Draw/arrow weight ?
I can't remember what the weight of my arrows are, but they are what I was shooting when I was pulling 52#. I had my bow turned down to 45#. I have been reading about pull weight and arrow weight needing to work together. Does this make a big difference in the way my arrows fly? Speed? Spine? etc... Keep in mind, I am just shooting for fun right now, not competing. Just getting started again, but trying to learn as much as possible.

I was out of the sport for over 15 years and there is a lot to learn now compared to what it used to be. It's been fun catching up again over the past 2-1/2 or so years. So much fun in fact it's become an addiction...
You'll also find some good people and good information on this site. It has definitely helped me out.
Good luck !
Carbon arrows ? What are those, writing instruments that fly ?

Ok, here is what I can tell you.
DL=26" ?I am questioning this after measuring my arrows and seeing how far the arrow is out past my bow at full draw.
Beman ICS 500-carbon
Arrow Length from nock point to end of shaft 26 1/8"
I can't remember the tip weight, but I want to say 100g. I was shooting Muzzy 100's for hunting.
And here is a pic:
