Thread: carbon arrows for longbow

    Default carbon arrows for longbow

    I was thinking about breaking out the old longbow and was looking at shooting goldtip arrows with it cause I can pick them up for about 45.00 a dozen. My question is what spine to use, would you use something lighter or would you use the same as they recommend for the compound bows. Better yet if anyone knows where to get some decent wood shafts for less than 80.00 a dozen I would shoot them.

    Default What arrows to shoot?

    If you go to www.goldtip.com they have a size selection chart which includes traditional bows. This chart will help you select the correct size arrows.

    I believe Bill at Back Country Archery, has some nicely done wood arrows for $60ish a dozen.

    If you're in fairbanks I can get you set up the first time with the right arrows to be shooting as far as wood is concerned.

    I don't shoot carbons anymore unless they are weighted and I really would rather shoot wood. Reason being is I believe the main reason my old bow cracked was shooting to light of an arra. Not to mention it ended up getting massive handshock due to the excess energy left over from the to light of an arrow. Don't take that the wrong way I dont care how light of an arrow you shoot, just my experience.
