My arrows for the 2022 season

#1 Post by dhaverstick »

Woohoo! I finished my arrows for the season! These are a labor of love I do every year with some special help from my teammate and wife, Leah. This year the shafts are Douglas Fir from Surewood Shafts. I cut them to length, put on the point and nock tapers, and then burned patterns onto them using a butane torch. After the burning, I stained them and then turned them over to Leah so she could bling them out with paint and markers. I sealed the shafts with several coats of polyurethane and then fletched them and glued the points on. All that is left to do is to start shooting them! Arrow specs: The shafts spined 60-65 pounds and the arrows are 28.5" long from nock valley to back of point. They weigh approximately 680 grains. Six have 190 field points and the other half dozen have 190 grain Meathead broadheads.

Wow, Darren! Do you really want to shoot those? They look like something to display and show off.

Great work! 👍
