"we would shoot with a given arrow length"  I don't get that part I always shoot arrows that are 30" long regardless.  Wouldn't various sizes hinder accuracy.
each arrow length would have a different stake depending on the individual shooter, as you gained experience, the difference narrowed, and you adjusted to a different  length almost automatically.  Normally, all your arrows are the same length.  But tain't necessarily so!  Hope this makes sense.

With cane and hardwood shoot arrows it's not always easy to find matching shafts but you can make arrows that shoot close enough to each other that the length doesn't matter, more so with hardwood shoots but with some cane too.

Ok gotcha, but 30" is 30".  :)
