Hey guys. Couple of questions. Just started playing around with my sons 30lb recurve. 1st question is where do you guys buy your arrows. Ive got no local archery shop by me so all my stuff has to be online. 2nd question is which spine / weight chart do you go by. When looking at the Easton arrow chart they say I should use 2018 to 2212 game getter arrows. When looking at other sights they say I should be using 1816 or1913 size arrows. So who is right. I would tend to go with the manufacture of the arrows but i am seeing a lot of the lower weights/spine size recs. I would be using 125 grain field points on the shafts and have them at 30 in. So who is right Easton or other people?

Thanks....

I wouldn't worry a lot with a 30# recurve, But Easton Knows exact what they are talking about when it comes to arrows, also, you might want to check into carbon arrows.Tom

Ditto. If you get them from a good dealer they are going to ask what lb bow and give you the right ones.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
