I would like very much to see cresting color combinations and patterns. I will begin to use a new cresting tool on my first batch of shafts. The shafts are walnut stained, and I will be fletching with natural turkey feathers. I hope to add some color to the arrows with the cresting. thanks

I have only really used two designs when I had the choice...

primary- red cap....two thick black lines bordered by thin silver lines.

secondary- black cap......one red thick line bordered by thin silver lines

red barred fletching...green flou snap on nock....

cresting should be unique to you.....a way to identify your arrows. when I shot in Maryland a guy that walked the range hunting arrows with metal detector for spare arrow bucket....would always hold mine out as I always used the same patterns and colors every time.

I picked red as it is easy for me to see....especially with flour green nock. the rest is because I thought it was pretty. LOL

keep em sharp,

Holy Toledo Snag !!

I guess being a photographer, and Scottish, has me looking for color combinations. Not to copy, but rather to inspire me, to figure out my own color combination.

use your tartan colors....I am Clan Gunn and thought of having a wrap made to match the tartan...unless you want to paint them by hand.

I will post up mine this evening...

keep em sharp,

For some reason I always liked the old pearson fletch on their commercial arrows.

pretty simple, but ive never seen anyone's arrows look like mine. i usually use the same one.

From: Whittler

If your don't have a crown and your just going to crest put white under the colors like yellow, red, orange etc.

The white will make your colors brighter and not dull. And seal over them with a poly. I use water base, the oil base will turn a little yellow.

My preferred hunting arrow. Cedar Bear X-300 clone!

here are some of mine but like mentioned above my standard arrow setup is pretty much same as one 3rd from left.....minus I usually put red barred fletching on them and a black strip on either side of the yellow....no pictures on computer of that one though but these will give you an idea.

ones on far right I won in auction for FEARLESS IN CO years ago...they were done by ARROWS BY KELLY with turkey fletching dyed pale yellow, chundoo shafts and his own design using my red, yellow and black with silver borders.

keep em sharp,

Wow! thanks guys some great stuff. I especially like when there is a band between the nock and fletch. This inspires me . Now I am thinking of splicing a bit gof red or white feather to the tail. thank God I am retired now !

Six of each waiting to be fletched. About half of what I did over the winter -- pretty obvious I was getting a little stir crazy!

I don't have pictures to post but stained shaft with just cresting lines, I just don't care for the capped look. DANNY

Kevin,

There's an awful lot of overlap with that brand. Do you live with the bump or trim them???

Sorry for the typo, I meant (cresting ) not creating....stupid phone !!!

"Kevin, There's an awful lot of overlap with that brand. Do you live with the bump or trim them???"

I trim them, always making sure I leave the bar code visible. That way, with the help of a hand held bar code reader that I carry in a holster at all times, I can always determine which arrows are mine.
