When I shoot my arrow out of my recurve 55# @28 inches with a 2117 arrow with a 100 grain point the arrow is kicking left. Do I need a stiffer spine or weaker spine?

For a right-handed archer, nock left indicates weak spine when everything else in the set-up is right. But a 2117 should actually be too stiff from your set-up, esp w/a 100 gr pt. Now there are other things that can cause a nock left condition. Have you tried moving your nocking point?

Are you talking paper tune, or are you "bareshaft" tuning?

We're assuming you're talking about the arows in the target, right? If so, don't rule out feather interference, or some thing else giving you a bad read.

Agree with smitty, unless you have a 31" draw a 2117 is a tab stiff for a #55.

Viper1 out.
