Question arrow weight

I shot a 3D tourny least weekend and lost 5 arrows. I was told that my arrows were to heavy for my bow. I have to buy new arrow. My old ones were 2213 and I shoot a 30 pound recurve. What should I buy?

Need a bit more information, what length is your arrow?

Assuming you shoot a 28" arrow, you need something like 1913 or 1914. If you have a 29" arrow it would be 2012 or 2013.

To shoot 2213 you need to be pulling about 55lbs at 28" to be spined correctly. So yes, your arrow is too heavy.

Ok, still assuming your arrow is about 30" long...

2112,2013,2014,1916 are the arrow sizes to look at.
