Hi men! After 40yrs of cedar arrows, I want to try some carbon. I'm looking at CE150 heritage. Setting up for a Java man Falcon longbow 46# @28". Hoping to get some insight on others set ups and arrow length and point weight to get me pointed in the right direction. Thank ya!

Should work just start long and figure it out

An excellent choice.

150's are what you want, Carbon Express Heritage shafts react more and quicker to a change in length than a change in point weight, so start long and trim in small increments during tuning.

I never cut my carbon arrows, I ajust point weight. Never broke or bent one either.

They don't bend

Chad - I find my Javaman bows (Falcon & Falcon XL) like a little stiffer arrow. Not sure if you also found that to be true with wood?

I find the 150's work on most of my bow, just adjust tip weight if needed.

Thanks men. Mark, yes they like stiffer cedar too. Are you using CE150's for your set up?

From: Fall Gray
Date: 11-Jan-18




Actually no Chad. As of right now, I am playing with some 400's and 500's both and adjusting tip weight and length. I have shot the CX 250's (400) before with success, but am now trying some GT and Easton FMJ. I have a 30" draw.

I had to go with the 75s .670 spine out of my 42#Toelke Whip. If yours is cut proud of center it might want a lighter spine than the 150s.

I think the 90's would work better.

CE Heritage are excellent shafts. I believe you can order them individually from Lancaster. You could try a 90 and 150 to see what your bow like the best.

I shoot both 150's and 90's. depends on the bow I'm using. I find I had to go to a 145gr tip to get the best flight.

Chad, I am also a big fan of CX Heritage arrows. I shot 125 grains from 30 inch CX 150 arrows and got ok flight but never exactly what I wanted. I went to the CX 250 arrows and 145 gr field points and 150 gr. Stinger 150 2 blade broadheads. Both setups fly identically from my 46 lb and 45 lb recurves. Arrows are 30 inches from the throat of the nock to the cut. I am very satisfied with the flight and animal penetration. How that would translate into longbow talk.....I don't know. I should be shooting my first longbow some time next week and will try to shoot same arrows.

I get my Heritage shafts from Bowhunters Superstore, best price that I have found per dozen.

I like the old white letter graphics.I use the 150 in my 45# frankenbow.I tried the newer ugly black graphics shafts,and they didn't fly the same.just something about them.I think there a different shaft.jmho.

I refuse to patronize a company that doesn't have the deflection of the arrow easily available LIKE THEY'RE MODEL NUNBER.

Wouldn't it have been easier for them to use 600 instead of 150 for a spine of .600?
