A friend bought a hoarder's house and I inherited a bunch of wood arrows with the Service Merchandise tape to get them out the door. Shows how old they are. I'll need to put new fletching on some as the old ones are disintegrating. How do I know what draw weight to use? Nothing marked on them or on the old boxes which also disintegrated. Measure the diameter? Your help will be most welcome. Keep 'em in the 10 ring!

  I would group them by spine and gram weight.  Be sure to check for cracks and replace the nocks.  They're most likely brittle and dangerous to you and your bow.

I agree with Deno, the only way to know for sure is put them on a spine tester. And YES YES change the nocks.

Don't have a spine tester. Will see if I can locate someone that has one. Nocks will be no problem. However, your remarks about shooting them in a bow requires buying a recurve or longbow. Now to convince the boss/CEO. Thanks.

If you have an archery shop nearby, give them a call. Ask them if they can help you with spine testing and looking them over to see if they are in good shape, or if they would be better suited to start your next bon fire.

If they are in shootable shape, to find out what bow they will fit, first find out what the spine is for each of them and see if they will fit your bow(s).
