YOUR BACK WIDOW-HOW ACCURATE? - GILBERT

My old hunting buddy, and former business partner just picked up a Hooter Shooter shooting machine. We reinforced a couple of welds and straightened out a bend leg. DANG, this thing is solidly build, and heavy. Somebody must have dropped it at one time or another while loading, or unloading. We decided to run it thru its faces. I ran into my den and strung up my 60" 50lb PSA-X Ebony, and grabbed 6 arrows out of a quiver. Arrows are 3 Rivers Traditional Only carbon .500s. We shot the 6 arrows. The 1st pic shows the group at approx. 20 to 22 yards. WOW!!is all I can say. I was not really surprised my bow had showed accuracy out of my old shooting machine...even though not this tight. After I took the 1st pic Milt drew a circle around the group with a sharpie pen. Walking back he says to me: : "Hey Gil, this arrows are of different length". Sure enough, I had grabbed 6 test arrows 2ea of different length. 2ea 29" long-2ea 29 1/4"long-and 2 ea 29 1/2" long. It seems that my Black Widow is not very particular with spine being this close to each other. The arrow length I shoot is 29 1/2" long. For the heck and why not we decided to shootthis same arrows. As you can see in the 2nd pic they again grouped very well and inside the back circle. I went and got five arrows that I normally shoot...29 1/2" long and shot them. The tighter group with them is shown the 3rd pic. I WILL NEVER BADMOUTH MY BLACKWIDOW EVER AGAIN WHEN I MISS. Now I am looking at my old shooting machine thru the corner of my eye, LOL!!

What characteristic of a bow makes it where it is not critical of arrow spine?
