    Arrow spine for Reiver

    I just ordered Reiver XP 30 CX, 59# 64". I was wondering what the correct spine would be for me ....?

    I draw 29", So my draw weight should be around 60#. I use mohair-rest and thin leather pad in the window cut.

    hi ratman, i think border recommend arrow spine to be 10-15 higher than draw weight, so that would maybe be 70-75 for you, they also have a booklet thats talks about the importance of arrow weight, so you might be able to have a lesser spine if the total arrow weight is ok for your bow, hope one of the sids can give you a better answer.

    Oh that explains it. I had been shooting some arrows I thought were 30" - 50 to 55 # spine out of my 42# Harrier. Harrier has been fly them very well. Dug out the spine tester after reading the bookelt and they were around 65# spine.

    Nice booklet. My Harrier has been shooting up at storm at BH 6.5" thought it might be low...nope right in the ball park.

    Let us know how your Reiver works out, Nice looking bow. My Harrier is the Royale. it shoots a pretty wide range of spines. Good thing it is clear I don't have a clue what some of my arrows are spined.

    Thanks guys! That booklet was very informative. So, I guess I just have to buy a couple of different arrow sets of different spine and test them.
