Well... I'm totally new at everything related to archery... so please excuse me if I seem waaaaay to ignorant in my questions... and although I have been reading this forum for about a week or so (today I finally decided to register...) I do have a couple of questions that I haven't been able to figure out (yet...)
Ok, here is my story... I do not have any local shops around (so basically I'm gonna have to learn things the hard way...) and from all the techniques and tips I've read here in the past few days I decided to purchase a used Martin Magnum Cougar Bow... which specs are as follows:
* Adjustable from 45-60#
* 29" of Draw Length (I followed the techniques of wingspan measurement... divided by 2.5 etc... and and also this site's technique http://www.merlinarcherycentre.co.uk/firstequipment.htm
and came to the conclusion that my draw lenght apparently is 29" in both cases.. although I am 6'3" tall and and based onsome other info and tables I've read it should be 30" > ?)
*Holding weight is 50%
So we will see how comfortable is once its gets here...
However, I am totally lost in the arrow measurement and specs.
I have no idea where to start...
I was thinking of some arrows I saw at ebay like:
but I am not sure at all... Most arrows I've seen online come 'uncut', so... based on the specs of my bow, how long should my arrows be cut to?
I've seen you all recomend those GT 22 goldtip arrows but... honestly, starting out... I thought I should get "cheap" arrows first to try the bow? Is that a bad idea? Do I need anything else before I can actually shoot an arrow with my newly acquired bow?
Pleaseeeeeee someone give me some light and advice on this matter 'cause I am lost in the arrows whole thing... I am purchasing some "How to" archery DVD's but while those come in, I thought I should ask here first... By the way, I am not hunting or anything like that with the bow... just got it for entertainment and recreational insight matters. (And... please forgive me if I mispelled words out... or if I was not clear enough... English is pretty much my secondary language...)
Thank You Guys! And please forgive me if I sound hopelessly lost...
