Default I need some cheese with my whine

I am guessing that people shoot large shafts to help with getting better scores. Being a wimp and not being able to pull mega pounds so that I can shoot an arrow with a spine of .150", it doesn't seem like I can use the large shaft arrows. Has anyone considered a rule change to allow the use of a scoring disc which would be put around a smaller arrow so that the small arrow could get the same score as a larger arrow? Also is there a maximum legal OD for an arrow?

Max is 2712 27/64"

BTW if you shoot a release stiff don't matter so much at 50 and under..

Thanks. So there is something that I could shoot. I have been looking at the arrow charts and I was not able to tell what was going on.

GT Pro 22's or Easton Fatboys would probably work for you..

But I like to put mine on the edge so the good shooters wont tear up my arrows.

I like that one!

Wrong attitude, but closer to reality for me.

Good shooters dont need small shafts. I got some 22 series GT coming. I need to shoot less poundages as well.

Big Sissy I am

If you want a weaker spined shaft the Victory X-Ringers come in a .350 spine. I shoot the .250s and they're great arrows and that diameter does pick up a few points for me.
