    My recurve bow has a draw weight of 70 pounds at 28 inches.

    My draw length is 23 inches (I am deformed) giving me an effective (scaled) draw weight of 55 pounds.

    Will 24 inch 400 spine carbon fiber arrows be too "stiff" for this bow?

    You can get great advice here. I have enjoyed and profited from the forum members. Stay tuned here or check the arrow manufacturers. They have charts to answer your question, call or email them. Good hunting and shooting!

    What kind of point weight do you intend on running? Just looking quickly at spine charts, it looks like you’d need 200+ grains of point weight to break the spine down on that short of an arrow.

    My 24 inch arrows weigh 420 grains with 125 grain heads.
    I didn't know when I got the arrows built that 100 and 125 grain inserts were available. If I had, I would have gotten them.

    They shoot well from my 60 pound (at my draw length) compound bow.

    I don't know how changing the fletching on them to feathers will affect the weight.
