Very nice! Yes, it is a lot of work but it's so nice to put them up and say "I did that!"

You went into a lot more detail than I did on my first batch, or the last!


From: tonto59
Date: 12-Jul-18

Wow! You sure that's your first go round? Well done.

From: Nemah
Date: 12-Jul-18

Do the nocks have an indicator ridge? Great looking arrows,easy to see during flight! Nice job! Richard

From: Shooter

No indicator ridge What you don't see is the spine is written on the bow side of each arrow right below the nock with a red sharpie.

Good job. I would let you decorate my arrows any time. Do you have a cresting machine. >>>----. Ken

From: Shooter

My bad it's is a blue sharpie If you look at the left arrow closely you can see part of the numbers I have since changed to a couple of neatly placed dots on the shelf side with a sharpie if I'm using three solid colors.

Nice job

good job! I find it quite rewarding building cool arrows. One of these days I'd like to build a bow!

From: fdp

Those turned out nice.

From: Homey88

Very nice!

From: oldcrowkiller

Outstanding job!

It’s addicting, my friend and you just got the free one!! LOL Soon you will have a top line crester and 10-12 different color paint tubes. Then you will try splicing feathers......Oh boy!! Try to get 36 perfectly matched feathers!. Soon....a chopper, then a burner.....more choppers.. You officially have the bug!!

I’m down to about 30 dz or so for my “ personal use” but it was WAY more before I got help and beat the sickness! LOL! Have a blast, and don’t let anybody stop you! There is always another set you want to try! Arrowchucker out

Really nice.

From: MStyles
Date: 12-Jul-18

Very nice, better than any arrow that I ever made. I’m usually happy if I can make them fly straight.(poc’s and hickory).

From: White Falcon

Very nice work!

From: G.fellow

Nice job! How do they shoot for you?

From: Nemophilist
Date: 16-Jul-18

Nice. They look good.

From: Shooter
Date: 16-Jul-18

To answer a couple questions

Yes I do have a cresting machine I picked up used here.

As far as how they shoot. Actually a little stiff. I need to increase point weight which I hope will cure that. I sort of messed up and used a heavier spine than what I had been shooting. Won't happen again.

All the pretty in the world is useless if they don't shoot right.

Thanks for all the kind and encouraging replays.

They look good, but you likely shouldn't have done that because now you're hooked. It becomes fun to see how nice you can make them look. Good job.
