You’d need an arrow that’s roughly 27 inches in length if you have a 28-inch draw length and want an arrow that terminates at the front of the riser on your bow. However, if you need to weaken the spine of your arrow, you may make your arrow length a little longer.
How long should my arrows be based on draw length?
A decent rule of thumb is to not trim it any shorter than the center of the riser, unless absolutely necessary. At full draw, the end of your arrow would be exactly in the center of the shelf. A full-length, uncut arrow nocked and drawn back will give you the most accurate measurement of how long your arrows need to be.
Should arrows be same length as draw length?
Draw length – To put it simply, your draw length is the distance between your anchor point and the end of the bow string. Your arrow length should be somewhat longer than your draw length in order to allow the arrow to clear the bow or arrow rest and, more crucially, to prevent the arrow from coming off your rest if you overdraw slightly, which might be disastrous if done incorrectly.
How long should my arrows be for a 27 inch draw?
The arrow must be 29″ in length and be supported by two points that are 28″ apart on either side of the center point.
How long should arrows be for 28 inch draw?
You’d need an arrow that’s roughly 27 inches in length if you have a 28-inch draw length and want an arrow that terminates at the front of the riser on your bow. However, if you need to weaken the spine of your arrow, you may make your arrow length a little longer. Your arrows should not be too short for the sake of your own safety.
How long should my arrows be for a 27.5 draw?
You may want them flush with the front of the riser, while some prefer them just past the rest and as short as possible; the choice is entirely up to you. With a draw length ranging from 27.5 to 28 inches, my arrows are normally 27.75 inches in length. Personally, I wouldn’t want an arrow with that much length. Choosing a heavier tip will need the purchase of an arrow with more stiffness.
How long should my arrows be for a 29 inch draw?
Whatever arrows you pick, at the very least 1/4″ of arrow overhang is required on the rest of your bow. As a result, you should be able to shoot an arrow that is approximately 28 1/4 inches long with rests that are set up regularly. For indoor use, you may go all the way up to full length 36″ arrows. Your rest should have a one-inch overhang, in my opinion.
What happens if arrows are too long?
Nothing bad happens just because you’ve been waiting too long. While being excessively long does not necessarily make an arrow’s dynamic spine less effective, it does make them less accurate since they tend to “fishtail” while in flight, which is undesirable. They will also have a proclivity to fly to the right (for a right handed archer).
How long should arrows be for a recurve bow?
What is the best arrow length to get? Once you’ve estimated your draw length, simply add 1 to 2 inches to that figure, and you’ll have your optimum arrow length, as shown below. Consequently, if your draw length is 28 inches, you should be employing arrows that are between 29 and 30 inches in length, and vice versa.
What size arrows do I need?
To establish the necessary arrow length, you just take your draw length and multiply it by 0.5′′ up to a maximum of 1′′. As a result, if your draw length is 28 inches, you should be able to obtain arrows with a maximum length of 29 inches. What this will do is to provide you with an arrow that is just long enough to clear the front-most portion of the arrow shelving.
Does arrow length matter?
To establish the ideal arrow length, just take your draw length and multiply it by 0.5′′ up to a maximum of 1′′. In other words, if your draw length is 28 inches, you should be able to get arrows that are no more than 29 inches in length. What this will do is to provide you with an arrow that is just long enough to clear the front-most portion of the arrow shelving unit.
How do I know my draw length?
Place your back against a wall and stretch both of your arms out against the wall to determine the length of your draw length. Simply measure the distance between the ends of your middle fingers on both arms, hands, and chest. This is the length of both arms, hands, and chest. Your draw length is calculated by subtracting 15 from this measurement and dividing the result by two.
How is arrow length measured?
The correct arrow length is measured from the bottom of the shaft, inside of the nock groove (deepest place where the string enters the nock), to the cut end of the shaft, excluding the point or point insert, but including the tip or point insert.
What spine arrows should I shoot?
As the draw weight of the arrow rises, so should the stiffness of the arrow (spine). In addition, we highly advise you to use an arrow with at least 5 grains of weight per pound of draw weight while shooting (if you are shooting a 60 lb. bow, you should use and arrow of not less than 300 grains).
