Just curious if anyone here uses any of the mail order arrow suppliers as oposed to buying from your local archery shop. I called my local shop the other day and they wanted $50 more for a dozen new Gold Tip carbons than the advertised prices in some of the mail order arrow supplier ads.

I like to support my local shops but don't like it when I feel that I am getting taken advantage of. Maybe I am off base here but I think that kind of profit margin is excessive and offending. If the shops want to encourage more customers to buy from mail order, this is a good way to do it.

If you have used any of the mail order suppliers for arrow purchases I would like to hear of your experience and level of satisfaction.

Thanks, Dave

i have bought arrows over the internet from a couple of shops over here,mainly because the shop that is local to me doesn't stock the ones i wanted and they are cheaper as well.i have known exactly what i have wanted in arrows so there has been no problems,and the shops have been sent exactly as i ordered them.i buy them as bare shafts and make them up myself as this saves money as well,and doesn't take that long to put them together.i'm happy to get my arrows this way as i trust the shops that i order from.

I bought mine from Mountain Archery online. They have great prices and their service is very quick.
Now I make my own but I'll still buy the raw shafts from them.

Closest archery shop to me is over an hour away and has very limited hours during non-hunting season.

I have bought dozens from mail order. When there is a $20.00 difference in the price of raw shafts, damn right I will.

OH YEA!

Keystone Countrystore is awesome. I really like the Blackhawk vapor 4000's. Keystone sells em for $42.00 for the shafts. The only shop here that was selling em wanted $90.00. No way man!!! Dave1 , buy from the mail order. I like to keep my money local too, but not when I'm gonna get screwed.

I order mine from Roy-n-Kat Archery, in Utah. They will make up what you want, do a great job and it is still $25 cheaper with shipping than I can get them here.:)

Try to beat that,

When my local shops don't have what I want, I mail order. I bought some 2314 X7's from lancaster, fletched with helical feathers and they did and AWESOME job. Best fletch job I have ever seen from a shop. I will definitely buy arrows from them again. Very reasonable prices and shipping.

I stock up on supplies at various trad rendezvous', and mail order or trade for almost everything else. Local shops either don't stock wooden shafts and trad stuff at all; or if they do, it's the cheesey mass production stuff.

I to have used on-line to order arrows from Nick Aston (Bowsports) here in the UK & have found no problem. Like bern 1, I order the shafts & make to suit.

I usually try to stay local, but there are certain items that I just can't find here in town. When I do find myself needing to order something, I try to support one of the stores that contribute to this page.

Keystone Country Store
