fletching my own arrows
« on: January 23, 2008, 04:38:55 PM »
just picked up a bitzenberger arrow fletching tool today, and redid a bunch of my own arrows. lots of fun, put on the arrow wraps and blazer vanes. they look great!! i am, however wondering how archery shops make any money on putting together arrows. i was lookin in lancaster archery supply, and you can buy the whole arrow for only 15 bucks per dozen more than just buying the shafts. at about a dollar for every arrow worth of vanes, that comes out to a net profit of 3 bucks for every dozen arrows they sell. what am i missing?

it all comes down the the QA process of the shafts. The higher end shafts boast a +/- 0.002, 0.001 straitness tolerances. You might need that for competion, but that's crazy for hunting. Plus, all these spin-tights, blazers, etc, those things ain't cheap. Me? I use the heat-schrink fletchings by extreme archery.
