    Cutting arrows to stiffen them

    Does anyone have any experience with cutting arrows to stiffen them?

    Specifically how much shorter an arrow needs to be to move a bare shaft towards the fletched group.

    Does a 0.5" trim move the bare shaft 10cm, 20cm, etc at what distance?
    Would a 1" trim double that?

    Thanks

    What you're asking is basically impossible to answer, as there are far too many parameters that vary depending on the archer and the equipment.

    If you're asking about a specific set up, then you're better off sharing all the parameters (draw weight, draw length, arrow model and spine, etc.) and asking whether anyone has experience with a similar set up.

    I was wondering if it was fairly predictable as the Easton arrow groups are 4lbs and 1" but I guess that doesn't translate to even a rough bare shaft distance.

    720 spine ACEs, 28.75" long, 38lbs OTF Uukha VX+ limbs. Bare shafts land about 30cm weak at 30m.

    That's what? 2 spine groups out of match...? I'm not sure there's much can be done about that.

    half inch off the back maybe? That's a risky move though
