Default Full length arrows

Iíve been able to tune off the shelf with full length arrows and point weight, is there any reason to cut my arrows down? My DL is 28 1/2Ē and I shoot instinctive.

Instinctive or not and whether it's your conscious or subconscious doing the aiming?...a longer pointer is always more accurate...just like the longer sight radius of long barreled rifles and pistols over short barrel rifles and pistols.

I practice and regularly use a number of different aiming systems and when I shoot what I would call instinctively?...my subconscious visualizes what I can only describe as this..."Line In The Air"...where the longer the arrow?...the easier that line is to visualize and line up with and the reason why is because "my subconscious gaps"...(that I'm not wasting any conscious effort managing so I can spend that on the physical execution of my shot)...just became smaller due to the longer full length arrow shafts.

Welcome to Gapstinctive with long arrows.

It's not broke so don't try to fix it.
Full length arrows don't need a change your point-on since you don't gap or string walk.
Full length arrows are much easier to sell.

The only reason I'd cut them is if I wanted heavier point weight.

Yes, if you want to shoot a heavier arrow. I wouldn't, but the question was 'any reason' so the correct answer is yes.

You are missing something there : correct answer FOR ME

PS Where is he saying he wants to shoot a heavier arrow? He said he was able to tune the arrow full length.

It becomes a matter of personal choice. When I get a new set of arrows cutting them to length is the first thing I do with them. I don't tune with length. By doing it this way my sight "picture" remains consistent regardless of arrows.

There is no one and only way to do archery. The one rule that is imperative is that you be consistent.

I thought of that but even though I donít aim with the point if I did the arrows all being full length would be the same.
I now have three recurves and one long bow and was happy to see that I was able to tune my arrows by point and insert weights.

Unless you are struggling to get a long enough point-on there is no benefit to cutting. Light arrows can be built full length.
