Kwik Styk, and was pleasantly surprised to see how well it shot. In fact, I continued to shoot that combo till I sold the bow. Kinda wish i still had it come to think of it.

As long as you are getting good arrow flight and you are at least 9 grains per pound of bow weight.....you're good to go. Forget what the calculators say. If your bare shafts and fletched shafts are grouping together, you're done experimenting, go shoot and have fun [thumbsup]

Take care,
