Althought heavy front to center is good in more ways than one carbon arrows are stiff, if cut off to short they will be very unforgiving and fly badly you will have no choice but to add all that weight tip the tip to get it to shoot.With all that being said.
I shoot standard inserts and leave my arrows full length.

Yeah, I made that mistake recently by trying to get my 45 and 55 pro hunters shooting the same shaft where I look just by adjusting the side pad. Cut arrows to 29.5 inch (I have 28 inch draw length). Shooting the gold tip hunter (black shaft) and the traditional shaft (wood grain) fine with the 55 lb bow, with 125 grain point, and 75 or 100 grain steel adapter with standard insert. In fact, needed the hard pad and a twig under the pad to move the shafts left enough.

Either shaft with the 45 lb bow is shooting stiff (left) with the soft or no pad and I really don't want to increase point weight more as I will sacrifice flat trajectory with the 45 lb bow. Went to a lighter TS-1 string and that helped some to move the arrow to the right, but still not enough.

Probably should have left all the shafts alone and that would give me maximum ability to adjust with side plate options.
