What kind of bow? Recurve or Compound? Draw weight? — Sven

Response:

If you are shooting a compound bow I would recommend using the new "Redline"  all carbon arrows made by Easton.  I recently switched to these arrows from ACC’s and gained 23 fps.  Also they seem to group better at the further distances.  Easton’s website is  www.eastonarchery.com Kevin T 99 Jennings Promaster

Odd that you would come to Usenet for advice if you’re lucky enough to have a trusted coach.  Do you really think the people who post here can give you better advice than an accomplished coach who knows your shooting style and your equipment ?

<Devils Advocate mode on> Wouldn’t you be much better off getting the advice of the British #1 archers dad? *VBEG* </Devils Advocate mode off> I take it that James Bingham’s father is a qualified coach? If so, follow his advice. Presumably he has no hidden agenda……like stopping you ousting his son as #2! Happy 9’s Kevin

Do you think a single person, even when he/she is a coach, knows EVERYTHING about our sport? Sometimes I found that some coach was   routine-blinded. — Sven

Response:

George, I know a few coaches, whom I trust… but they know a lot less than me about equipment. I’m sure that’s probably not the case here, but it’s worth mentioning. If I was going to spend over 100UKP on arrows (or even less!), I’d want as much information as I could get from as many sources as possible to allow me to make an informed judgement… David, Tell us more about your kit, your level of experience and your budget! — Murray

Response:

I am a junior recurve shooter, currently ranked #2 in Ireland, I shoot Easton Redlines. I am shooting approx ends of 54+ with them at 40 metres, and 50+ at 60 metres. If indoor, shoot X7 arrows. Nice big thick ones. Bye Ewan

Response:

Your question is too limited. Are you a target or a field archer? Do you shoot recurve or compound? If you are a target archer are you scoring 1000, 1100, 1200 on a FITA Round? Are you looking for economy, middle of the road, or money no object? Do you want your set of arrows to last quite a long time? – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text – >Can  any one please tell me which carbon arrows I should be buying my coach >says A/C/Cs and he should know because he is the dad of James Bingham >British No. 2 but any extra advice would be greatly appreciated.

Response:

Carbon arrows fron Easton from best to low end:  X-10, ACE, ACC, redlines.  I recommend that if you are a novice go with ACC’s or Redlines.  Note: redlines are pure carbon, and ACC’s are aluminun carbon which the later will stay bent, while redlines memory to stay straight unless the limit is reached then it is broken/splintered.  I personally shoot ACE’s and find that it is faster out of the chronograph than ACCsc.  I also shoot CT-Royals. But if you are at the point that you rarely break an arrow, I suggest that you go with ACE’s they are GREAT. (IMHO) Ronny Yurong Sr.

When do you use ACE and when CT-Royals? — Sven

You’re lucky to have him as a coach.  I’ve met James a couple of times, and he’s a good bloke as well as being a great shot. ACC’s are good arrows.  They’re tried and tested, and have the added advantage of being easy to find in the grass with a metal detector. However, I  switched from ACC’s to Carbontech arrows because they are cheaper.  They are also very robust for carbon shafts.  I’ve only ever had one shaft break because it hit the side of the boss, and that’s after 1 entire outdoor season of solid shooting.  At other times I’ve bounced them off the side of bosses, put them into the legs of target stands, and they’ve been absolutely fine. So, you can go for either and you’ll probably be happy. Good shooting, John Kearney

I recently purchased some Beaman ICS Extreme. They are VERY strong. Today I was practicing at only 10 yds and shot into the back of an arrow. Split the G nock straight down the middle, it really should have split the shaft but no damage at all! Magwich

Well put George! ><Devils Advocate mode on> >Wouldn’t you be much better off getting the advice of the British #1 archers dad?

Ian Crowther’s dad is not a coach and besides he has been ill for some time! – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text ->*VBEG* ></Devils Advocate mode off> >I take it that James Bingham’s father is a qualified coach?

Are you referring to James or his dad? As far as I know Bingham junior does not coach…Not sure about his father either! Agree about his ability though and but I think he will become even better too! – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text ->ACC’s are good arrows.  They’re tried and tested, and have the added >advantage of being easy to find in the grass with a metal detector. >However, I  switched from ACC’s to Carbontech arrows because they are >cheaper.  They are also very robust for carbon shafts.  I’ve only ever >had one shaft break because it hit the side of the boss, and that’s >after 1 entire outdoor season of solid shooting.  At other times I’ve >bounced them off the side of bosses, put them into the legs of target >stands, and they’ve been absolutely fine. >So, you can go for either and you’ll probably be happy. >Good shooting, >John Kearney

Bow Dude, First of all, Sorry for the late post, And your new, Let me tell  you a little fact about arrows. As you learn from your coach you will improve following his instruction. Listen with respect and then make your own choices as to where you want to go with your bow experiance. As you get better, you will have to make personnal choices about your equipment. What really feels right and melts in your hand will not be the same for others. It really depends on your style. Since you have not set a style yet, you will have fun getting there. Some days things will seem perfect and others you’ll wonder what the h is going on. Of course there is always the technical breakthroughs that come along that you’ll want to play with. practice and play all you can! cw >Can  any one please tell me which carbon arrows I should be buying my coach >says A/C/Cs and he should know because he is the dad of James Bingham >British No. 2 but any extra advice would be greatly appreciated. > What kind of bow?
