High FOC Build for Short Draw, Low Draw Weight, Short Arrow length #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Looking for some advice. This topic has probably been talked about religiously and I don’t want to beat the dead horse, but I’m struggling to find a concrete answer. Here are the specs for my bow and arrows:

Bow Specs:

– Mathews Triax
– Drawlength: 28"
– Draw weight: 61.8 lb (max)

Arrow Specs:

– Length: 26.75′
– Insert Weight: 110 grains
– Outsert Weight: 70 grains
– Broad Head Weight: 100 grains
– 3 Fletch Blazers: 18 grains
– Wrap Weight: 5 grains
– Lighted Nock Weight: 20 grains

Depending on the arrow I choose the shoot, I’ll be right around 550 grains.

My question is, with such a short arrow and low poundage, will I be okay shooting a lower spined arrow? Like a 350 spined arrow. Or should I bump up to a 300 spine or higher?

This is my first time building a high FOC arrow so any advise is welcome.

Thanks in advanced!

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Looking to increase arrow weight with current arrows. Current setup is hoyt alphamax 35 with 27" draw length and pulling 65lbs. Arrows are gold tip hunter pro 340 8.9gpi. Arrows are 27.5" from nock grove to end of shaft. Arrows currently weigh 400. Would it be best just to add the weight to the gold tip insert? Was thinking about adding 50 grains to get too 450ish. Or will I need to get different arrows? Thanks

Bow Weight Performance #archery

Question: Do you feel that a bow performs better at it’s peak weight better than backed off?

If your bow is set at 50# but it peaks cranked down at 60#, with all else being equal (gpp arrows, etc), do you think the bow performs better at peak weight (less vibration, etc, etc)?

Vertix and switch weight #archery

Just a question for you Vertix owners. I’ve owned a couple of Mathews in my day. They all came out a little hot, 2-3 lbs over stated draw weight. With the switch weight are you getting dead nuts draw weight, or are they over or under stated weight?

RIP TKO weight #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Looking at a couple of different arrow setups and the Victory RIP TKO caught my eye. I used the RIP HV before but not the TKO. My question is what are the weights of the 350 spine and the 300 spine. I have seen 2 or 3 different weights posted so curious.

Grade 3 AC Separation – question about draw weight when recovering #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I had a grade 3 AC separation a couple years ago, and I’ve dropped my draw weight to 50#. We just wrapped up league shooting tonight, but after an hour my shoulder is wasted. Sometimes it’s difficult to raise my arm after league, so I’m considering getting a 40-50# bow and dropping the weight to 45# or so. The problem is, I’m not sure if I want to drop under a 50-60# bow in case I’m able to recover some more strength. In in my mid 50’s, so that may be a pipe dream.

Has anyone out there had this injury, and if so, after shooting consistently, did your strength come back? Shooting my bow is probably one of the best things in my life, but a new setup is a significant investment.

Thanks

Draw weight advice for hunting season #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I was able to shoot my bow today for the first time in over 6 months. Draw weight is at 70lbs. My group sizes were about 3 inches with broadheads at 40 yards. Ive hunted with the exact same set up for the last 2 years with no issues, however I was practicing a lot more before the previous seasons. I did not struggle to draw the bow at all, but just did not feel as comfortable as i normally would. I shot about 20 arrows with only minimal fatigue. I am considering dropping the weight to about 65 lbs, but am worried about having to sight in the bow after changing the draw weight. The bow is a mathews halon 6 70 lb draw weight with 30" draw length, my sight is an axcel accutouch carbon pro single pin, so i would have to use a new sight tape.

Would you guys just stick with the initial draw weight since it is shooting well or drop the weight?

Peak weight #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Do most bows really perform better at peak draw weight? If so, how much better? I have a 70 lb. Reign 6 that I was thinking of backing down to 65 pounds. I really have no problem drawing the 70 pounds smoothly, but I have battled a bout of tendinosis in my draw arm, and I thought backing it down 5 pounds or so might help recovery and/or let me shoot longer sessions. Also, I have a short draw length (26.5"), and I would prefer shooting 70 lbs. for elk hunting. I prefer my Reign in comfort setting by the way. Any thoughts, or similar issues dealt with?
