    Stumbled upon this cool website called Arrow Junkie the other day that sells everything strictly for building arrows. The owner was a super cool guy and said they are a pretty new website and don't have every brand stocked yet but has almost every Arrow brand and alot of good Arrow building...
  3. Arrows & Strings
    So I'm gonna revamp my entire setup this year. I've been looking around and comparing and I think I'm going to go with either Victory V-Force or Black Eagle Carnivore 250 spines. Either way use Ethics 100gr outserts and then either use a 200gr GrizzlStik Samurai or a 150gr Stinger. Thoughts on...

    So, here’s my top 5 arrows that I’m interested in(am open to others that are similar in spec). I can really only compare them on paper because I don’t have the equipment or knowledge to build and tune 5 different arrows. They are all pretty similar, and I’m sure you all think I should just shoot...

    I'm looking to add some weight to my arrow setup but could use some second opinions. I have taken deer and elk with this setup but would like to get up in the 420ish range for those dreaded shoulder mishaps. I'm currently shooting a 360 grain arrow.... 27" MAXIMA RED 250 (8.1gpi), 100 grain...
  8. Crossbow Forum - General Crossbow Discussion
    I have built my own arrows for years for my compound bow and I found a great deal on raw carbon arrow shafts in multiple sizes, but not sure if any were specifically for compound or crossbow. I have a Saw, Blitzenburger fletching jig and was considering purchasing a few dozen so I could make my...
  9. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Who has used the Ethics Archery Spinning Inserts for hunting? Do they actually work; wouldn't they be more susceptible to bending for breaking since there is a moving part? Just curious on people's thoughts since i know Ethics makes great products, but these just seem weird. Thanks for any input.

    Hey AT, I am still a somewhat newbie learning what I can, I have always shot the standard diameter arrows and am looking to try building a set of micro diameter for western hunting, mostly deer, elk on the years I draw a tag. I was curious what everyone's opinion on how heavy to make my setup...
  11. General Archery Discussion
    Hey everybody! I just bought my first bow about a month ago and have since become engulfed in this sport/lifestyle. One thing that has started to intrigue me is building my own arrows. It seems like the bitzenburger jigs are a strong favorite across the board but I was wondering if anyone had...
  12. General Archery Discussion
    I’m going crazy with this arrow build as the calculated FOC, and measured FOC are not within tolerance close to each other. Okay, I’ve been using the GoldTip FOC Calculator online. The arrows I have are uncut Beman ICS Hunter Classic 340 (31.625”x9.3GPI=294.1125gn) with Easton Super Nocks...

    Ok, something I never had to think about with aluminum arrows, but now that I am shooting carbons, there are issues. So, no matter what grade of carbon arrows that I buy, some or most wobble when I spin them (Pine Ridge Arrow Inspector). This wasn't an issue with aluminum, they were always...

    Hay guys, Need some advice on vanes. I am using Bohning ice vanes with my carbon 1 shafts (shooting compound). I am happy with the performance but want to try something different. I was thinking either Bohning Impulse Deux or Bohning X Vanes Shield Cut 2.25"s. I am using the ice vanes with a...

  17. Traditional Archery
    Good Morning All, So my last post we figured out how to make the field tips fit flush with the shaft, I just have go file the field point, BUT then realized it is actually the beman inserts that hang over the shaft a little bit causing the arrow to catch when pulling out of a target causing...

    I am currently shooting BE Rampage 350's with the BE stainless steel half outs. Is there a better half out insert I could try with the new dozen I am going to buy? such as the BE platinum half outs? they are a 2 grains heavier but supposed to be 2x the hardness, but 2x the price. My current...

    I've been out of the market for a while and haven't purchased shafts for years. What are some good shops for purchasing shafts. I'm leaning towards blackeagle rampage .001 300 spine.
