Re: Getting started in Archery
- My advice on this would be the exact opposite. I would sooner a
beginner had arrows that were longer than his drawlength than right
My reasoning is that a beginner is more likely to overdraw anyways.
Overdrawing with long arrow means you miss your mark. Overdrawing
with an arrow that is exactly the right length is a potential injury
to the archer and the archers around him.

- Thanks for letting me know. The seller assures me there are no
cracks and I will have someone else check it over too. I belong to
and local archery club so someone there should be able to notice.
And I will check it over myself too.
