Bruce...Daves setup goes roughly like this!
High Country Carbon SSR bow
DRAW--29''
Weight--62-64 lbs.
He is currently shooting easton st.epic 500's!

I think he is looking for a way to tell if this is the correct arrow for his setup? Me and him shoot together and we both are curious on this subject? When we went to the bowshop and asked the tech. what arrows would be best spined for our bows, we both walked out of there with st.epics i got 400's and he had 500's?? Me and him are both not very sure about the tech and think he could of just handed us any arrow and said "Yup these will work 4 Ya"?? Hope this helps You!
Stop using colors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!As I quick scan I thought you were Len

There is nothing you can do to the 500's to make them work. You'd have to lower your draw weight to 47 lbs (not possible with your bow), shoot a 85 grain tip and add wraps to your arrows to make the 500's correctly spine for your bowwith 27" arrow.

I'd return them to the shop and tell the guy to give you the correct arrows. Since he's the guy that told you they were what you needed.

Youth bows or short draw length bows for women would use the 500's. They definitely still fill a purpose.

The best thing you can do with those arrows is to start calling around and find out who does archery classes for children and donate the 500's. They'll cut them down and use them.

That way they do not go to waste and at the same time you are helping a child get into the sport by supporting your community.

What neck of the woods in MD are you in?

thanks MdDave

I was wondering if it's the same shop that the guy that owns Appalachian Archery was talking about. But I think the shop he's referring to was closer to Hancock. I think the guy that owned it was getting older and sold the land for over a $1,000,000. It still could be the same shop.

No, Champion Archery was operated By Jesse Broadwater. I think that his father owned the land & building because it is behind his house. There was a family problem and Jesse moved to Pennsylvania. However, he is still shooting for Hoyt. He won Vegas in 2006and placed 4th this year.

Appalachian Archery and the other shop are owned and operated by other people.

Derek Dobrzanski owns Appalachian Archery. That much I knew from purchasing my bow and other stuff from him andhis shopisalong the way on my trips from Johnstown, PA to my place in Glen Burnie.

I was just looking for clarification on the shop that MdDave said about and how close it was to Hancock.

I need to find out how his Kodiak Island Brown Bear hunt went.
