Just wondering how much an arrow should bend when released, is this the norm, or what is average? Did a couple slow-Mo videos, then stopped video just after release, then did screen shot of what I was seeing. Look at arrow and tell me is this is weak, stiff, or about right.

Sorry; it’s not a video, I took a screenshot during the slo-mo video to capture the arrow in flight. Just curious if the arrow in the pictures should flex that much.
1st picture arrow to right near top of telephone pole.
2nd arrow right at top of pole, two different shots.

I've always heard even a stiff arrow has some serious flex. Good thinking on the slow-mo video. I'm definitely going to try it. That flex doesnt seem too extreme. Especially if it's tuning properly.

The weaker the spine the more they will bend a stiff arrow will bend less you have to tune your arrows so that they hit where you're aiming at
