  • Q:

    I shoot a 140-pound @ 32-Inch English war bow that is 80.5 inches long. I need arrows that won't turn into tooth picks when I shoot them?

    I'm not kidding about the weight its all of 140-pounds at 32-inch draw to my ear.

      A:

      This is what the Medieval War Bow Arrow Shaft is made for. It should work for your needs once they are fletched.

      A:

      Tapered arrows pass through the archer's paradox easier and tend to be more forgiving.

  • Q:

    Before I asked if these could be used for hunting but my question now is how do you recomend a person gets the bodkin heads off to install a sharp hunting broadhead? Would heating them work or do you just clamp them in a vise and pull?

      A:

      You will want to heat up the bodkins. They are installed with a heat reversible glue. They will come right off once you break the bond.

      The vendor currently uses a Super Glue for attaching the medieval point.

  • Q:

    Are these arrows good for hunting? Also do you sell any other arrows that can be shot through the War bow you sell or are these the only ones you have shootable with such a heavy bow?
    Asked on 1/3/2012 by Bowmaster619

    3 answers

    • A:

      The arrow itself with proper fetching would work. The broad head I don't think meets hunting requirements however. I'm not sure how easily it would be removed if its glued on. Also it is quite heavy and will drop fast. I assume the war bow will compensate that though.

      A:

      We released these arrows just for the heavy weight Bamboo Backed War Bow that we just picked up in 90-120 pound draw weight. We do carry raw shafting in the Lodgepole Pine and Douglas Fir that hits the higher spine weights needed for the War Bow. The War Bow shafting would be ok to be used for hunting as long as you fletched them and put on good sharp broadhead on them.

      A:

      No, we do not currently carry the points separately. It is something that we may look at doing in the future.

  • Q:

    What kind of jig would one use to fletch an arrow of that diameter? Not to mention the fletchings are usually 7" long.
    Asked on 10/11/2011 by Jack from Earth

    • A:

      This is essentially what I did but I used a Bohning Pro-Class jig.

      A:

      These are usually all done by hand with no jig. Below is a link that takes you to a DVD that we sell that will teach you how to build Medieval Arrows

    • A:

      I scratch built some similar 1/2" arrows, and fletched them with cut Tru-Flight long feathers, at 6" or 7". The first feather was aligned with the nock insert. The second was just short of the insert on the opposite side. The third was positioned by eye mid-way between the other two. Not perfect, but close, and the real ones probably weren't any more accurate. I used Bohning fletching tape and applied the feathers by hand using a clamp without its jig. They were whipped with jeans-weight sewing thread, sealed with Satin Minwax Polycrylic.
