    Beginners with very long draw lengths - sourcing arrows

    We have a little conundrum with our latest beginners course that started last week - two of the archers have long draw lengths of over 30" and are not able for very different reasons to go straight to higher powered bows.

    One is a senior archer over 6'4" with age related issues restricting the weight he can draw and the other is a junior with a long draw length but currently lacking muscular development.

    Both archers are on 70" bows & 16# limb sets but are having to shoot uncut (32") XX75 2016's that even at 20yds are flying like wet spaghetti.


    We are happy to buy new arrow sets to accommodate these archers but Easton only does 32" at 2016 or above.


    Has anyone else experienced this situation and what did you manage to do to work around it ?

    I think we have some Easton Neos (gold colour XX75 arrows). They have a 32.5" uncut length, and come only in an unusual 1618 size. They are considerably weaker than 2016's - they have a deflection rating of 0.957" vs 0.531" for a 2016. They should I guess suit very low power bows better than 2013's or 2016's.

    I have 8 hardly used XX75 Platinum 2013s, which with nocks and points come to 32 7/8in from the dip of the nock to the tip of the point.

    They won't be as good a match as the Neos, but they'd likely be a little better than a 2016. If you're interested, let me know.

    We have encountered this problem many times. We now have 4 sets of Kyudo arrows 2015s

    They are shot from a 68" bow with 18#limbs and fly fairly well

    They aren't cheap but we will get a set or two & give them a go
