    I find building arrows peaceful. I just wish I could afford to buy all the shafts I want to try out :mad:

    Isn’t that the truth!

    Yes, I do everything including cutting the shaft with my home-made “Dremel tool” saw.

    I find that building my own arrows is a religious experience.

    To me, shooting an arrow that I didn’t build, would be like shooting factory ammo out of one of my rifles.

    No, not yet…I’m new to the sport and haven’t purchased
    the equipment yet. It’s one of my New Year’s resolutions.
    Can’t wait to start. :bigdrool

    Both ways; but, I prefer to do my own except the cutting. It’s hard to justify the price of a good saw.

    I only bought my first dozen of arrows with my first bow. Ever since then I’ve been making my own. :thumbup

    I like building my own. I really like to build a product and see how well it performs.

    G5 ASD is a must!

    I have found when building my own, the arrow weights are much closer with finished arrows. Within 1 grain or so instead fo 10. I think this is because i clean the insides of the shafts out by pushing some patches through and using a minimal amount of glue.
