  1. Samick Archery Discussion
    I recently started shooting a PSE mustang that was given to me along with six brand new Easton Legacy arrows. The arrows are 30 inches long, 10.1 GPI, with a .340 spine. I discovered a large crack in the riser of the PSE Mustang to a large enough degree that the bow is dangerous to shoot. I have...

    Hey guys. Really cant figure out what my issue is here. My Hoyt I shoot now was already "tuned" from my pro shop when I bought it. I was curious about nock tuning my arrows so I decided to rip my fletchings off and give it a try. Shooting bareshafts through paper I was really nock left. No...

    Hello, I'm new to archery and picking new quality arrows. I've been able to consistently shoot at distance 10 meters with no-brand arrows, but at 18m/20yard my arrows are all over the target. So I'm looking for quality arrows, which are Easton X10 or Victory VAP at my local store, so I pick VAP...

Looking at having 250 grains up front (125 grain exodus and 125 grain ethics inserts). I have a dozen black eagle spartans 300 spine laying around and...

    I have about a 72# prime logic and I made a few arrows with 100gr inserts. If I shoot through with regular inserts they group pretty close to center. When I shoot the three arrows with the 100gr inserts (the only difference) they group nicely but to the right. Any idea why?
  8. Bow Tuning
    I shoot a Mathew’s V3 60lb dw 27.5 inch dl. The guy in my local archery shop recommended 400 spine Easton FMJ arrows cut to 27.5 inches. I also use 125 grain broadheads. My question is if I want to adjust my draw weight to 65 lbs can I continue using my 400 spine Easton FMJ arrows with the 125...

    To find the correct arrow length and spine combination I went off of eastons spine chart to get the correct spine. Starting with arrows a little long to trim down. I fletched one shaft and and kept another bareshaft. Bow is tuned and shooting bullet holes through paper. I sighted in fletched...

    I currently have Gold Tip Hunter Pro shafts with a 300 spine. I am planning on adding 100 grain brass inserts and shooting a 150 grain broadhead for total point weight of 250 grains. I am shooting an RX-7 Ultra at 68 pounds with a 29 inch draw length. Will I be underspined with this much upfront...
  11. Traditional Archery
    Hey guys, I’ve been shooting compounds for years but I’m new to the trad game (and loving it btw). I’m trying to find the correct spine for my 40# Samick Sage, at my 28.5ish draw length my bow scale says about 43#.

    Looking to buy some aluminium arrows for my Southwest archery Spyder XL. Bow is 55lb and my draw length is 30” resulting in a 31” shaft. Going by Eastons chart for aluminium arrows I need a 2219 shaft which is considerably heavier (13.4gpi) than my 400 spine carbons (8.1gpi) … I shoot with...

    Just bought some CE Maxima Red 350s. My question is, if I cut them to 28.5” will the spine be compromised if I have 125 g broadhead and a 50 g insert? Thanks for the help guys. 60lb DW 30” DL

    Hey guys, I am looking into some new gold tip arrows. My current setup is 60# draw, 27.5 draw length, shooting around 265-270 with 100gr broadheads on a 400 spine arrow. I am wanting to increase my foc by adding some 50gr inserts which would bump me from 375 to 425 arrow weight. Gold tips spine...

    I’m wondering if I’m shooting a too stiff of an arrow if it could cause me problems? My DL is 25.5 and my bow is set at 45#. My friend will occasionally share and cut down some of his arrows with me. The arrows I’m shooting right now have a 250 spine. Every chart I’ve read says I should be using...

Shooting Maxima Red 350's @ 28" with 100gr tips. I was out last year due to shoulder surgery, but am playing catch up now and while...

    I've been shooting barebow recurve for about a year now, but prior to that have built/maintained/tuned my kids bows for a number of years. That is to say, I'm reasonably confident with most aspects of recurve build, setup and tune ... except that using arrow charts remains a frustrating mystery...
