  • Q:

    I know these are pre-finished shafts, but if I wanted to put a cap on them, specifically a spray cap, what type of paints would be compatible with the finish? Or should I just use a cap wrap and be done with it?

      A:

      HI,
      I'm using wraps because I've found that they make re-fletching easier
      and are very easy to put on without any significant arrow weight change.

      I would just go with a cap wrap

  • Q:

    1.When using the spine chart would you add the weight of adapters/inserts to the point/head?
    2.With everything the same, how many times stronger are carbon arrows than wood arrows.

    Thanks

      A:

      Carbon is a lot stronger than wood. Yes you will want to add the point weight to the shaft when selecting the spine of your arrow.

      A:

      Hi Joe,
      I'm fairly new to archery so I can comment only from limited experience:
      1. I didn' use the spine chart to select the arrows. My only guide was
      to choose arrows with a spine equal to or 5 pounds more than
      the bow weight; I shoot a 55# recurve and I use 60# arrows with a
      total weight of 425 grains.
      2. I started with wood arrows but after I've tried the carbon ones I did
      find that they are significantly more resilient when they hit
      branches, logs, etc. that kept breaking my wood arrows. The only
      thing that distroyed carbon arrows is hitting metal head on.
      Regards,
      Dezi.

    It says that the nock and point mounting services are each $6.00 but does that include the nocks and points or do they have to be purchased separately?

  • Q:

    what length should I have these shafts cut to if I have a 28" draw?
    How do I obtain this measurement off of my current arrows?

      I was taught to add 1" to my draw

      A:

      Hill,
       
          The length of an arrow is measured from the deepest part of the nock (where the string goes) to the tip of the arrow where the point and tip meet when the tip is installed.  If you have a carbon or aluminum arrow with a screw in point, then it is also the end of the arrow..  If you have wood arrows then it is the place where the taper starts.  There are no "rules" for arrow length.  They must be longer than your draw so they don't pull off the arrow rest when you pull back.  Varying the length can tune arrow flight to some degree.  Most people are happy with an arrow one inch longer than their draw.  So for a 28" draw, have the arrows cut to 29".  This gives a space cushion, and finger clearance if using broad-heads.
          I recommend buying a book or two on archery that will answer your future questions and speed up your understanding and enjoyment of the sport.

      A:

      We recommend to cut your arrows at least an inch longer than your draw length. To measure your current arrows you will want to measure from the valley of the nock to the back of the field point.

    What glue do you use for fleching?

      A:

      We use a Nitrocellulose for the wooden arrows. You could use almost any of the adhesives we carry. I am a big fan of the fletch tape. It gives a good bond and it can really cut down on mess and drying time.

      fletching tape and a dot of superglue on the front and back works good.

      I use the Bohning fletch tape. It's good stuff so far. It's very refreshing to be amongst quality gear, in our economy, in which under delivering after over promising is the norm.
