    Easton Interactive Arrow Selection App

    I downloaded the Easton interactive arrow selection chart. I noticed something I don't understand. Having selected 'Target' - Draw weight - Arrow length . If you select 'Compound Bow' you can then select the point weight of the arrow. If you select 'Recurve Bow', the arrow point weight is non-selectable! Can someone tell me why this is?

    Thank you

    Likely to be that recurve typically use a button to fine tune the arrows to the bow. Compounds do not have a button so they would tweak pile weight to get the arrow to suit the bow when fine tuning.

    Thanks for the reply. I have never shot a compound. I thought altering the point weight will alter the arrow spine. I also thought that compounds could alter the arrow rest position to tune the arrow for left/right which is what could happen with point weight variations altering the arrow spine.

    The point weight does alter spine, but at very small amounts.
    The arrow rest can be moved left and right but the ideal placement is dead centre and the arrow also hitting gold at all distances, without curving off centre over distance or using much windage.
