Gold Tip — Spine Selector

Arrow Charts

The Easton Arrow Chart. Easton are the world leaders in competition arrow making. Eastons Chart covers all the Carbon , Aluminium, and Carbon/Aluminium Composite Arrows that Easton produce.

It also is a guide to the stiffness needed to get your arrows to fly from your bow even for non Easton Arrows. This can be done by looking at the range of ‘Spine’ number for the arrow most likely to suit your bow and arrow length. Spine is a numerical stiffness measure which is applicable to all arrows.

For Wooden Arrows there is a different chart on the pages for the Wooden Arrows but the principle is the same.

Carbon Arrow Basics {amp} Measurement Standards, Research Guide

Arrow shaft length also must be matched to your bow. Drawing an arrow that’s too short is dangerous because it may slip off the bow. In contrast, an arrow that is too long adds unnecessary weight and weakens the spine of the arrow. Arrow tables can help you make the right selection.

Aluminum arrows are labeled by their outside diameter and the wall thickness of the shaft. For example, if an arrow is labeled 2013, the arrow has a 20/64-inch outside diameter and a 13/1000-inch-thick shaft wall. A thicker shaft provides greater stiffness.

Aluminum and carbon-fiber combination arrows are measured by spine deflection. A smaller number means that the arrow has a stiffer spine. For example, 3-60/340 means three wraps of carbon-fiber with an aluminum core tube diameter of 60 and a spine stiffness rating of 340.

Carbon arrows also are labeled to indicate their spine deflection. The most common spine sizing values are 340, 400, and 500. As with combination arrows, a smaller number means the arrow has a stiffer spine. Therefore, a value of 340 indicates a stiffer and heavier spine while a value of 500 indicates the lightest and most flexible spine.

Arrow Sizing Chart

You can
download a printable version of the sizing chart.

* The UL 30-50 shafts are also available for use in this spine selection, depending on your setup.

These are based on a 100 gr. point, if you use a 125 gr. point you may need to use a stiffer spine

if you use a 85 gr. point you may need to use the weaker spine.

For help finding the right shaft please visit an
authorized dealer. You also can contact Black Eagle Arrows by Email or call (678) 208-3429

Arrow Selection Guide Tips

These are general Guidelines. Please see your local Black Eagle Dealer for proper arrow fitting or
contact us.

These are based on a 100 gr. point, if you use a 125 gr. point you may need to use a stiffer spine if you use a 85 gr. point you may need to use the weaker spine.

In order to properly select the right arrows for your specific bow, you need to identify several variables, and make your selection accordingly. We will briefly discuss these variables, and how they affect your arrow needs.

The first variable you need to look at is draw weight. As draw weight increases, so should arrow rigidity (spine). Also, we strongly recommend that you use an arrow with at least 5 grains of weight per pound or draw weight (if you are shooting a 60 lb. bow, you should use and arrow of not less than 300 grains). This includes your field point or broadhead.

The next factor we will discuss is arrow length. For practical purposes, we use arrow length above draw length. Since the recent trends have been toward drop-away style arrow rests which are mounted to the rear of the riser, arrow length and draw length are no longer evenly proportional. Given a specific arrow spine, an arrow that is shorter will be more rigid than a shaft of the same spine that is longer. For example, if you have a 60 lb. bow with a 24″ arrow, you would need a more flexible shaft than a 60 lb. bow with a 30″ arrow.

If you have any questions about selecting the proper arrow for your bow that isn’t covered here, we will be glad to
assist you.

Arrow Types.

There are arrows made of Fibreglass, Carbonfibre, Aluminium, Wood, and Aluminium/CarbonComposite.

Which one to choose? Here is a brief guide to what most people use and why.

Fibreglass: Robust but heavy: Will take a lot of knocks. Usually used at the Leisure end of archery.

Aluminium: Made from light weight tubing: These make a very good reliable and relatively easy to use arrow for shooting at the short and middle distances outdoors. Also these are used by most people for indoor shooting as they are strong, accurate and reasonably priced.

There is a wide range of sizes available to suit almost all sizes of archer and strengths of bow. There are also different models at increasing price. You pay more for increasing hardness of the alloy and better straightness tolerances which in turn provides more accuracy.

Choices of Arrows in Aluminium:

  • Easton Neos : excellent entry level arrow: one diameter of shaft for all different lengths,

  • Easton Jazz and Tribute Models 75 Alloy: Better arrow : greater shaft hardness and selection of diameters for different lengths and stiffness.

