      Good day folks im new here and also somewhat new to shooting traditional archery, my question is as follows , what weight of arrow would you guys suggest for someone shooting a 51# longbow at 28 inch draw lenght? Especially in an aluminum arrow, im currently shooting cedar shaft arrows with a 125 grain field point but dont know the weight thus im not sure how to go about picking the proper weight for my bow ? Any recommendations

      thanks

      cheers

      Greetings from South Eastern Arizona.

      My go-to arrow is the Easton 2213.  Very versatile shaft size that will work well in the mid 50# to upper 60# range.

      I get ’em on E Bay.

      I’d look into the Easton Aluminum Arrow Selection chart. It’s worked well for years.

      A 2016 might be good. Works really well in my 47# and 50# longbows.

      For years it seemed if you weren’t shooting a 2117 you were out of the pack. 🙂

      Hi Bob

      Welcome to the forum…

      All the aluminum shafts mentioned are applicable. Give em a try.

      Let us know what you find works best. I don’t shoot much aluminum these days ( used it almost exclusively in my youth) but it is a good tuff shaft material.
