wood is what I started with ,long ago and now have gotten rid of all of my carbons and gone back to wood completely use cedar and Douglas fir Have PTF's ranging form 47#'s to 50#'s at my 26 inch draw and PSR 57#'s and a PL 50 #'s at my 26" I shoot 60 - 65# spined woods 27"BOP (125 grain) and they do great out of all of these bows point is (wood shafts you will find more forgiving than aluminum and much more forgiving than carbon) Stu Millers calculator gives 60# spine as perfect for the 50" recurve (PTF) and they bare shaft great our of that bow ; If you have atleast enough spine there is a range what will work good

the Stu Miller calculator gives a spine of 72#'s for wood 11/32" shafts cur 30"BOP with a 125 grain point and 3 5" feathers for your bow and poundage and draw length would guess 70-75 # spine range would be your choice

got my last batch of 100 from Sherwood shafts in Oregon (Douglas Fir) very good quality they have a website (google) can by by the dozen and ge premimum , and they offer tapering and cut to length if you are not set up for it (the Fir don't cut very well with one of those pincel sharpener type of tapering tools) Kustom King has cedar (goten good batches form them in the past) I do alot of stump shooting and prefer the Fir (hold up better)

I used the Stu Cal to buy some arrows and they flew terrible. Not sure if it was my calculations or just the Arrow smith fault but now I go with whispering wind Arrows Bob Burton and let him work the magic, you won't be sorry. I use to use Arrow Art, but they went out of business they made the best arrows. Ray and Marta Perkins there Arrows were the very best woods used them for years.

Stu's calculator is very accurate (Just gotta put in the right parameters for your bow) will get you way closer than arrow charts
