Does carbon arrow spine deteariate over time?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Recently my buddy had some trouble getting good arrow flight with his broad heads. Our local dealer recommended trying the broad head on a new arrow shaft. Same brand, same size and length, same everything but one arrow had seen many years of target shooting and the other was new. The new arrow corrected the problem but I’m wondering why. Has anyone noticed a problem with carbon arrows after thousands of shots. A loss of spine or consistency?
Thanks for any insight.

Spine ?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

So I shoot a MR7 and had it nearly max out for hunting 68/30 draw.the spine I was using is a 300 which the chart recommends.but with the target season I backed it down 2 turns so I would assume with knowing exactly its around 60 lbs. now the chart recoends a 340 spine arrow.
So my question is I have a dozen 300 spine arrows,so are they going to shoot dramaticly different if I use these for paper and 3d this summer.or would it be best to pick up a dozen 340 spine arrows? Thanks for your input.

Need some numbers run for spine

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I was hoping someone with high speed software would be kind enough to run some numbers for me. I’m shooting 70/29 CHILL R with 29" Victory VAPs (shaft cut to 28", outsert makes it 29"). I was planning on shooting 300 spine arrows, 50 grain P2 outserts, and 100 grain points but the chart has me shooting 340′s.

If I shoot the 300 spine will I be better off with 125 grain points? Maybe even cut the arrows to 29.5?

Components:

Blazer Vanes
Blazer Wraps
50 grain insert
100 or 125 grain points

Thanks for the help!

Need help with spine choice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Thinking about gettin a Bowtech 360 when they come out so I’ve been lookin for a new arrow. I want to shoot around 450gr at 27". My DL is 26.5 or 27 depends on the bow. I am thinking GT because I have some of the weights and spare nocks already. I want to use 450gr for elk and 400 for deer. Not sure if I should go with .340 or .300 due to all the weight up front. Not sure if I’ll by 60# or 70# yet. What are your suggestions for this variance in weight? Should I look at 2 different arrows for these tasks? Thanks.

Help Picking Arrow and Spine

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Ok, I have done a lot of research, but I am still stuck between two different arrows, and most importantly the spine for those arrows. Right now I am torn between the Black Eagle Carnivore and the Deer Crossing Hunter. I have spoken with both manufacturers and they said that ideally a 400 would be best, but I am wanting to add some weight to the front and back of the arrow (lighted nocks on the back and GT Weights on the inserts in the front), to get my FOC up for hunting so a 350 might be better with the added weight. Below is all of my bow specs and my current arrow setup.

I will be shooting primarily for hunting and for fun. Maybe an occasional 3D here or there. Overall, I want an arrow that will be great for Hunting with a good FOC (11 to 14% or so). I will primarily be hunting Whitetail and the occasional hog. My bow information and current arrow information can be found below.

2008 Mathews Drenalin
28" Draw Length
60 lb Limbs that when maxed out get to about 61 to 62 lbs (this is where I shoot it, maxed out)
IBO Rating: 320 fps
BH: 7"
ATA: 33"
Let-off: 80%
LimbDriver Drop Away Rest
Minimum string mounted accessoreis (D-Loop, Tied in Nock Points, and Peep Sight)
I just put new strings on and tuned it, to so everything is in spec.

I currently shoot Carbon Express Maxima with the above information. My arrow information is as follows:
Carbon Express Maxima 250 (7.3 grains per inch)
27.25" from Nock Valley to insert
3 Blazer Vanes (6 grains each)
Arrow Wrap (5 to 6 grains each)
Nockturnal Lighted Nocks (about 23 grains each)
Standard Insert (about 11 grains each)
Gold Tip Insert Weight (qty. 1 at 20 grains) to get my FOC up
Point weight (100 grains. I really dont’ want to go to 125 as I have quite a bit invested in my broadheads)

The above gives me an arrow weight around 380 grains with an FOC just under 11.5%.

I am looking for an arrow that can get me an FOC around 11 to 14%, and a total weight around 360 to 420.

I am not opposed to adding more weight up front (another gold tip 20 grain stacked) to help with FOC and total arrow weight, I just want to make sure to get the correct spine since the additions at the front and back will weaken it some.

Any suggestions and feedback are welcomed. I am far from an expert when it comes to this level of detail, so just want to make sure I make the right choice the first time. Also, I am pretty set between the Black Eagle Carnivore or the Deer Crossing Hunter, but if something else sticks out that would work as good/better and is comparable in price, feel free to post.

Thanks,

Where do orient the “spine” of your arrow when fletching?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Let me start by saying I’m still green at arrow tuning and am probably wrong on lots of this but seems logical to me. I’m getting ready to do my first refletch of some arrows I’ve had around for a while. I made a spine tester to find the "spine" or should I say the stiffest side of the arrow, where the seam is located. I know these are 300 spine arrows and I’m cool if they are in the area of that number. My goal is to orient my nocks to the "spine" of each arrow so I get the same flight out of them.

When I nock tuned these arrows when they were factory fletched the spines and the fletchings had random orientation, so on this batch I’m getting everything aligned.
Amazing how I could see those factory arrows change flight as I spun the nocks till I found the spine. Making the spine tester made this much faster.

I have be putting the spine/seam side towards the shelf (left, away from the riser on right handed bow) and getting straight flight and tight groups. One of my questions is am I doing this right? I was planning on putting my cock vain the same side as the spine, instead of on top. Since I use a drop-away it shouldn’t matter should it?

So am going about this correctly? Does it matter what side the spine is oriented as long as they are the same and my sights are adjusted for said settings?

Thanks,
Hawk

Spine calculator vs. paper

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I have never really gave Stu’s spine calculator a try and thought I would set up an arrow accordingly. 28.5" Gold Tip trad arrow with 50g insert and 100g tip with a 50# Kodiak Mag (’62). Should be the perfect arrow but seemed to wag a lot in flight and did not group well. Paper tune showed consistently stiff with about 1.5" nock right. I had some brass 100g inserts and swapped out and very much improved the tear, went up too 125g tip and was shooting bullet holes. Thought I would see how it shot at 15 and 20yrds, huge improvement! I am in no way knocking the spine calculator but this arrow should be incredibly week, by 20 points on the calculator yet shoots perfect. has anyone else had similar results? This set-up also has an extreme FOC but I am going with it.
