Burgess and Mo,

I’m surprised you guys tuned 500 spine shafts to those weight bows. I just got myself a 45# recurve and just running off the charts, I was thinking 400 would be my best bet for efoc/uefoc set up.

I tuned some 340 spined shafts to a 40# bow a while back, just because I felt like messing around. They tuned perfectly but ended up way too heavy for the bow. I really thought 500’s would be too soft with anything around 200+ grains on the front for a bow in the 40’s.

I was all prepared to go buy a dozen 400’s tomorrow and now you’ve filled my tiny little head with doubts 😥

Dang it.
