Instinctive or not and whether it's your conscious or subconscious doing the aiming?...a longer pointer is always more accurate...just like the longer sight radius of long barreled rifles and pistols over short barrel rifles and pistols.I've been able to tune off the shelf with full length arrows and point weight, is there any reason to cut my arrows down? My DL is 28 1/2" and I shoot instinctive.
You are missing something there : correct answer FOR MEYes, if you want to shoot a heavier arrow. I wouldn't, but the question was 'any reason' so the correct answer is yes.
I thought of that but even though I don't aim with the point if I did the arrows all being full length would be the same.It becomes a matter of personal choice. When I get a new set of arrows cutting them to length is the first thing I do with them. I don't tune with length. By doing it this way my sight "picture" remains consistent regardless of arrows.
There is no one and only way to do archery. The one rule that is imperative is that you be consistent.
