I shoot 29 in. draw my arrows are 28.5 the longer arrow will shoot better because it is more forgiving and easier to tune . shootem longer you will likem better


Good luck

Mine are a tad under 27". Why/how does the length affect forgiveness? I thought proper spine and indexing the knocks according to spine deflection were 2 most important factors? Just curious.

That's what I thought too. Mine are 27.5" from the end of the shaft to the nock groove.

Mine are 27.75 to the ends of the nock fingers. At full draw they"re about 1/4"" in front of the Bisquit.
Check your draw length...you are drawing closer to 30" if your statement is correct.

All my arrows are different length. My X-Jammer indoor arrows are 28" and sit 1/2" in front of my Pro-Tuner blade. My outdoor arrows are 28 1/4" because that's the length they group the best. My hunting arrows are 29 1/4" because I have a phobia about drawing a broadhead across my fingers and I want them out front of the riser.

Because most draw their arrow past the front of the riser.

Arrow length only effect forgiveness through changing the arrows spine measurement, point weight being the same - longer arrow have greater deflection. length being the same - heavier points have greater deflection.

long story short - arrow length doesnt matter - arrow spine matters!
