Working Up to Heavier Draw Weight

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi, all. This is my first post on this forum. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

I am 58 years old and recently bought a second-hand bow after a 30-year layoff from archery. I used to shoot a 48# Bear Tigercat a lot and was pretty good at it. But I sold it about eight years ago after not using it for 20 years or so.

I now have a convenient place to shoot and just bought a second-hand bow and other equipment. After trying several bows in my local shop I realized that I was going to want to start off in the 25# range. I’d decided on a PSE Optima because I liked the feel and the ability to upgrade the limbs without buying a whole new bow. But…I then had an opportunity to buy a second-hand Optima at 35# at a price that would let me pick up the 25# limbs for a total investment of the price of a new bow with just one set of limbs.

This (finally) leads to my question. I immediately took the bow out to the range and was able to shoot it but it wasn’t comfortable. I could draw properly and anchor but couldn’t hold comfortably and was rushing my shots. But I could shoot it. I am interested in opinions on whether I’ll be able to work my way up to shooting the #35 pounder comfortably or whether I should invest the $ 90 for the lower strength limbs. I’ll probably only be able to shoot about three times per month.

Thanks again,

Larry

Low weight & short draw arrows?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Does anyone have any recommends for arrows for a shorter draw (approx 27") from a 35lb (@28") longbow?
(for a clubmate)

I would like carbons with durability but have always struggled in the past getting a half decent tune with my wife who has a comparable set-up based on only really having Easton models available at the time. He is a novice but mustard keen! So it would best to find him some not too expensive.

Many thanks in advance

Marc

Restrung bow, draw weight decreased

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

My bow was made to shoot 70# and I got a custom string for it, but when I got it restrung and tested the draw, it had gone down to 55#. Do I need to get the string twisted more, limbs tightened, or what? I completely re did my set up with new strings, new arrows, new sight, and wanna get my stuff right before I waste countless hours trying to sight in a set up that’s not gonna work.

To do?

Question about arrow weight (target oriented)

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Okay, just a few questions for those that like to shoot a faster, more flat trajectory. I have a ilf setup, Hoyt excel, with tradtech black max limbs(wood/glass) I’m pulling right at about 51 pounds on a set up(with a 28.5 draw), been shooting 500 grain arrows out of it, but wanting to move to something a little faster. The 500grain arrows fly alright, drop quickly and are rather slow, so I’m looking to build a more target oriented arrow for my bow, for those longer shots.

I’m wondering as to what gpi I should aim for on the Tradtech black limbs, I haven’t found anywhere listing the minimum gpi to shoot from it, I’m figuring 7-8 gpi should be safe though right? I’ve been looking at the Gold tip ultralight pros, and the Easton Lightspeeds, the gpi for a 500 spine arrow is 6.5 gpi. My draw length is 28.5 amo, so i’ve been cutting my arrows to 27.5(with unibushing and insert/point length I usually end up around a 28.5-29 inch arrow).
I have some Ultralight pro’s already, 400 spine cut to 28.5 with a 85 grain point I shoot out of a older bow(that’s around 345 gpi), and i’ve run them through it and it seems decent enough. The spine seems a little stiff so I’m not sure I’d be able to shoot anything but feathers with those. Could I think bump it down to the 500 spine carbon(6.5 gpi), cut it to 27.5 and get away with it? If I put a 125 grain point in it I’d be right at a 350 grain arrow(7 gpi), but I’m curious as to whether or not the 125 grain point would weaken my spine to much? I’m wanting to fletch it with plastic vanes, so I need a good flex. Or could I get some more 400 spine, cut them to 27.5, and put 100-125 grain points in them and be alright? With the short arrow cut, I’m worried those may be to stiff, and I don’t really wanna have to resort to a heavy point like I did on another set of my arrows.

Or should I just say screw it, and save up for some ACC arrows that are a little heavier at 500 spine(like 7.8-8.1 gpi I think). I have some ACC arrows already, but I’m not a huge fan of the lack of a insert for the lighter ACCs(besides the half out one, which is terrible I think, they’ve splintered most of my arrows with those in them). I’ve shot alot of arrows, but most of the ones I’ve shot have been in the 10 gpi range, with stiffer spines cut to longer lengths to have room for a broadhead, so target oriented arrows are a little newer to me.

Thanks ahead of time, and any information or experience you can give is appreciated.

Bow scale…. Subtract the weight of the bow ?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hello everyone, and thank you for your help.
Here’s my delema, I just bought a scale for weighing the draw weight of my bow.
I hung it on a heavy hook in a rafter in my shop.
I hung my bow on the scale and noted that the weight of my bow all set up is just under 6 lbs.
My question is, do I subtract the weight of my bow from the draw weight when I’m testing the draw weight ?
If so, my draw weight will be very short of what it should be.
I don’t think my pro shop has ever deducted the weight of the bow after checking the draw weight.
I may be reading to much into this, but the voices in my head won’t shut up.

weight tubes?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Well I used to shoot easton axis 340’s with a 100 grain head, blazer vanes, and tracer knocks. I am guessing the finished weight was around 440-460 grains?
I finally shot them all up, lost or broke them in deer, and I was in need of some new arrows. I got a $ 50 gift card to bass pro for Christmas and i bought some Beman ICS speed arrows. They are DEFINITELY faster out of the gate than the heavier axis arrows, however they do NOT stay fast. They drop of CONSIDERATELY after 30 yards. I am wanting to add weight in hopes of maintaining trajectory at longer distances. Has anybody used weight tubes? Do they change spine, are they hard to install? any help-ideas would be nice.

Total arrow weight?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Been looking at fletched arrows on ebay and I understand the 8.1 or 9.4grns per inch etc..They dont tell you in the descriptions what the fletchings weigh or inserts. Do any of you guys have a ball park figure on 2′ blazers? (seems most popular and thats probably what I will go with) insert weight or nock weight?..Im wanting to stay around 360-400 total weight. If it helps my draw is 27-27.5 and not sure on actual draw weight of the revenge,I just have limbs maxed out, specs say 70#. Arrrow length is around 26.5-27.5 some of the charts have me on the border on spine 400-or 340..I have been reading that its better to be over spined so Im figuring a 330-370 spine..Any input will help..thanks

Which arrow weight to shoot?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hey guys I bought a new Hoyt spyder 30 and I got GT expedition hunter arrows for it, they are 28.5" and the total weight is 380gr. Should I keep it this way or add a 50gr insert weight that I already have? I’m shooting 27"/55lbs for turkeys/deer/3d. I’ll also be shooting out to 50 yards. Thanks
