I have a set of once fired custom 20" Spynal Tapps I purchased for a crossbow that I sold. They were pretty expensive and I dont want to have to discard them. I bought a new Excal that uses 16.5" arrows. Is there any reason other than maintaining the manufacturers minimum recommended weight that I shouldn't shorten them?

Just because your new Excal shoots 16.5 inch arrows......doesnt mean you have to. But go ahead and cut them....they will work fine. I would leave them at 18 inches myself....

I shortened some 20” BEE’s to 16.5 for my new 340 mag. No problems at all. You can actually save the inserts and reuse them. Just clean them well before you install them.

doesn't the spinal tapps have the long inserts up front? If so you would need to cut them at the nock end and reflect.

If you hit the 3 vertical buttons at the top right side of your post you can correct (edit) it there.
