They are 70 grains. They are making a a bit of noise on release and I thought I remembered hearing that stiff arrows do that. So this morning I upped one to 110 gr but that lowered the spine too much and the arrow flew wonky. Maybe too much of a jump in weight but that's what I had in front of me. It seemed to help the noise but not every shot. I might try something like 90gr.

What is draw weight of the bow?

Nice arrows DC, I like those points to. I suspected you may have already tried it but shooting one bareshaft really takes the guesswork out of if spine is to heavy or light. Usually I just make fletching my last step and shoot them bareshaft before I fletch.
PS I like the bleach on the cock feathers, I may copy that idea

Regular chlorine bleach won't work. I had to use hair dressers stuff. Do a couple of test pieces first. If you leave it on to long it can ruin the feather. These were done for about 5 min.
