What arrow length do I need for a 28 draw?

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. However, your arrow length can be longer if you need to weaken the spine of your arrow. For safety reasons, your arrows shouldn’t be cut too short.

How do I know if my bow draw length is too long?

If the bow arm drops or swings to the side, the draw length is probably too long. When this happens, the scapula has already pushed the bow arm out as far as it can extend before the arrow is released. No room is left for the bow arm to go forward, so it drops or swings to the side.

How long should my arrows be for a 29 inch draw?

If you’re using a compound bow with 29draw, then the arrow length for 29draw should be 29” – 1.5” = 27.5”. For most modern bows and risers, that measurement is still acceptable. The arrow will likely to stay on the arrow rest which is vital.

What does 400 mean on an arrow?

The numbers refer to the spine of the arrow. The different spines refer to the stiffness, a 400 spine arrow is generally for bows 40-60 lbs. 350 spine is for bows roughly 55 – 75 lbs, and a 500 spine arrow is for bows roughly 30 – 50 lbs.

How tall should my bow be?

The overall height of the recurve bow (in inches) should be roughly your draw length plus 40in. Standard setups usually range from 66in-72in, although there is more variety for youth archers.

How tall is a short bow?

The short bow is technically any bow shorter than 5 feet 5 inches, but it is typically about 3 feet long. The differences in length change many aspects of when and how the bow is used.

What draw weight do Olympic archers use?

In that sense, compound is a little bit more user friendly and the recurve, though, is a little bit more traditional.” At the Olympic level, the men are usually pulling back 40 to 50 pounds of bow weight with each shot, and women are averaging 38 pounds and above.

What should my draw length be?

First, find a measuring tape and someone to help you. Next, stand up straight and spread your arms out wide. Hold that position while your helper takes a measurement of your wingspan between the fingertips of your middle fingers. Finally, take that measurement and divide by 2.5 to determine your proper draw length.

How do I know if my draw length is too short?

The ideal draw length for you is the one that allows you to anchor in a comfortable position, with your bow arm elbow unlocked (slightly bent) and your release arm elbow and forearm pointing straight away from the target. If the release arm elbow points left or right, your draw length is too long or too short.

How do I know my draw weight?

The standard for determining their draw weight is taken at 28 inches of draw length. The draw weight is marked on the bow’s lower limb with the pound sign (#),such as 35# @ 28”. That translates to 35 pounds of draw weight at a 28-inch draw length.

What is the standard arrow diameter?

S “standardDiameter is 6.5MM, H “Reduced Diameter” is 6MM, X “Micro Diameter” is 5MM, and our “Ultra-Micro” G Diameter is 4MM (utilizing Deep Six components.)

Can an arrow be too long?

No, you can‘t have an arrow too longit can be 6′ if you like. All you need to do is have the proper spine, tip weight to get the proper FOC (forward of center–AKA balance) and proper fletching. longer arrow taking time to recover? not really, the arrow will flex all the way to the target.

What happens if your arrows are too heavy?

Spine or stiffness of the arrow, depends on many factors. Yes the longer the arrow generally the lighter the spine. If the arrow spine is to stiff at the draw length of the bow leaving it longer can help match the spine to the draw weight of the bow. Adding a bigger heavier point to the arrow can do the same thing.

Is it better to have longer or shorter arrows?

The shorter arrow will be lighter and therefore faster off the bow. The longer heavier arrow will retain its velocity better than the lighter arrow. The shorter, faster arrow will have more drag therefore reducing penetration. The longer arrow will flex more upon impact, therefore reducing penetration.

Do longer arrows fly 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.
