Adding Weed Eater Trimmer Line to Arrows
« on: July 28, 2019, 04:41:24 PM »
For those that may want to up their arrow weight without adding more insert weight or buying new arrows, try adding some trimmer line to your arrow shafts.


I made a short tutorial video how I do it.
Ive been using it for years.


This isnt a debate about FOC or spine, just something to try if interested.


This trimmer line was .080 in diameter. 26.6 inches weighs 38grains

This Idea works. I added 70 gr with a .105 line.
It really helps with penetration and quiets down the bow.   :grin:

I tried this method too with some success. I did find it made arrows noisy and if the nock came off you had trim line everywhere. Look into getting the weighted tubes from 3 rivers archery or your local shop. They weigh 5 GPI and cost $1.50 a piece. Ill never mess with trim line again. Keep one thing in mind, these tubes did stiffen my arrow spine so I also went to a heavier tip. Im very happy with these results!
