Nock, nock. Who's there?

I am in arrow hell. Ok, maybe I'm being a bit dramatic, but there is no easy, concise way to make a arrow selection without a lot of holding your breath and crossing your fingers. Then AFTER you get your shiny, new expensive dozen, you find out if they actually work with your set up. Part of the problem is that we don't have a shop in the area that carries a good selection of recurve shafts that can set up a few bare shafts that are in the ballpark to try before you buy.

There is a golden opportunity here folks. 3 Rivers Archery has this set up for hunting and traditional recurve bows. Unfortunately, their system does not cover target set up. My setup is not even on their chart. Then, you go to Easton and use their online chart and it gives you completely different data. THEN, the common wisdom online is that you go up one - whyyyyy!? Some engineering student that shoots needs to use this as a project and quantify the data for the rest of the world. A perfect thesis.

Finally got my new rest and aperture in. Need to spend some time setting up on Sat. WNY tournament on Sunday morning.  Will get a baseline score and have something to work from for the season.  Once I have that and my arrows in, should be in great shape.  Everything is starting....
