Let's say you have some Easton 2213's and then you have some Easton 2413's that are slightly "girthier". All arrows are the same length and will be shooting the same weight tips....how will this effect accuracy when shot out of the same bow?

Opinions?

catchy title on this one... I would think that the fatter arrow would probably be a little slower w/ more surface area but might have less drop for the same reason, assuming the arrows weigh the same.

Can not compare, I do not believe both of these arrows will be both spined correctly for the same setup.

But to try to anylize your question, the bigger girth arrows, as you put them, will allow you to shoot lighter arrows with the same spine strength. This is the advantage.

For example:

If you are shooting a hard cam, at 70 lbs with 100 grain heads, and 28" arrows, this is the arrows you can shoot which will be spined correctly.

2412---- Arrow weight is 270
2314---- Arrow weight is 299
2215---- Arrow weight is 299
2117---- Arrow weight is 336
2216---- Arrow weight is 336

Less arrow weight, more speed, flatter trajectory. Make sense?

You need to look at easton's arrow chart and that will help you pick the correctly spined arrow.

2413's will be stiffer than the 2213's because they have more supporting surface area with the larger 24/64 diameter shaft . Kinda like a stick compared to a noodle . I shot 2413's for years before making the switch to carbons and never looking back .
Here is a shaft selector .

BUT......you can go with a heavier head on the 2413's and make the shaft be suitable for your set up. That is the catch. See it is a catch 22 situation. It is never a win win type deal. You will always sacrifice something to gain something. You will always have to compromise. That is why it is more advantagous to experiment with different equipment till you find the happy medium. It would probably be more beneficial to go with a 2312. I actually have used 2413 and 2312 arrows to hunt with. Both arrowes done a very good job in harvesting game. Surprising the 2312 performed a little better that the 2413. On every deer taken with a 2413, the arrow broke. I had many pass throughts with a 2312. Shot placement was the key.
