    Got it today from Lancaster.
    45#/28"
    Just so happens my DL is right about 28" too.
    Set the brass bread at 1/8th below 0 on the gauge. Arrows flew true.
    Primary arrows are 500 spine 29" with 125gr points.
    Secondary are coat to 32" 500 spine and 145gr points.
    The layer seemed to kick tail it to the left in release.
    Need to do bare shaft tuning to improve things.
    But my initial impression is a Recommend.

    Are you shooting wood or carbon shafts?

    Carbon.
    500 spine. Shot through some paper today. Adjusted the top weights a little. The 145gr on the 31.5" was to much. Rise arrows were originally set up for my daughters 30# Polaris.
    Need to buy some more 100gr field points. That also gives me more options for broad heads.

    These guys are worth a look on arrows. They spine index them for you. I order bare shafts and put the cock vane on the indexed part. They will also fletch them for you. But in your case you could bare shaft them, then decide where you want the spine to be. I've ordered 3 arrow orders and a press from them. Talked to the owner once and he was great to deal with.

    Based on various charts I have seen, 500 spine is what I should using. If I tried 400 spine I assume is need a heavier point to correct for that.

    OK. Measured spine is different than physical spine. Every arrow has a spine, stiff side and weak side. If you find the physical spine you can orient you arrows the same way. So they flex the same way, every time. As long as the shooter does their part. Jerry at SSA marks the physical spine of every arrow he sends out.

    My arrows were built by Dave at Greensboro Traditional Archery. I'll check out SSA for more. Can one ever have too many arrows?

    No, but I am a traditionalist. I shoot Port Orford cedar or Easton Legacy aluminum arrows.

    Aluminum arrows are the most popular with traditional archers because the cost to performance ratio is excellent.

    If I am shooting 500 spine carbon what would the equivalent aluminum be?

    For your bow above I would say 1916 wound fly like darts. I have likely 3 dozen Easton Legacy 1916 arrows and they shoot great in bows from 35lb up to 50lb. In my bows 55-60lb I shoot 2016 Easton Legacy arrows. I draw about 27.5 and have my arrows cut to 29" and for back yard target shooting I use a 100G field point.

    FS Discount Archery is my general go-to for Easton Legacy arrows. You can get a dozen Legacy arrows fletched with 5" feathers and inserts for less than $90 shipped. You will need to get a dozen field points of course.
