Default RE: Red Wing Hunter

Yes, I have heard that and it's true. Most recurve shooters, if they shoot carbon arrows at all, will have them weighted up. Weight tubes, brass inserts, heavy stainless steel or brass points.... Most of us shoot aluminum or wood arrows. I also like the Carbon Express Terminator Select shafts. They've got all the benefits of ICS carbons but are generally straighter and much more consistent in spine than the all-carbon arrows I've tested. They're a carbon/fiberglass composite shaft so they are relatively heavy already without having to add weight to them.

Your bow is at least 30 years old. It will serve you well for a long time to come if you don't abuse it by shooting too light arrows. I'd not go lower than 8 grains of arrow weight per pound of draw weight. 10 grains per pound would be even better.

Brace height is measuring how far the string is from the deepest part of the grip when the bow is strung.
