Does anyone shoot a pma 50#@28” d97 string wondering were I should start with wood shafts. Just got a new bow and need to order some shafts. Thanks.

I don't really shoot wood, except occasionally with my selfbow. The person who helps you will need to know what weight you are actually  shooting at your draw length.

I have a 51 # @ 28 pma that I shoot both ash and doug fir shafts spined 55 -60 out of it and get great arrow flight.
I think you could go up to 60 - 65 and get the same results .

with 125 grain points would probably tune with 2215 or 2117* aluminums (as per their chart in the back of their hand book) so would thing about 70-75# spine woods with 125 points

I think you will find the 75-80 will fly the best. Stiff arrows work well with their bows.

In an old video I have Ken Beck suggests woods at least 10-15# heavier in spine. BUT this was before FF. I used 100# spine shafts from my 80# limbs with B-50 strin. I cut my shafts to 29”. I believe those heavy shafts recommendations are where you should start.

  The whole suggestion of wood arrows being 10-15lbs. heavier is based entirely on the fact that BW's are cut well past center. The way you actually have the bow set up to shoot is the determining factor there.

  Any bow will shoot a wide range of spines, and the further it is past center, the wider the range if you use the sight window to tune.

  For your particular set up, assuming that you still have the bow set up past center, I would start with 65-69lb. spined arrows.
