and ask them to do it. They usually have an arrow which has been labelled
with inches. When you draw back in a typical fashion for you, they can
just read the number of inches off the test arrow.

of arrows. Your muscles will tire if you shoot 72 arrows at once (mine
would drop off). I try not to go over a dozen arrows per end. An awful lot
of competitions only have you shoot 6 or even 3 arrows per end. If you
shoot considerably more than than you will not be practicing the same way
you will be shooting for scores. Not to mention that many arrows in the
target just increases your chances to get a "Robin Hood" which breaks
arrows rapidly (said by someone who blew away one of my favorite self
nocked arrows last night, and I was only shooting 6 at a time).
Another thing is the high school arrows may well be beaten up. I am not
trying to get you to spend lots of money, but really poorly matched arrows
just don't shoot well, and frustrate the shooter. There is no way to get
any kind to reproducability with lousy arrows.
