Default Easton Alum Chart For Recurves?

Does anyone have a Easton reference chart showing alum shaft sizes/weights/spines for recurves?

?

I wouldn't recommend using it, I don't think that I have heard of anyone successfully using it. It's usually way too stiff. I would suggest using Arrows by Kelly's chart. I believe it is under foxfire archery or arrows by kelly if you search it.

Thanks - that Arrows by Kelly's chart is just what I was seeking. Looks like a 2016 is going to be the one I want to try...19XX's are a little to small in diameter for my liking. I'm Old School and like 20/64 and 21/63 diameter shafts the best.

The Foxfire/ABK chart is probably the most accurate for trad bows, but keep in mind that it's just a ball-part estimation on their part.

There's way too many variables in bow performance, shooting styles, strings, nock fit, etc. etc. etc. for any chart to be dead-on for everyone. You'll have to do the fine tuning based on your results.

You can always go a tad heavy on spine and change point wieght. I like shooting heavier BH's anyway.

Well, they would work for my 66lb longbow.But they might work with a 250gr tip. Have you tried it? Thats a heavy spine.

No I haven't tried them yet but plan to. Does anyone actually MAKE target points and/or broadheads THAT heavy?
