    Default Traditional Arrows Help Please!!!

    Hi everyone
    I need your help. I am going to buy my fiance new arrows for his recurve for christmas but I am unsure as to what to get. I shoot a compound and really don't know much about traditional archery. He has a Brackenbury recurve bow with a draw weight of about 60 or 65 pounds. He has two different weights of arrows. One is an easton 2115 and the other is a easton 2216. the 2216 arrows are some old ones that his father gave him a long time ago and i am not sure were the others came from. Is one better than the other? Also just like everyone else these days i don't have an endless amount to spend this christmas so any suggestions you might have for good arrows that don't cost an arm and leg that would be great.

    Sipsey River has goldtip tradional blems for around $60 per dozen. I think that the blem is in the finish not the the shaft itself. You can call them and they could give you a better recommendation of what to get. (205) 387-2388

    The last thing you need to know is your husbands draw length?

    I recommend you calling 3Rivers Archery Supply. Technical Advice: (866)587-9501. Tell them what your looking for and what your looking to spend. They will set you up with “finished” arrows that will work specifically with your husbands tackle.

    They offer wood, aluminum and carbon arrow choices for traditional archers.

    Is it an original Jim Brackenbury?

    Thank you for your advise. I will work on trying to figure out what his draw length is without having to ask stright out. Yes it is an original Jim Brackenbury bow.

    On second thought he may have cut the arrows he has long for tuning purposes. I wouldn't get finished arrows if it were me. Most trad shooters like to play with different arrow lengths and inserts allowing more flexibility when tuning.

    Uncle Bill at Back Country in Anchorage always has some really nice wood arrows. He will cut to length and install the tips. $105 doz +-. What ever kind of arrow you get, get the shafts full length and get them cut after Christmas. Of course if you do that, you should buy from either Bill or Paul at Archers Den.
