Hey all,

I'm a newbie to traditional archery. I was able to get my first bow. It's older, but the limbs are straight and everything seems OK with it. I need help getting arrows and set up. I've read a few books on it and been reading the forums but I'm still having a little trouble figuring everything out.

My bow is a Shakespeare 58" AMO 45# @ 28". My wife helped me measure an arrow and at full draw it measures 28 3/4". That was measured right at the edge of the bow.

I also know bareshaft tuning seems to be the best but I don't own any of the fletching jigs or any other stuff to cut them with. The one local archery shop was less than helpful because it's a traditional bow and they're a compound-only shop. I am going to be getting Rick's video soon.

My primary use for this is bowhunting. I'll eventually be getting a newer and better bow and may switch to carbons later, but for this setup I need to stay with the more affordable aluminum arrows.

So with all that said here are my two questions:

Based on my (very limited) understanding of all this I should order something like a 2016 in aluminum Easton, right?

Can I order them to a certain length (1" longer than draw length) to get started and fine-tune everything eventually when I get my anchor and release, etc., down?

Thanks,

Eric