  • Easton XX75 Platinum Model75 Alloy: Better again: A favourite of many archers good hardness but still able to take some knocks without being too brittle.

  • Easton X7 Eclipse: Best Hardness and Straightness: The top aluminium arrow.

  • Easton x23 : Big diameter arrows for getting higher scores for indoor competition

Once you are shooting 70m, 90mor 100 yards or more then you should probably think about Carbon Arrows .

Carbon Arrows and Carbon/Aluminium Composite: Light and Stiff with smaller diameter than just Aluminium, this means they go further plus have less side wind drift and the arrows are faster with less rise and fall on the way to the target.

Carbon arrows can be a little less forgiving of archer errors and need tuning to the bow well to get good clearance. Used by most competitive archers shooting the outdoor distances . Carbon arrows start at the Entry Level and progress tobetter quality models right through the range to the top level models in Aluminium/Carbon Composites as are widely used in the World Championships and Olympic Games.

Choices of Arrows in Carbon and Carbon /Aluminium:

  • Easton Inspire 750: Leisure and Entry Level one diameter, one stiffness, Carbon Arrow.

  • Easton Apollo: Next Step Carbon Arrows in Several Diameters and Stiffness grades( called spine), good for target and field archery. Need to select size from chart .

  • Easton Carbon One : All Carbon Construction, Step up from the Apollo, in a selection of diameters and sizes with sophisticated components for fine tuning and customising to your needs. Excellent for target and field shooting. Need to select size from chart.

  • Easton ACC Aluminium/ Carbon Arrows: The Aluminium/Carbon Composite Arrows are the top end range by Easton the worlds top arrow maker. ACC are parallel carbon shafts on a fine Aluminium core and excellent for all distances. Choice of Stiffness and diameter. Need to select size from chart. These are a very popular high end arrow and perform very well.

  • Easton ACG Aluminium/ Carbon Arrows: Similar to the ACC, parallel arrow shaft using one core tube size, different thicknesses of carbon to provide different stiffness sizes.

  • Easton ACE Aluminium/ Carbon Arrows: In particular the Recurve Target Archers favourite top of the range arrows. Used for long distance and all outdoor shooting. The Shafts are tapered to the ends and come in a selection of sizes. See Charts. Big range of components.

  • Easton X10 {amp}amp; x10 Pro Tour Aluminium/ Carbon Arrows: Top of the range arrows; Designed for the optimum result at 70 meters and for Recurve and Compound Shooting.

  • Easton Triumph All Carbon Arrows; Big Diameter Arrow for indoor shooting. Limited range of sizes and stiffness only , to suit indoor shooting.
  • Easton FMJ Carbon/ Aluminium Arrows; Limited range for Heavy Draw Bows and Compounds, Carbon on the inside.
  • Easton Axis Carbon Shafts Traditional Wood look finish 5mm Shafts. For the traditional Bow Shooter

Wooden Arrows: Traditional for Longbow and for Traditional Archers Generally. Starts at the entry level wood arrows and then there is a selection of wood shafts matched to bow weight and arrow length which are available as for Aluminium and Carbon arrows. Widely used by Field Archers ,Longbow Archers, and Traditionalists.

Choices of Arrows with WoodenShafts:

  • Longshot Economy Wooden Arrows: Two sizes, Small Diameter 5/16 » for lighter weight pull bows ,and Larger diameter 11/32″ for heavier weight pull bows. Good for Longbow, Field , Roving….. and as ammunition !

  • Longshot Wooden Field Arrows: Choice of Two Diameters and a range of Stiffness .

  • POC Premium Wooden Fletched Arrows: Nicely prepared and selected shafts for matched sets of wood arrows.

  • POC Elite Wooden Fletched Arrows: Top of the Range Selected Shafts for good arrow match made in sets of 6 or 12.

  • Longshot Flu Flu Wooden Arrows: Made to set off fast and slow down rapidly. Not usually used in competition shooting but rather for have a go situations, or to stop the arrow travelling any distance.

Comment : You should to make up some of your own wooden arrows to understand about arrows.

The satisfaction of making your own arrows as well as the lesson from making them is worth the effort

Front of Center

Gold Tip - Spine Selector

The arrow’s point is heavier than its fletchings. A front-of-center number describes the percentage of an arrow’s total weight in its front half. Photo Credit: USA Archery.

To further complicate arrow-weight calculations, you must know how weight is distributed across the arrow. The arrow’s point is heavier than its fletchings. A front-of-center number describes the percentage of an arrow’s total weight in its front half. FOC determines an arrow’s accuracy and is critical for long-range shots.
