      Can someone give me some direction about how to determine the proper arrow for a new Blacktail Bow?

      Neat call sign we can’t wait for the story. Welcome aboard! You will get more info then your credit card can handle:D.

      As a start (being a beginner also) I would recommend T.J.Conrad, The Trad Bowhunter’s Handbook. Then decide arrows,wood-aluminum-carbon.

      Enjoy the journey the fun is about to start.

      I already have Conrad’s book. I want carbon arrows but need help figuring out all the details. I want the ‘wood print’ carbons but that doesn’t scratch the surface of arrow selection.

      Good choice carbons are so adaptable. Call 3rivers archery and talk to the experts. My favorite is Dave Echterling well he is a Marine:D.

      Or wait here for a few days for our experts to respond–they are likely hanging around campfires now and drinking tea:shock:

      Welcome aboard mate 😀

      3rivers is a good start if you can call them. For folks here to help they’ll need a little more information. They’ll need to know what draw weight your bow is and how long your draw length is.

      All the best,

      3grizzlies,

      I have used carbon express and 3 rivers trad only by Easton. The trad only are the ones I use now. They are of high quality and made in the US. I cut them with a dremel tool and use wraps and 4 feathers. Before I fletch I use goof off and remove the logo from the shaft so it just looks like wood. I use 50 grain brass inserts hot glued in as well. They sell them in test kits so finding the right shaft can be a little more cost effective.

      Good luck,

      Brennan

      Jim,

      My bow is a Take Down with 3 sets of limbs (40#, 45#, and 50#).

      My wing span is 72″, so the best I can figure is that my draw length is 28.5″.:roll:
