Just New and looking to learn
« on: January 21, 2016, 09:01:00 PM »
Hello everyone, Im pretty new to the traditional archery thing. I have shot compound for about 15 years now, but the fun just isn't there anymore. On top of that there is just to much to rely on with compounds, and there just isn't that connection with the bow. So after lots of shopping and talking with different people at archery shops i go to. I was pointed in the direction of Jim Belcher and Sky archery. Jim and his wife are awesome, Great people great shop and amazing bows. Since i have purchased a trophy long bow 30#@28" 66" and a Thunder recurve 55#@28" 56". I was wondering if anyone could help me to decide on what arrows to shoot. I have been playing around with some old aluminum's that I threw some feathers on. I like the larger diameter but they are just plain old heavy. was thinking cedar but i know nothing about cedar arrows. Anything would be a help.

Thank you all
Good things come to those who shoot straight

Corey, 30-35 spine woodies and 60-65 would be a good starting point...depending on what point weight you wanted and if you were drawing a full 28"

Yes I have a 28.5" draw length and do you have any recommendations for point weight? Planned on a fixed 2 blade for hunting

Welcome Corey.
     Depending on where you live in Michigan,you may want to check out the Traditional Expo that starts the 29th in Kalamazoo. Also the MTB Banquet in Grand Rapids at the end of February.

I use aluminums, and heavy ones. Heavy arrows quiet a bow down and add to penetration. I also like cedars. Lots of good things about wooden shafts. The trying to decide part is fun.
