As I eluded to in another post, I'm getting back into archery after about a 25 year hiatus. I've never had much of any coaching, and my memory for what we talked about in archery merit badge is pretty bad, so here goes.
Should an arrow that is correctly matched to the bow (spine, length, etc) travel straight to the target, regardless of the cant of the bow?
Does the above apply to all bows, or just those with a shelf that allows the arrow to be close to or on the mid-line of the bow (i.e. are things different for a traditional long bow that has no shelf)?
Are there other factors that would affect the spine of a wood arrow other than the diameter and material?
If it helps, I'm specifically thinking about this regarding a 40-45# longbow that I want to get in the near future.
