    Elite Archery Discussion
    Getting a new to me bow. Need long DL, not a lot of choices, so went with Elite Tempo. I shoot for fun, just kind of getting back into it with my son. What length arrows should I be shooting for. 60lb draw, any more suggestions on spine and weight? Thanks in advance. Probably will be...
  2. Beginner recurve advice - arrow spine/length choice

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi all, I'm relatively new to archery and I'm looking to buy my first bow and set of arrows. My draw length is around 27". I'm most likely going to get a Samick Sage (good price for a beginner bow) in about 30 or 35 lbs draw weight (seems to be a good weight for a beginner male), hopefully...
  3. Quick Question - spine + arrow length

    Traditional Archery
    Hi All, Quick question (or two) about spine. 1: Is the stated spine of an arrow based on the uncut length (which would be tricky as so many different lengths) or standardised at 28"? 2: If the latter, is there a rough guide/formula to how much spine increases (arrow weakens) for draw...

  5. Easton Axis spine and insert

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi, I'm shooting a Hoyt Defiant 30, 66–68 pound draw weight (depending on the scale), 27 1/2" draw length, and I'm wondering what spine and length Easton Axis shafts and inserts the people here would recommend.

  9. Arrow length question...

    General Archery Discussion
    New bow is on the way, I'm looking for new arrows in the meantime and had a question about how long my arrow should be. I'm at a 28.5" draw 67# pull. My archery shop suggested I have my arrows cut to 30.25" however, this seems a little longer than I remember for my older bow. Opinions/thoughts?

  11. Optimum Arrow Length?

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    How do I determine the optimum arrow length for my setup? I have a 26" draw and can pull up to 63lbs comfortably. I want a high FOC and KE so do I go with a longer heavier arrow to achieve this? Since I have a shorter draw, thus shorter arrows, do I need to stick with stiffer spines to...

    General Archery Discussion
    So I've been a bowhunter for a longtime. All my life I've had this idea that if you sight your bow in for an arrow. That is the arrow you will shoot and if you change model or brand you will have to resight in your bow. But today I was experimenting with arrows and such when I cut my brothers...

  16. Arrow length question

  20. Rule of thumb for arrow length...

    General Archery Discussion
    Is it not "usually" 1" past your arrow rest? The longer the arrow the heavier obviuosly but if the arrows won't paper tune and tear good then it would be a right thing to do to cut them shorter and try different weight tips until it tunes, right? Current set-up: 28" draw, #68, 29" arrow and...
