    I just traded an old bracer and got some left wing feathers, so now I might as well start gathering info on building arrows and fletching. Do I need to spine or weigh my shafts? The runout faces up and points at the target when nocked on the string, right? Are fancy woods better then cedar, I...

    So I’m planning to order and build some DaySix arrows. I’m only hunting whitetail and want to see what setup sounds better to you guys. I shoot a 70lb bow with a 27”DL and I plan to shoot 100 grain broad heads with 6” wrap, four fletch and a lighted nock. First set up would be 350 spine arrows...

    So I’m having a hell of a time with my next arrow build. I know heavy arrows and extreme FOC are the hot trendy things right now but I’m wanting to go a different route with this build as I did the heavy arrow thing with my current build. I’m looking for a 250 spine .204 arrow with a GPI of...

    I am hoping someone on here has an old Scheib Industries catalog. I'm I know they incorporated in the early 70's and stopped producing archery equipment in the late 80's. Here are some pics of an old tool they made for crimping metal points on wood arrows.

    When building new arrows, especially ones that are a spine lower and heavier than your past arrows, do you guys move your rest back to center shot (if you moved it a little to get it to tune w your past arrows) before shooting bareshafts?
  6. Arrows & Strings
    I am looking to build some .166 thin and light arrows for 3D competitions, but I more than likely need to dual purpose these arrows for ASA and OPA events in a bowhunter class. The biggest issue is that OPA Bowhunter requires you to have screw in field tips on those arrows. Is it worth the...

    Looking to see if there is anyone out there that could cut some feathers for me? I have some turkey wings from last season that i would like to use on some arrows. Anyone out there that i can send the wings to to have this done? I dont know if i will stick with feathers so i dont really want to...

    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...

    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...

    Finally upgraded bows this year to the Revolt X. I'm in need of new arrows this year and trying to decide what it is I want. I'm shooting a Revolt X, 72.5lbs draw weight, 29" DL, Performance Setting I've been shooting GT Hunter and Hunter XT 340 spine. In an effort to see what some different...

    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...
  14. 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...

    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.
  16. General Archery Discussion
    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...
  17. 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...

    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...
