Ok I’m a newb to crossbow so please excuse the silly question. I’m looking at the Gold Tip 500 Nitro. Does that mean it’s around 500 grains before or after you put a tip on?
Thanks,

No, it's in reference to the spine of the arrow, which BTW seem pretty weak for a crossbow. What does the Mfr recommend?

Good luck.

nitro pro 500 is spined for bows requiring at least 500 grains of arrow weight.
that's what the 500 stands for.
this arrow can be finished to or above 500 with standard market weight heads.
I use them. Fine arrow.

Wrong!

Thanks Lever Action for the info. Sounds like the arrow is fairly stiff instead of weak. Probably handle everything up to a 150gr head.
