    Default Recurves, like Jaguar gpi minimum

    Does anyone know the Martin recommendation for minimum grains per inch for a recurve such as the Jaguar Takedown. Is it 5 gpi ? I know Black Widow is like 8 gpi. I don't want to buy too light of arrows. Thanks.

    Default Jaguar GPI

    I've not seen any specs on GPI for the Jaguar, but would recommend you stay in the 6-8 (or even a little higher) with the recurve. It's going to shoot slower than a compound and I think you'll benefit from the heavier weight in the penetration category.

    You will also recover some speed from a heavier arrow by installing a FF string rather than the Dacron string it comes with. If speed is critical for you, just stick with a compound. At bowhunting (esp. recurve) distances, speed is not a factor; accuracy and penetration are most important in all cases.

    Thank you for writing Martin Archery customer support.

    Do not shoot the bow at any less than 8 gpp.

    Thanks again for writing to Martin Archery, and we hope we\'ve been able to
