    Arrow Lenth + Spine

    I currently shoot 29.5" arrows on 34 pound limbs. Using Eastons arrow guide i sit in Group T6. This is my Correct Arrow length.
    Using ACC arrows I shoot 3L-18 spine shafts with pile weight of 82 grains.

    If i wanted to use my clicker plate my arrows would need to be 1" longer thus moving me in to Group T7.

    Question: Do i continue to shoot ACC 3L-18 spine and buy my arrows at 30.5" or do i do as the guide suggests and buy 3-18 / 3-28 from group T7.

    I know about arrow tuning with pile weights but as i need to buy longer arrows my question remains.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is there a reason why your clicker can't be used on the arrows you are already using?

    If i use a clicker with my current arrows the clicker falls on the riser itself.
    Amazingly it falls exactly where the riser ends and the clicker plate begins and has started to damage the riser. Its ever so slight but over time i fear it will cause a grove to form.

    Yes Anal i know but i would rather not damage the riser if i can prevent it.

    Move the clicker so that it falls on the plate (say about 3mm) and shorten your draw length by 3mm.
    just point,pull & click the mouse button

    I thought it might be the riser paint damage issue. How about a small piece of tape on the riser where the clicker lands, or even a piece round the end of the clicker?
    The Bjorn clicker had a sleeve over the end to prevent scratches.

    Do you use a Beiter clicker? If so it should have a plastic "sleeve" over the end to prevent damage to the paint. if you have lost it, alt services sell the sleeves separately.

    If you want to buy an inch longer arrows, you will indeed need to move up a spine as you said, but that's an expensive way of curing a very small issue?.


    Some top coaches recommend setting the arrow length so that the clicker is vertical, so would definitely be on the riser then. The clicker extension plate is only really there to account for people that shoot longer arrows than necessary for whatever reason
