    Hi, I'm new to archery, and after watching plenty of reviews I decided that Black Hunter is the one I like most (another most-recommended bow is Samick Sage, but it looks bigger). So I'm looking for arrows that is suitable for bows like this (30# power, 60-62" length). The goal is for indoor 20...

    How’s it going TTNation. New member here looking for some input/confirmation. I have been tuning my bow and arrows and have everything pretty well dialed. I ended up on 5/8 nock high on my nocking point and getting AWESOME flight with no up and down movement in my arrows. But… upon settling at...

    I have 11 of these. Used. Five are fletched 3 @ 4". The rest are bare shaft. They are 28 3/4" long from nock groove to end of carbon. I was fine shooting them at my draw length until I decided to hunt, and then the BH's were way too close to my fingers! Nocks and inserts included. To your...

    Bowmania, his arrows keep landing too far to the right. Spine too weak, or other problems? :jk:

    Is there any benefit to tuning your arrow by thickening or thinning the strike plate vs cutting and point weight? I read about Rick Welsch talking about making your bow shoot where you point but says he doesn't bare shaft tune?

    I "stole" this off another thread, where Glynn posted it. I think it's a valid question deserving not to get buried & lost. I'm also curious to read answers on it. MY nut says trajectory, even speeds all same, heavier drops sooner. What say you all? I watched a video of Aron Snyder talking...

    Been awhile since I’ve posted... I’ve been shooting a Black Widow PSA 43# at 28”... I’ve been shooting legacy 2117 with 125gr magnus broadheads... I want to go to the Simmons shark broadheads and I’m wondering what would be the heaviest head I can shoot with these arrows... if I decide to go to...

    It's bow and arrow again I started now hunting with a recurve. I'm pretty sure they was all we had back then. That because compound bows, that became expensive. Up until last year I had not now hunted in a few years but decided to finish a bow I started building about 40 years ago. The bow...

    Looking at both GT and Three Rivers charts the recommended spine is much much stiffer than I use for full length arrows. Am I not seeing something?

    Hi all, could someone please advise me on wooden arrows for my 1972 Damon Howatt Hunter 35#/28”. I cannot find manufacturers recommendations/limit, I don’t want to go too low, I draw 26” shooting to 55 yards max, field 3D only and like to be point on at 25-30 yards.

    A while back somebody posted a tool for calculating arrow spine in relation to arrow length, draw weight, etc,etc You punch in the numbers and it gave you your arrow spine estimate. If anybody has that link, if you could post it Id appreciate it. Im trying to figure how much spine Im losing by...

    So, I've been shooting barebow for a little over a year now. My rig is a Samick Avante with an 18oz weight in the lowest stab bushin, and Axiom 26lb limbs. Arrows are full length Predator2 800's with 44 grain half outs. I recently upgraded my rest from a cheap $10 bolt on flipper with a lot...

    In considering arrows, how much difference in performance will there be between an arrow listed as .005 straightness and one that lists .003 straightness? Specifically comparing Easton Legacy Trad shafts to Easton Axis 5mm Trad.

    Can anyone share good arrow setups for 3D? Currently shooting DAS with [email protected] limbs, DL 29.75”, 30.25” Easton trad 500, 50 grain insert, and 150 grain tip. Would maybe like to go lighter or with a bit longer arrow.

    I use Easton's method of calculating FOC, where their arrow length is from bottom of nock groove to BOP (back-of-point). Given my aluminium arrow adapters are about 1-1/2" long, where would you place the BOP?

    I just purchased a second hand Hoyt Dorado recurve with 50# limbs for my first recurve and need to setup some arrows for it that I would want to use for hunting in the future. Honestly I’m not sure where to start when it comes to arrow spine, point weight, and arrow length and am looking for...
