Hi all, I just purchased a 90lb @28" Dwyer Dauntless and could use some help with arrow selection.  What does every one think about carbon vs wood? I have a 50lb self bow, 65lb martin hunter, and a few compounds but nothing this heavy and i have never used carbons in anything but my compounds.  Thanks

Whiskey, you'll have great difficulty finding wood strong enough. You might try starting a new thread on the subject, because your question will get lost here.

Ok, Thanks for the advice. I'm new to the online stuff and honestly don't even know how to start a thread... >< Sorry if the question is out of place.

No problem, Whiskey. Just go to the top or bottom of this page and click on the button to start a new topic. There are plenty of folks here who will be glad to help. There's a similar button for each of the topic areas.

We all gotta start somewhere!

Thanks for sharing !

Just dropped a question to powwow about the difference between spruce and douglas fir, and here kinda is the answer ! This site is a goldmine! Does anyone have experience about spruce and  douglas fir arrows, pros and cons? I would like to make douglas fir arrows, but the shafts/wood here in Finland is hard to get item, but spruce is common. So should I just settle with spruce and kinda think I carry fir arrows  ;)

Riivioristo, you should be able to find Norway (Scotch) pine in your area. It was a favored wood of European archers, and called "red deal" in the old literature.

Jerry, I just sent you an e-mail message.

This is a great quick ref chart. I am sure you could go into all sort of length to get virtually every wood known to mankind, but the ones covered are the woods generally available most places. Cool, thanks.

Thanks Don,

I've been looking all over for the Easton 75 charts showing the 2115's.

BSFN, you can thank Terry Green for those charts- he edited them in. I'm just a wood guy.
