Thanks for reading. Could anyone suggest an affordable set for building a target high FOC arrow. I am shooting recurve 32# so the lighter arrow the better ( I know lighter often means money ). I would like an arrow for everything with a 15-20% FOC.
Which brand offer heavy point (or insert) matching shafts at an affordable price?
I would appreciate your set up for high foc.
Thanks in advance.

If you’re shooting a recurve, you need to contact big jim’s archery in S Ga. He has a wide selection of shafts and components and also sells gold tip blemished shafts at a very affordable price. The only blemish on them is the dip/coloring.

Thanks Glorious.
I have been checking the Hexx... it may be a way to go but I have my doubts because the 400 spine seems to stiff for my 32# (even after weaken the arrow with brass insert in the front). Appreciated.

A light arrow with high FOC is tough. You have to find the lowest GPI arrow and then add a brass insert to the front. When you say "light" that is very subjective........how about a target weight?

If you want to be able to change everything on the arrow to your liking, South Shore Archery is pretty great. Full customization, insert weight, vanes, offset, etc. That is where I got my arrows.

Im looking for new arrows for my compound. Do you know if the South Shore guy builds arrows around the stiff side of the arrow?

Thanks - Jack

What about Black Eagle Vintage? Standard diameter, made up to 600 spine, 34" uncut, and depending on how heavy you want to go up front. They also make 100gr brass inserts for them. You could always run them long and I bet you could get a 600 to tune at 32# with enough weight up front.

Thanks deadquiet. Please bare with me, what do you mean with “target weight”?
Light is a relative term. To some folks light is 450 grains to others light is 350 grains. To some 500 might even be light. What finished arrow weight are you looking for when you say light?

Thanks for your answer Deadquiet. You are dead right: “light” is a relative term. When I said light I was talking about my starting point: a builded arrow except for the point. I need a light base to add grains. Let me explain it. I am not looking for an specific arrow’s weight, but I would like an arrow as light as my budget would afford, cause I am shooting just 32#. The arrow’s weight without the point or insert is what it is, but the lighter the better, because first, less weight to move and second I have to add less weight to the front to achive my goal: 15-20% FOC so I guess my best should be around 420 gn total for a 29” shaft.

Easton aluminum arrows-cheap but not supper high foc

Easton carbon one shafts -a little more money but decent shaft.

29” arrow 32# off the fingers. 800 spine with a 100 or 125 tip would be where I would start.

For target high FOC does very little in my opinion. And I’m some cases can actually hurt more than it helps
Learn good solid form.
learn to bare shaft tune. Fender Archery has a great bare shaft tuning guide.
Are you shooting off the shelf or rest or rest and plunger set up.
