“Archery Fit” Ep.7 Arrow Spine | Bow Life TV
Archery Tips | Adjusting Arrow Spine
On this episode of “Archery Fit” fueled by MTN Ops, I quickly run through some archery tips regarding arrow spine. During this episode, I wanted to discuss how to change arrow spine and why you may not be getting the best results even when you have the correct spine.
Let’s say you have a 300 spine arrow and you start adding weight to it. The more weight you add to the front or back of that arrow, the weaker that spine becomes. The spine also becomes weaker as the arrow gets longer. Essentially, you can tune a bow just by focusing on the arrow.
For example, if you are paper tuning your bow and experience a high tear (the arrow is weak), that is telling you to either shorten the arrow or reduce the weight of the point on the front of the arrow. On the other hand, if you get a low tear (the arrow is stiff) you can either shoot longer arrows or add weight to the point.
Your arrow’s fletching, nock, and point are all areas where you can adjust the arrow spine to be either weaker or stiffer. Your arrow is not just a 300 spine arrow, everything you do effects that arrow’s performance, your accuracy, and what your shot forgiveness will be.
