I traded for a bow awhile back it is made by a Canadian Bowyer. It's a Millinaim 46# @ 26" (my draw length) 56" Takedown.

I tuned this bow with 3555 @ 29 1/2 with 145 up front. Not a perfect bareshaft but very close. Just for grins I tried a 5575 full length with 5" fletch with 100 u/f. Flew like darts. Shot my best 3D score all year with them. Next I tried 28" 4" fletch 5575 and found it will shoot 145 pretty well, but really likes 175. I did not bareshaft either and I see no reason to do it with the way they are flying. It will even shoot 1535 with 145 u/f pretty good too.

When you say 'pretty good' that covers a large spectrum from good to not so good. Arrow flight should be as near perfect as you can attain. Some bows will have a wide variety of spines they will shoot due to their configuration, and the setups used. It's not all that unusual, you are just finding it out. That said, what we want is perfect arrow flight....not pretty good.

by pretty good arrow groups with fletch shafts, but still show a tad weak. I was told adding the feathers would stiffen it a bit. Is that wrong. When it comes to "pretty good" as far as accuracy is concerned means they go close to what I'm trying to hit, but a lot of that is me. They all fly to the same area.

Hey Frank. When I question pretty good I'm referring to the flight itself, not where they are hitting. Even 'iffy' arrows can group together. Some bows are very forgiving of spine though, I have a Carroll's takedown that is like that.
