Arrow Selection Charts

Arrow length is measured from the throat of the nock to the end of the insert. If you are shooting a longer broadhead than field point, you may want to choose a slightly stiffer shaft.

Step 1: Find your draw and point weight in the chart.

Step 2:

Step 3:
Find the correct group number in the shaft selection chart.

Step 4:
Find your appropriate spine selection for your bow and use the detail arrow specifications chart on the next page to see which shafts are available in your spine. Arrow length is measured from the throat of the nock to the end of the insert. If you are shooting a longer broadhead than field point, you may want to choose a slightly stiffer shaft.


Compound Bows - With Finger Release
When shooting finger release, start by selecting an arrow 2 boxes to the weaker side (to the left). Start with the arrow 1” longer than you selected and cut it down 1/4” at a time until you have a perfectly tuned shaft using the bare shaft tuning method outlined in the back of the Gold Tip product catalog and the Arrow University section of the Gold Tip website (goldtip.com).

Traditional Recommendations
1. If you are shooting a recurve/longbow, first establish the draw weight of the bow at the length you draw it to. This is best accomplished by bringing the bow to full draw and having a friend mark the arrow where it intersects the outside of the riser.

2. For either longbow or recurve, start with the arrow at least 1” longer than your desired finished arrow and cut the shaft down 1/4” at a time until you establish a perfect tune using the bare shaft tuning guide outlined in the back of the Gold Tip product catalog or in the Arrow University section of the Gold Tip website (www.goldtip.com). You can use the Gold Tip weight system to fine tune the spine reaction and increase the mass weight of the arrow.
