New to the sport of archery. Purchased a Courage 60" Recurve 50# bow. Picked up some arrows from sporting goods store and started shooting. Needless to say, arrows flew all over target. What is and how does one determine ones "draw". What is best arrow length, composition, etc. any and all info is welcomed.

I have a 62" Samick Sage 40 lb. bow that I just got with the fast flight flemish string. I have a 28 inch draw(70 inch arm span divided by 2.5 giving 28 inches.)So I was thinking I needed 29.50 arrow length.what kit do I need and any other info that might be helpful.

How is the shaft measured? Will a 29" shaft measure from the valley of the nock to the end of the taper or to the start of the taper? When trying to determine spine, should the arrow length include the length of the broadhead/point or just the shaft?
10/21/2014 by Eric
Arrow lenght is measured from valley of the the nock to the start of the taper. Arrow lenght does not include the lenght of the point only the lenght of the shaft.

Hello I asked about the nocks on test kit B and was told classic index nocks but also asked about replacing them with a tighter nock.
What nock can I replace the classic index with to get a tighter fit? What nocks have A TIGHTER, narrower throat? nocks on test kit arrows to loose.
1/15/2014 by ike from VT
I would suggest trying the Snap On Nocks (Item# 0117X).

i just ordered a test kit but dont know which color fletchings match to which arrow spine. I got the 45#-65# mid kit.
1/14/2014 by morton
There should be a sticker inside the box identifying the spine.
Henry the Ming Archer
45#-50# = Blue
50#-55# = Red
55#-60# = White
60#-65# = Yellow
1/14/2014 by Sam from 3Rivers Archery
This information should be printed inside the original arrow box on the top flap.

The spin goes incresed in alphabetic order : *B*lue is much more ligth
weigth than the most heavy *Y*elow
So the order of increased spin weigth is Blue, Red, White & Yelow

Unless they have changed things, the blue fletchings will have the lightest spine (#45-50 in your case), followed by red (#50-#55), white (#55-60), and yellow (#65-up). There should have been an lnformation card or sheet sent with the test kit which outlined this. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Do the test kits come with 125 gr. field points already installed if you chose to have them mounted?
1/1/2014 by Chris from MI
I always mount my own points. Sorry I could not help more.
1/1/2014 by Anonymous
I actually ordered the field points mounted and I received just the arrow
shafts and I was billed just for the arrow shafts.
Go figure, but it worked out in the end. I just ordered some broadheads
and mounted them myself.

No, the Hunter Arrows Test Kit come without field points, and are sold full length. They need to be cut to length, point tapered, then points installed.
1/2/2014 by Johnathan Karch from 3Rivers Archery
They come without points. The actual performance of an arrow depends on the spine, the point weight, the length of the arrow and the strength of the bow. The kit is a set of arrows with different spines. You have your bow and your draw length. Determine how much longer than your draw length you need the arrows to be (usually one inch or so longer than your draw length). Now you have the bow strength and the length of the arrow. (You can use the arrow spine chart from the 3Rivers site as a guide to get you into the ball park.)
You can test how the different spines shoot with your bow. Pick a point weight. Use it on all the arrows. Compare how they shoot. If you find one that works well, you are finished. If not, try different point weights. You can try different point weights, by removing the points and putting new ones on. They go on the wood arrows with hot glue, so just reheat the points on the arrows to pull them off. Then they are ready for new points of a different weight.
Good luck in your efforts & good shooting,

Will these test arrows accept screw-in field points? Should I bother with testing various field points if I'm only killing round bales?
11/30/2013 by ApisJ from Deep East Tx
No screw in points these are wood arrows. They take glue on points.
12/1/2013 by Anonymous
Depends on what you're trying to achieve.
You can screw in field points, I bought the shaft test kit
And field point test kit to help determine spine and point
Weight. It also helped me to adjust my broad head weight
So it matches.

The test arrow will not accept screw in points unless you install Wood screw adapters, Item #4364 or we can help you determine what arrow you will need if you give us a call at 3Rivers Customer service 1-866-587-9501. We will need your draw lenght and the poundage of the bow.

I have a kaya wind fighter #55 korean bow. I am using the gwan jung #4 arrows for target practice and was wondering if you know of a comparable wood or carbon arrow possibly for hunting? I was thinking of ordering the hunters arrow test kit, but I'm not sure. thank you
10/31/2013 by morton
I will need to know your draw lenght and arrow lenght before I would recommend the correct arrow spine for you. if i go by your bow weight alone I would suggest KIT B and a glue on point test kit.
11/4/2013 by K from 3 Rivers Archery
I’m not familiar with the set up you are using, but try the number 2 test kit; it has heavier arrows that should work with your bow. Good luck!

I have a 48-50 pounds longbowbow and my draw lenght is between 30" and 31". My longbow has no arrow shelf.
Which kit should i try?
9/29/2013 by dariogar
Get kit B. I also shoot off the knuckle with a 50# hickory selfbow. I found the 45-50 (white fletched) test arrows give me the best consistency. You may also want to get the field point test kit and try different point weights. I typically attach the points with a wrap or two of electrical tape until I find the combination that works best. This way I can change the points without having to cut the shaft.
10/1/2013 by Anonymous
I would recommend Kit B
10/2/2013 by Sam from 3Rivers Archery
If I am buying a 40-45# long bow with a 28" draw length which cut and taper shafting should I get? Also which test kit would you suggest; kit A, kit B, or kit C ?
9/20/2013 by White Thunder from Monrovia, CA
Kit A has every weight combo you need to figure out what your bow will shoot the best.
I would recommend Kit A.
If your draw length is 28", I would cut the arrows at 29 1/2"
