      I have been shooting for a number of years, but I have never been a consistent archer (my arrows are always all over the place). I was always under the impression that the spine of your arrow should be within 2 to 3 pounds of you bow weight. I looked at the chart, but I need someone who knows how to read it to explain to me how to determine what spine weight arrow I should be using.

      I too had a problem with arrow spine when I first started shooting.  I had 35 lb bow, so figured I should be using 35 lb arrows.  I actually bought 40-45 and they worked okay, but I too had to aim at the outside edge of the black ring, to achieve a center hit.  My next set of arrows, turned out to be poorly spined, ranging from 33 lb up to 50 lb, so they were all over the target.  I decided to change arrow suppliers and in doing so, discovered the following chart, which shows that I should be using arrows spined at around 50 lbs, so I ordered 50-55s.  My aim point is now dead center.  


      If the link does not work, just go to Allwoodarrows.com, and click the spine chart link at bottom of the header banner.
