How heavy are your arrows for your trad bows?
« on: September 12, 2019, 09:07:59 PM »
my recurve is a Damon Howat Hunter that is 50# @28.
Brace height at 7.5
My arrows are Warrior 500 full length with tube inserts
Broadheads are Zwicky 170grains
Total arrow weight 560-570 grains.


Seems to work great but Im new at the game. What are your arrow weights for your trad bows?

I shoot a 53 pound recurve bow with 28.5 inch long carbon arrows, 100 grain insert, 140 grain broadhead. My total weight is 530 grains.

Typically I like to keep arrow weight between 9.5 and 10.5 gpp ( grains per pound ).
