Archery is a sport that will take a newbie some time to fully get down. The best tip I can offer any archer out there is to pick the right arrow for their setup. It doesn’t matter if you are using the newest, fastest compound manufactured or a 30 year old recurve, the arrow must be correct based on your bow weight, arrow length and tip weight.
Arrow selection charts are available at your local sporting goods store or online. Learn to use them. In the end, it is the accuracy that brings down the game, not arrow speed! The right arrow for you bow will make this possible.
