I just took the plunge into traditional archery by purchasing a new 2009 model Martin "Stick" longbow. This is my first longbow, and I am not sure what weight and length of arrow I should try with this bow.
It is a 45# bow and my draw length is 30". I plan to use the bow only for recreational target shooting with field tips.
Will carbon arrows work fine for these purposes? How many grains and what arrow length should I start out with? Any safty considerations I should be aware of?
Many thanks for your help!
