All arrows should be shootable. Whether they are correct spine or not will be the case. You can suggest your spine to your maker.

Not exactly sure how this arrow trade works since it's my first time. Do I trade one or more of my arrows. If so, where do I mail it to? Field tip or flint that I chipped?

You only have to send one arrow but you can send as many as you want it can be a field point or a chipped point

...but it should be one you made yourself and not just one out of your quiver.

I've gotten a hill cane shaft almost straight enough to continue the build. I also have another "special" arrow I'm working on which may or may not work.  ;)

Put 2 nails in the side of your work bench 26" apart. Then get a 2# weight you can hang in the middle of the shaft and match the deflection against a favorable shaft. This will get you started until you can come up with a more accurate spine tested.
I know where you can get plans to make a spine tester and get a weight/deflection table.
