Arrow Length
« on: July 23, 2006, 09:40:41 PM »
Let's talk about arrow length.   I know the type and placement of your rest is the major consideration, but is there a rule of thumb that you guys go by?

I don't know about the Pro's but I don't like the broadhead over my hand. I never liked the thoughts of an overdraw. I try to keep the broadhead at least an inch in front of my bow hand

31" is usually a good round length...right???
your mission if you choose to accept it, is to go through the boiler maker to get to the Gut Pile Style

 have the guy/gal at your pro shop check from draw length, you could be 28in to 32in. this is one of the most importin things that need to be done right when sitting up your bow.

i always try to keep my arrow about a 1/2 to an 1" out past my rest.  depending on what spine arrow your shooting makes a difference also.  whether or not they need to cut longer to get proper arrow flight for that type of arrow.

There are a thousand different conceptions for arrow length; but this is the best basic one around.....

I have a 28" draw and shoot a 30" arrow. I prefer that arrow to be well in front of my hand and rest. I sometimes use a finger to guide my arrow so this does weigh in for me. i don't like even the back of my braodhead making contact with my finger or being even close to it. I think thats the best bet personally.
