Default Buying Field Points

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I figure it can't hurt to ask. In any case, I'm wanting to order some 100 grain field points from BassPro, but there are options for 21/64, 22/64, 18/64, 20/64. I went to EastonArchery.com but wasn't able to find the exact specs on my arrows. I shoot 2113's. Thanks for any help.

Default RE: Buying Field Points

You would need 21/64ths.

The first two numbers on an aluminum arrow denote the arrows outside diameter in 64ths of an inch and the last two numbers denote the arrows wall thickness in thousandths of an inch. So your arrow is 21/64 of an inch in diameter with walls that measure .013" or 13 thousandths of an inch.

Buying field points you do not need to know the wall thickness but that number comes into play if you ever need to replace an insert. Because the wall thickness would have an effect on the inside diameter of the arrow making it larger or smaller.

Hope this helped.

Wow, thanks a bunch for that info! I was sure hoping I wasn't supposed to be able to measure that accurately with a tape measure!
