How long should traditional arrows be?
The standard way to measure arrow length is from the back of the point to the throat of the nock.
Your draw length and arrow spine will influence your arrow length.
If you’re a 28-inch draw length and want an arrow that ends at the front of the riser, your arrow length would be around 27 inches..
Should arrows be level at full draw?
No. Checking the arrow level at full draw on the draw board.
Should Arrows level on rest?
With rest arm in activated position, level arrow from nock end and mark serving on each side of nock. This is your nocking point. (Note: Level to 1/6-inch high is perfect for release shooting; 1/8- to 3/8-inch high for fingers is generally best). 3.
What happens if my arrows are too stiff?
Too stiff an arrow usually just slows the bow down with a heavier arrow. Too weak a spine arrow usually yeilds a faster lighter arrow. But the light spine cause the arrow to shoot way off the mark as the range increases.
How does arrow length affect accuracy?
If an arrow is too long and heavy, it will drop sooner and fly slow, so the archer needs to aim higher. That makes it harder to hit the target. Longer arrows flex more. This means it is harder to get an accurate shot with too long of an arrow.
What happens if your arrows are too lightly or heavily spined for your bow?
Every arrow shaft has a degree of stiffness called spine, which is its resistance to bending. … If your arrows are too lightly or heavily spined for your bow, the “archer’s paradox” movements will be extreme, resulting in poor arrow flight and loss of accuracy.
What spine should my arrows be?
Use the Spine Selector to find your perfect fit. Arrow length is measured from the throat of the nock to the end of the insert. If you are shooting a longer broadhead than field point, you may want to choose a slightly stiffer shaft.
Are 340 or 400 arrows heavier?
340 arrows are stronger/stiffer/harder in “spine” than 400 arrows because they bend less. 400 arrows are stronger than 500 arrows. … A weaker arrows is “softer”. Generally 600 arrows are for bows from 15–35 pounds in draw weight, 500 for 35–55 pounds, 400 for 55–75 pounds, and 340 for 75–95 pounds.
Can arrows be too long?
It can’t hurt if it’s too long if it’s shoots well for you. Too long and you have to have more spine which adds arrow weight, more fletching, and heavier tips for proper FOC (arrow balance).
How long should my arrows be for a 29 inch draw?
Static spine To calculate this, arrows must be 29” long and supported at two points 28” apart. The number of inches the arrow bends multiplied by 1,000 is the arrow’s spine. So, an arrow numbered 350, bends . 350” when the weight is applied.
Where should arrows be at full draw?
Arrows should be at least 1.5″ – 2″ beyond the back of the riser at full draw. Arrows should be at least 1.5″ – 2″ beyond the back of the riser at full draw.
Are longer or shorter arrows better?
Longer arrows are generally more stable and slower, but don’t worry about that. You are better off shooting the correct arrow for your draw length. The spine also has to be correct for the arrow length and power rating of the bow.
How heavy should my arrow be?
Overall Arrow Weights I think a good average hunting arrow should fall in the 6 to 8 grains per pound of bow weight, with lighter bows maybe even closer to 9 to 10 grains per pound. A typical 60-lb. bow should be in the 360- to 480-grain range, a 70-lb. bow in the 420- to 560-grain range.
Do heavier arrows fly better?
Arrows come in three weight categories: light, midweight and heavy. Lighter arrows fly faster and can group more tightly, but they’re often harder to tune. Heavier arrows fly slower but resist wind better and penetrate deeper. Shooting the wrong arrow weight for a bow can damage equipment and harm the archer.
