    Default Assuming

    Assuming a 28" draw and a 150 grain broadhead, a 2117 should do. That would give you an arrow of about 500 grains.

    This is from the Easton Archery chart. But, if you have a archery shop near you, I would ask to try a 2117 and see how it flies. If you have problems, try one a little stiffer or with a little less spline.

    I don't know if this relates much to recurves, but I find the infomation on
    http://www.huntersfriend.com very interesting when looking at arrow selection. Select a help topic from the 'articles & help' column on the left side of the website.
