Measuring arrow length

6021 14
What is the correct way to measure the arrow length for your bow?
If I am shooting a 29dl bow- what size shaft should I be shooting?

When ordering do I count the length of the nock?

From throat of nock to end of carbon is the correct way to measure..now the length you want is up to you...target shafts are fine just a tad longer than rest,but huntn shafts you generally want atleast 1"-1 1/2 past the rest so your broads stay infront of your hand..

You're right, there are no guarantees against equipment failures...so we guard against then as best we can. I keep my fingers/hand below the rise cutout, that way, the broadhead cannot hit me. I do not believe I'm doing anything risky at all.
So what happens if your one of those guys that shoots a mechanical head and it prematurely opens before shot?? Happens quite often regardless of whether its happened to you or not..
