Would Beman carbon racing 800-13 shafts cut to 25" be suitable for a young shooter, pulling 27lbs. out of an Alpine micro? Can't seem to find info on this shaft anywhere. Must be discontinued??? Thanks for any info
AA lists your Beman Racing 800-13s as too stiff. 6.6 grains per inch. The 1000-13s are listed as optimal using a 75 grain point. I think you could get the 800-13s to work. I'd buy them if the price was right. Beman makes a good arrow shaft.
Most of the "youth" arrows are just mislabeled. They should be labeled "junk". I spend more on my kids arrows than I do on mine. I don't know anything about the arrows you are asking about, but my son shoots 900 spine arrows cut to 23" with a glue in 50 grain point. They are the Beman ICS energy shafts, and run a little over $80/doz. These things are very light, and at 32# he gets over 190 fps and outstanding flight with them.
Kids arrows are often marketed in a cheap price range - this is because they are assumed to be basically disposable. They are disposable because they are so crappy the kid can't hit anything with them.
