I made these arrow holders today. I had nothing better to do. They were so easy to make and design. I plan on keeping one, giving one to the BF, then donating the other 3 to my local archery club.
Just curious everyones thought on what I came up with.

Very cool. Just wondering did you use different colors of duct tape or did you paint them?

I have some similar as far as design. I had to put a square base on them to keep them from tipping over too easily.

Yours look great. Nice job

I used the new Colors Duct Tape. I started to airbrush them, but it was to hot outside and the tape was much easier. I probably will airbrush one sometime just to have something special..lol

I was really tired of just throwing them on the ground then having to bend over and get an arrow each time I shot.

Also, to the comment of keeping them from falling over, I was thinking about putting a couple inches of concrete inside the tubing to add sum weight? Anyone ever tried?

That will help some but, make them more heavy. Keep in mind general construction engineering. The higher up you go, the farther out you have to go.

I can't really tell, but I am going to assume those are made out of PVC? If they are, there are PVC bases you can get that the pipe fits into... will help hold them upright.... basically is like a square piece at the bottom that makes it look like an upside down T. My club has these and they are quite nice ... and cheap

screw that cap to a piece of plywood, and you'll even be able to bump into it. PCV and deck screws, a match made in heaven.

Good thinking. Our club has a few very similar holder floating around to use.

What's wrong with a hip quiver??? They look nice though!
X2 on both comments.

They have them at one of the ranges I shoot at, not that "cute" though. Most of the regular shooters there hate the things. They get in the way. People leave them on the line when your shooting and people trip over them. One second your shooting and then someone else comes up and starts shooting and sets one behind you and oops

Quivers are a better way to go

I hate hip quivers. Tried one and my arrows kept falling out. I would much rather not have my arrows banging against my leg

Get a better quiver. :D Mine is comfy, it doesn't bang around, it's quiet and the arrows don't fall out unless I'm hanging upside down, which I don't do that often while shooting. The bonus is you then have pockets to carry necessities.
