Is there a certain way to figure out how long of an arrow to shoot?Is it based on your draw length?

The guy who cuts arrows for my father and I bases it on our draw length. I dont know how he does it but we told him what our draw length was and he cut, nocked, and put fletching on our arrows. So, if you have a local shop that does work on bows im sure they will do it for you.

If I had to guess I'd say they look at your draw length and give it about 3 or so more inches to allow clearance from the arrow rest.

I think your close rebel.I used to shoot 30 inch arrows with 29 inch draw.I think its usually 1 or 2 inches longer than your draw.I think I saw this on a website somewhere.

That is probably true with rests or overdraws that are behind the "normal"rests position.Thanks

1-2 inches longer than draw length is the norm but if you have an overdraw you can be up to 3 inches shorter. I was able to shoot 28" arrows with a 30" draw the arrow flies faster, flatter, and is more accurate. OOPS sorry for getting off the subject.

One inch from edge of riser, I draw 27 inches and shoot a 28 inch arrow, mind you when I was drawing 29 inches a few years ago, a 20 inch arrow actually flew more accurately than the 28 1 /8 inch arrows I was hunting with, rule of thumb one inch beyond the riser to keep the broadhead away from your thumb and fingers of you bow holding hand, a lot of archers get cut on draw and release when the arrows they are using are too short or equal to draw length, have a good one and be safe out there, bob

yea, but when you get your arrows cut that short they become to light and its pretty much like dry fireing you bow

that`s when you get a stiffer shaft for example when I shot aluminum arrows @ a length of 30" I was using 2117s and when I went to 28" long arrows I had to shoot 2365s in order to keep the arrow flight relatively the same. 2117s would whip right for release, I tried to lower my draw weight but it wasn`t enough.

I meant to say 30 inch not 20,,man that would be short eh,,I shot 2117's at 28 1/8 inch with a 28 inch draw, they flew quite well from my Thunderbolt,,

Obviously, it depends on your setup(type of rest) I have a QAD fall away. I have a 29" draw and, I shoot a 29" arrow which, at full draw is about 1 1/2" passed the rest
