How do you guys buy arrows

1235 22
arrows are expensive so do you buy them by the dozen or half dozen.

a lot of shops won't break up a dozen. my shop will so it just depends on how many i trased the year before between 3d and hunting.

2 or 3 every 2 weeks with each pay check.
Sometimes a half dozen if I sell a gun or bow and have some extra money.

By the Doz.....guys that buy them by the half doz and that think they are steep in price usually aren't buying expensive arrows. A shop doesn't break up the arrows that really fall into the "expensive" category.

Always by the dozen. I get bare shafts w/componets and build them myself at home. I then stock up on componets, about every other month, whether i need them or not. I now have a work shop full of componets to build a wide variety of arrows. I'am very fortunate that i get a shooters discount on shafts, etc, etc. Just try to accumulate all that you need to build your own arrows and buy bare shafts and you'll save alot of money. :wink: I hope this helps. :thumb:

Last time was 3 dozen 'inferior' aluminum shafts @ $29/doz -- they were on closeout. Not complete arrows but I thought it was a great deal cause 2317s are perfect for me.

Good carbon arrows are probably quite a bit more. And my understanding is that carbon is sorted within tolerance / and grouped by the dozen. So like others said it would probably be better to buy a dozen.

That said, I have 1/2 dozen ACC 3-71 complete arrows with custom dipping and cresting that I will be selling. Two of them have been shot (but like new) -- the other 4 have not. They're cut to 30 inches with inserts installed. I'll need to list them in the classifieds but thought I would mention here too.

I just bought half dozen CX maxima hunter 250's, raw shafts and uncut for 49 dollars off of ebay. Did this twice to get a dozen. Just need to cut and fletch. Still a little cheaper than the big stores.

I usually buy my hunting arrows by the half, but my comp arrows by the dozen.
