I have looked all over this site and all over the web for spine information. I found a chart that tells you which arrows you need at a specific draw length and pull weight. I want to know the spine of Micro Flight arrows 1-12 on a standardized spine tester set at the standard 26" C to C with the standard 2# weight applied. Jim [knothead]

Try this site. www.archeryarchives.com/microflite.html. If memory serves, the site also has spine charts for other brands of fiberglass shafts manufactured during that time.

This link did not open for me at all. I have had trouble with this site in the past with the pictures not showing up. I cant find anything about arrows and the search does not work on the site. Jim

I am just not getting anywhere with the archery archives. I deleted the /microflite.html from your link and finally got the actual web site but nothing on arrows except pearson arrows. Jim

On the AA site on the right of the front page it says glass arrow shaft spine charts.

In 1971 the shafts were offered in sizes 0-12.

I have #11's, yellow shafts, that I bought in the mid or so 60's. They were made by Browning whom I believe had the original patents on them. They sold it to Bear at some point. I know they went up to a #12 at the time I bought them.

I just built a really good and accurate spine tester so i will be able to tell the spine now but only for the 3 or 4 sizes I have. Jim
