Ok guys, I need some help.

I am very confused on which arrows to choose. I have tried my hardest reading up on arrows but all the talk of grains, shaft size, and stiffness is blowing my mind!:eek:

My main goals now in archery is target shooting and small game hunting. I have a 66" 47# Bear Kodiak Recurve. I found these arrows and screw in tips online.

I guess my questions are would these be a good setup for me to try?
What size arrow should I get?
What weight tip should I get?
And lastly, since the arrow comes with an insert, does that mean it can take a screw in tip?


Thanks for the help. I hope I don't seem lazy, liek I can't find this informatin for myself. I have tried but it all just doesn't make sense to me.

Hi the bow is 47# at 28" but what we really need to know is how long is your draw length )add and inch or 2 t that to get your arrow length), and what weight head you want to shoot? The lightest spine shaft on your link was a .500 (2016) I guess you may draw around 26-28" so assume you use a 28-29" arrow and go with 125 gr. head. I would not use any of those shafts, try 1916's. If you go shorter on your shaft try 145-160 gr. heads if you go longer drop down to 100 gr. heads. If you end up shooting a 26-27" arrow you may want to try 1816 shafts. if your draw is very long you may want the 2016 or even a 2018 shaft.

Once ya figure it out..try here:

I haven't found fletched legacy arrows any cheaper per dozen. In fact when I got mine, I paid $50 for a half a dozen shipped..
Also, notice that on your link you must pay them to cut your arrows down to the length you want.

I'd recommend cutting your first arrows two inches longer than what you draw...as your draw may change as you settle in. My draw did get an inch longer over my first season and im sure glad I listened to the advice of getting em 2 inches longer.

If you need to weaken the shaft a lil or you just want a heavy point try:
