I really like the looks of having longer arrow wraps vs the shorter ones. Other than adding a little more weight to the fletching end of the arrow, does anyone know if the longer wraps affect the spine of the arrow itself and affect arrow flight? Thanks, TODDY

I wish that I was a good enough shot that it would matter.

From: Coondog
It will change FOC slightly, but a few grains will not affect your arrow spine.

From: fdp
Any weight that you add to the rear of a shaft causes a stiffer dynamic spine reaction. Will you be able to tell the difference.....only you can answer that.

From: Dale06
Wraps don’t weigh much. Adding another 2” or so to a 4-5” wrap technically may alter some things, but I doubt it will be noticeable. I sure would not notice it.

Arrow wraps weigh 2 gr per inch or less. I’d put on the length you prefer and worry about more important things.

With a 1” longer wrap I am 1/4” left at 100 yards.

I figured as much, thanks for the feedback! TODDY

LMAO!!! 'Trevor' my left foot, you must be Brady E. ;-)

I wish I was good enough to tell.

That's funny, wtF! lol

I like long wraps, they look good. The last few years I've used shorter ones, because I had some blue ones from years ago I wanted to use up. That all said, my skill as an archer surely is not enough to ID a difference. As others have noted, it "could", but you probably need to be really skilled to "see" it.
