This may be a stupid question to most of you, but here it goes... How do you know what size to cut your arrows to? Should I go to a bow shop and be measured or does it have something to do with the draw length?

Please explain & help.

Thanks very much...

With the correct draw length bow , 1-1.5" past the arrow rest , assuming your bow has a riser cut past center allowing the broadheads to clear the front of the riser .

now days it is usually about half an inch shorter than your draw length...easiest way go to a pro shot. Second options, draw and get a buddy to put white out at the edge of your shelf on an old arrow then measure.

yep, get measured!...you dont need an arrow 32 inches long if you draq 28......They should be tailored to your draw length and pull of the bow for spine stiffness etc........
