Default Tuning help

Finally it's warm enough to get out and play with my new recurve. I'm shooting 50lbs with 500 spine arrows, full length. 125 grain tips. Arrows are fletched. They're all hitting to the left by quite a bit. Is it possible a full length 500 with a 125 tip is too stiff? I'll try again tomorrow before trying to make adjustments, but they are significantly (6" at 15 yards) to the left. They are grouping.

Could adjusting brace height bring them back? I think I need to focus on my anchor and release too, as I was just going out to fling a few. I don't know. My first shot of the day, like always, was perfect.

I think I could have also been dropping my bow arm, and I did a heavy back workout yesterday so I'm tired. I think I'll just ignore today's results completely.

Do you have any heavier field points? Screw in some 150 gr field points and see what happens. And 150 gr broadheads are easy to come by in the trad world
