Many archers have spent so much money on high quality bows but ended up skimping on the quality of their arrows. This ends up having a negative impact on their accuracy while on the range as well as while on a hunt.
You may be an experienced archer able to interchange different bows with different arrows for instance using a really good bow like the Mathew’s MQ32 to accurately propela low cost bulk arrow. However, the moment you try a better quality arrow such as the Easton XX78 with the same bow, you will immediately notice that your shooting will improve dramatically. You are guaranteed a better shooting experience if you have better quality arrows in your quivers.
Let’s look at the factors that enhance arrow accuracy.
The straightness of the arrow
For arrows, the straightness listed is measured on a full-length shaft. Experienced archers know that they need arrows in their quivers that have a good reputation for accuracy. This is precisely why arrow manufacturers emphasize on the straightness of their arrows as this has been proven to be an important aspect of the arrow when it comes to accuracy. When shooting a long arrow especially, it is very important for it to be straight to ensure its accuracy.
Spin consistency from the arrow
Spin consistency of an arrow is another factor that has to be taken into consideration when looking for ultimate accuracy. Generally, a spine tester is used to measure the spin of an arrow however, most archers often do not have one with them. So as a tradition, the consistency of the arrow’s spine is judged by its price simply because, the cost incurred to produce an arrow with an extremely consistent spinis high therefore making it end up costing more.
How far you intend to shoot the arrow
By the time you are purchasing your arrows, you need to have a rough idea of how far you intend on shooting them. This is because the distance you intend to shoot them will determine the level of accuracy that is acceptable to you. For instance, if you intend to make 30 yard shots, almost any name brand carbon arrow out there will work for you. However if you are targeting to make up to 60 yard shots, then you will definitely need to consider higher quality arrows.
The weight consistency of the arrow
Weight consistency is another factor that will determine your arrow’s accuracy. Currently, most high quality arrows have a weight consistency of around 0.1 grains for each shaft. If the arrows in your quiver vary in total weight let’s say by more than one grain, then you can be guaranteed to experience a noticeable loss of accuracy. You will notice your arrows hitting low and high at longer distances.
There you have it. Don’t skimp on your arrows if you want to remain accurate.
We would appreciate your thoughts on this especially after you have tested different quality arrows.
