$100 with a new pack of 2 blade rage 40ke's.

The arrows alone were $140 and they've never even been out of the box

Bow Newb,

You better get some REAL professional help.

I can tell you that, if you are 5'10", your draw length is NOT 25" unless you have extremely SHORT arms. Now, once you establish your actual draw length you have to determine your arrow lengths. There are a few things that enter into that equation. What release are you using and what broadhead. The release and release loop shorten the arrow length and a broadhead that sweeps backward (like the Ram Cat) makes it mandatory that the arrow is longer to keep you from getting cut. Arrows should be 2" past the front of the riser anyway. Make damn sure your arrows aren't too short. This is extremely dangerous. You could end up with an arrow in your hand or in a friend's neck.

Once you have worked out your ARROW LENGHT, you have to determine the broadhead weight before you can arrive at the SPINE. There are no shortcuts. Do this right if you want to get an effective result and achieve any kind of accuracy. In the old days of 'finger' shooting, this was much simpler but now it is more critical.

Get someone who really knows and someone who has time to work with you. I don't know how much time you have but if you will PM me, I will give you the name of a guy who can set you on the right path.

When you said SHORT arms this is all I could think of
