Trying to figure out my holding weight, not so straight forward

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Not so straight forward and just a guesstimate, 26" Vanquish riser wound in 3 turns on the bolts, 43# Hex6’s at 26.25" on the button showing 44#, problem is I don’t have decent set of scales (just cheap fishing scales) seems from my Longbows it appears to be consistently showing around 2# less as marked on the scales and as I’m drawing 1" shorter I’m guessing I’m holding around 43 to 44# at anchor.

29" 500 Lightspeed 350g, 3" feathers, 125g point gives me 60y point on (ideal for IFAA 3D), bareshaft showing slightly stiff but I don’t want to increase point weight or poundage as one more turn on the bolts puts me out of my Form comfort zone, at this current setting I’m drilling the 10 ring out to 40y one more turn on the bolts and I start to see a more Form mistakes. I’ve got some 29" 550 Carbon1’s with 120g points on order and I hope these tune a little better.

Today I figured out 70 and 80 yards using riser shelf, felt good to keep them in the score zone at these distances.

Chart for tip weight and spine?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Is there a chart or any kind of measurements that can be done that will tell you how much tip weight changes arrow spine? Got a bow on order and plan on buying correct arrow spine for the bow, but say I wanted to try and shoot my compound arrows (CX Mayhem Hunter 350s). I know I could add tip weight to weaken the spine, but my question is, is there are a chart that tells you how much tip weight would be needed to weaken this arrow (which comes out to roughly a 340 spine) to make it shoot true? Or is it a trial and error type of thing? Arrow length would also have to be considered in the chart I’d assume.

I’m new to this but I’ve seen some posts where ppls hunting arrow setups are with much stiffer spined arrows than recommended with heavy tips. I know it will take some tinkering to find the perfect setup that has the correct spine, heavy for penetration, just the right FOC, etc. But buying multiple arrows with different spines, different weight inserts, and different weight tips, seems like it could add up pretty quick. Any help and info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
David

Can someone school me on proper arrow weight?

Hi,

I shoot a PSE Mustang Recurve at 45#. What is the minimum arrow weight I should be shooting to avoid damage to the bow? My daughter shoots a PSE Razorback recurve at 20#. Same question for her bow.

Thanks!!

Is there any truth or need to find “adjusted draw weight”

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hey guys so I was looking through the Lancaster supply book and saw where Carbon Express had a chart for "adjusted draw weight". So instead of matching up the chart with the weight of the bow, poundage, and cams on your bow it adds or subtracts pounds due to let-off, tip weight, and the IBO of your bow. Just wondering if this was a good idea or just another gimmick. if there is some truth to it my 65lb bow should be shooting arrows spined for a 75 lb bow. And if it is true is it for only CX shafts or is it good for Gold Tip, Easton, Etc? Any Insight on this?

Reducing draw weight on recurve

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I have a bear Kodiak that is 40 yrs old. It pulls 50# at 28. I was wondering if I could short string it to lighten the draw weight. Is this a dumb idea? How much shorter would the string need to be to drop the weight 5#s.

Question on draw weight vs. arrow weight, and why I think most have it wrong.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I have been seeing a lot of threads in regards to arrow weight and draw weight (in hunting applications), most of which say that when you drop draw weight you should, or at least most people do, drop arrow weight. To me this the total opposite of what I think you should do. I think that if you are going to drop draw weight then you need to INCREASE arrow weight to get the same terminal performance as someone shooting a faster arrow with increased draw weight. This has been shown to me more so through the example of my wife’s hunting setup then about anywhere else. I have seen her terminal performance suffer when we drop arrow weight down closer to IBO out of her setup. And I have seen extreme penetration gains when she shoots a heavy arrow. I have posted it here before, but I believe that when you decide to shoot lower draw weight, you are knowingly limiting yourself, and that is ok, heck that is why we archery hunt in the first place. When you shoot lower draw weight you are limiting yourself in regards to forgiveness of trajectory and range already so why not shoot a heavy arrow? What you are doing when shooting a heavy arrow(say anything from 450 up) out of a sub 50lb bow is turning that bow into a very powerful recurve. Think about how many animals including very large and dangerous one have fallen to traditional gear, and those guys thrive on heavy arrows and quality broad heads. I just don’t understand dropping arrow weight when dropping draw weight. Now I know there are exceptions; say you are already shooting a 600gr arrow out of your 70lb bow and decide to shoot a 440gr arrow out of your 60lb bow. That I get because your arrow weight, although lower then I like is still plenty heavy for most game. But examples like this are outside the norm. Now I would like to hear if and how you think I am wrong in this.
