What does one have to do to - Cyrille 1

to get an inquiry replied to? I recently asked what spine weight in aluminum arrows is recommended for a 66" long bow 50# @ 27". I would also like to know what would be the recommended point weight?

Usually need to decide on the point weight & arrow length before picking the appropriate spine for the arrow. Try looking at Easton's arrow selection chart on their web site.

Would need to know your draw length , and what weight broad heads you want to shoot Type longbow I shoot the PL 50#@26" I can use wood spined 50-55# cut 27"BOP with 125 grain heads OR gold tip carbons (traditionals) 35-55# spine cut 27" BOP with standard aluminum inserts and 250 grain tips (or 125 grain screw in steel broad head adaptors with 125 grain broadheads hot melted on the inserts) OR 2016 aluminums cut to 27" BOP with 250 grain points or 1916 with 175 grain points I use the wood mostly , followed by the carbons

The bow is a Howard Hill type L.B. 50# @ 27 " I draw 27" so I assume the arrows would be approximately 27. 5 or 28" or maybe 27.75 I would be using 145gr. screw-ins and Stos BHs. I use wood mostly also but was wondering how aluminums would fly from that bow.

Hello Robert, I searched my emails and cannot find your inquiry. I also could not find your catalog request. Did you send them through the website?

Cyrille, the advice that Buckstopap gave you is about as good as you will get when it comes to arrows. When it comes to the bow, and arrow, the arrow is most of the time very specific to the archer, and at times to the bow as well. You will see in the Easton chart several arrow sizes recommended for a certain draw & weight of bow. Pick one out and start with a 1" to 1 1/2" longer shaft and start bare shafting until you get it to perform for you, your shooting form, and technique. The best anybody can do is as Toby said "he guesses". My life long friend and I shoot the same PSA_X model at 48Lb@28". Back when we shot aluminum I shot 2016s-w/125gr broad head 29 1/2". He on the other hand had to shoot 2114S- 29 1/2" long. Now that modern times have caught up with both of us old farts we both shoot carbon arrows.....both of us shoot .500 spine - 29 1/2" long....go figure......fun and the best of luck to you!

Hello Robert, If you need something it is better to send us an email or give us a call. We really do not monitor the Widow Wall everyday. Too busy building bows. Thanks, Roger

if you are talking about a hill long bow as your post states, you might want to shoot a 1916 with at least 175-200 gr. up front.

Patience is a virtue for those who hunt the deer & other game with a trad bow.I have finally learned that the journey is more important than the destination. Being more patient & more tolerant has provided me with more positive days & better outcomes. In times past, lack of patience degraded my life more than I realized. Golly gee whiz! They gave me the wrong degree at graduation. I should have received a philosophy degree instead of ?? Rest assured that BW strives to have the best bows & offer the best service. If a computer malfunction or human error causes something to go off track, they will correct it as soon as they become aware of it. Give them a call or send an email & they will do their best. On another point, when I was at BW last Dec., it looked like Roger & John were working harder. LOL to everybody!
