I have 11 unfinished 34" Easton 2317 shafts, the 12th is cut for bareshafting I assume.

My bows are 50#, 51#, & 58# at 28". Would I be wasting time trying to tune these to my bows with the expectation of decent flight? Not necessarily for hunting deer, but just for squirrels and shooting and stumping. Im sure I would need to leave them long, add tons of weight, or a combination of the two.

2317's are spined at 297. That's a very stiff spine, probably compatible with heavyweight bows. Is your bows cut to center? Even if they are I'd guess you'll have to weight the front VERY heavy to get decent flight.

That’s the arrow I used to use from my 80# Black Widow. I had a 31 inch draw in those days. Now if the risers are cut well past center those could work for short shots

My Sage is closest to center, the others arent. Not only are the 2317s a heavy spine, theyre also heavy; 13.3 gpi I think. I just hate having them sitting there doing nothing.

You’d have to add about 250 or so upfront and it’s gonna drop likes rock past 15 yards.

Don’t feel bad about those arrows sitting there unused. I have dozens left from both myself and our son’s heavy bow weight days. One day they will all be his worry.

Maybe I'm a little different than most, but I try for a very heavy arrow. Since I don't plan on shooting over 30 yards anyway, I get fairly level flight. I shoot about 65 lbs with my whip and shoot a 34" 2419 with 250 up front. I get perfect flight. I shoot the same arrow with my 75 lb recurve. I have also used them with my 45 lb sage and get good flight, just slow!

I used to shoot 2317 with 145 gr. Bear Razorhead's out of my 80# wheelbow around 20 years back.I stripped them and made flu flu's out of them when I went traditional.They worked good as flu flu's out of my 68# longbow.

I was given some 2317. One of my canoe tripping tents with fiberglass poles, it had some crushed poles from years of canoe trip use. I found the 2317 were the exact width. So I redid the poles with 2317s and lightened and stiffened the tent considerably.

Sounds like fodder for flu flu stumpers!

Wanted: Crow willing to fly into my arrow. Blind, deaf and dumb preferred. Mute a bonus. One wing would be good. No legs. With vertigo...

Good shafts. Some people still use them. Put them up for sale and buy your proper spine. I shoot 2219 and 2317 in bows from 80-110, and sometimes they are difficult to come by.
