While thse are not true medieval points they are a reasonable facsimile. Overall, I like them. They do fly and pierce the target well and are not too difficult to remove.A blacksmith friend improved these points by turning them in true bodkin points. He ground the sides down into the classic pyramid bodkin shape. This streamlines the aerodynamics of the point, reduces the weight by approximately 20 grains, and radically improves the sharpness of the points. My arrows have better balance, fly straighter with more stability, pierce the target further, and are easier to remove from any target backings I shoot into. Better that any other point I have ever used. I LOVE EM, and all my friends want them. Well worth the money, especially after they are modified into true bodkins.

If you're trying to make your own medieval style arrows, these tips somewhat approximate a bodkin style tip. They're not really authentic, though--they look obviously machined rather than forged, and the point portion of the head is round in cross-section whereas most real bodkins were square in profile. The latter problem is relatively easily corrected with a little filing or some light forging, though, and all in all these make a decent, reasonably priced non-modern arrow head.

    I got these to point my Tred Barta wilderness arrows. No problems with fitting and they work fine as a field point. They are not as "warlike" as some mediaeval points I have seen

    Comments about Ace Classic Medieval Glue-On Points:

    It takes a bit to sand the shafts and get these to fit properly..BUT! I don't think I will go back to field tips again. After getting use to the larger/ heavier shafts, my aim is not that much of a difference.

    Service and delivery comments:

    It only took four days to get here!!

    Medieval points for an elf arrow

      Comments about Ace Classic Medieval Glue-On Points:

      I added these to an order more or less as an afterthought with the idea that I would experiment with making an elf arrow (a la Legolas). I use 5/16" shafts because my horsebow is only 25# at 28". Turns out that even though these points are listed a being for 11/32" and 23/64" shafts they work just fine on 5/16" shafts. Just make sure you have enough hot-melt on the arrow to fill the 2.3 thousandths of an inch gap between the rear edge of the point and the shaft (i.e., don't worry about it). They look great have a sharper point than field points and work fine. They are a tiny bit harder to extract from a hay bale due to the profile, but hardly enough to mention. My next project will be with bodkins, both short and long.

        Comments about Ace Classic Medieval Glue-On Points:

        I found these heads to be the perfect upgrade to the "vanilla" field points folks typically use. These are machined, that is, turned, and the quality is high. I found that some did have nibs on the points but a touch up with a file took the nib off and I personally find them easy to file back to a point if I hit a rock. They look medieval with a nice patina but are easier on my targets than bodkins with edges are. you will need a proper taper tool to install these, so far I have only used 11/32 size. While not perfectly medieval, my SCA friends love these and they add alot of class to the high quality shafts I fletch. I also used them on crossbow bolts for the SCA and got alot of inquiries about them. The nice thing is that you can use them for stump shooting or rabbits they aren't just lookers.

            I really like these points. As other have stated they chew up the target a bit more because of their round shape, but I honestly don't mind that. The weight isn't too bad either, unless you're really conscious about that. Could be shaped into a traditional bodkin shape if you had a grinder. I put mine on the Noggle arrows, look great.

            I think these points are pretty good, they have shown me that you don't need the fanciest, most expensive arrows out there. Quite often i missed (my fault not the arrow's) and the point hit a rock, and blunted. I tried it out and it still shot straight. For those of you who want arrows that you can resharpend, these aren't for you, but if you're just doing archery for recreation, and you don't feel you need the best quality out there, these are right for you.
