So I'm new into archery after about a 20 year break, so basically new all together. When I bought my bow from a guy here he sold me a few arrows, they are roughly 27.5" we'll call it. Fast forward to me trying to support the local bow shop, I go there to pickup some new arrows and decided not to take any of my others with me, I wanted their advice on spine/length/etc. They tell me that since my draw length is 28" then they like to add 1" to the arrows and cut them at 29". Quite the difference.
Well I find out that they screwed up the installation of my QAD HDX rest, so I'm losing faith in their knowledge, and looking around I see that not many people are shooting arrows that are an inch over their draw length.
So what do you all shoot? Here's a picture of my current 29" arrow and another with a draw length indicator arrow. The picture of the 29" arrow is at a slight angle, so it's even farther past the riser then in looks. Bow is an Elite Answer, 28" draw, 60#, QAD-HDX rest if it matters. In the picture with the length indicator arrow, for reference, my rest is right about 24.5" on the arrow. Thank's for any advice.
