Martin "Stick"... Been pulling heavy bows for 40 years, tooo heavy. Shoulder gave out... Thought I would never shoot again but, bought a used Martin Stick Longbow 45@28 from a church buddy so my daughter could hunt with it and she ran oft and got married! I kept the bow, and have been shooting my old awesome lam birch arrows (way over-spine) out of it, but looking at some "Traditional Only" carbons from Three Rivers with weight tubes. Anyone have any advise on these?
Thanks,
Jim in SC [Smile]

I'm sure you could load the front of some 500s and forget the weight tubes.

Try some 600 spine carbons. I think if you start full length and play w tip weight you will find an arrow that shoots well.

The Traditional Only shafts are made for 3 Rivers to market as their house brand. They are very good shafts. I have been using them for years.

What’s your draw length? I shoot 400s with 145gr field tips in my recurve, 45 lbs @ 30”. 500s are underspined with points down to 100gr for me.

I am shooting the Trad Only arrows from 3R and really like them. I am shooting a Bodnik slick stick 50# @28. I have it tuned great with the 500s cut at 29 1/4 with 100gr brass inserts and 145-150gr Heads.Besides shooting good I think they look pretty nice too.

My draw is 28", so I am holding 45#. The arrow length is 29.5#. I am looking at the 500 spine on the "Traditional Only" arrows?? Please Advise...

.500s should work fine. Scratch the weight tubes. You should be able to load the front end of those arrows with at least 200 grains, for example, a 125 grain point, perhaps a 50 grain adaptor and 20 grain insert. That should get you in the 500 grain range for overall arrow weight. Good luck.

Why would it be more advantageous to go with a heavy insert or broad head in the front than to use the weight tubes?
Thanks,
Jim H.
