    If they are aluminum, no problem getting the nib out with heat. If they're carbon, it may be a little trickier depending on what glue was used. How much too long are they?

    At your draw length, these might spine better for you if you leave them a little long. I also have a short DL. I can shoot fat shafts for indoor, but a weeker spine usually works better for outdoor.

    It's easy enough to cut aluminums. You can even do it yourself with a tubing cutter.

    It won't matter about the fletching for cutting them. They won't interfer with a shop's arrow saw.
