I have a Fedora Longbow 58" 55# @ 28" . I'm having a hard time getting it shoot good. I group well with it but it shoots low.I've tried canting it at different angles and get the same results. I've been using Gold Tip 55-75's. I'd like to stick with carbons if I can . They fly great out of my recurve. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Not knowing all your parameters but taking a guess at them, a GT 3555 would be more like it. Google Stu Miller's Dynamic Spine Calculator, download it and it'll tell you what you need. And yes, you'll certainly be able to stay with carbons.

Shooting thru paper will tell you a lot about what that arrow is doing leaving the bow.. Heavier heads sound likely necessary in your case, but getting the proper arrow spine to start with is best. FWIW, my bows always seem to shoot the straightest arrows when I have arrows one series lighter than the arrow manufacturer's charts show for my draw length and draw weight and head weights. All the manufacturer's have online charts to check.
