    what arrows do some of you use?

    I have never shot competition but there are more appropriate arrows for hunting and then some for competition. If I was to try shooting competition, I would probably start out with my hunting arrows unless they were not allowed, I know nothing about competition. For hunting I use camo GoldTip ProHunters and my next set will be the same except black and not camo because in my experience, black arrows are easier to scrape off old fletching and the camo wrap makes a rubbing noise through my WB during the draw.

    Your majority vote is gonna either be Goldtip or Beman but there are plenty of good arrows out there. Just pick one and defend it like its your wife :^O #-o

    does anybody have pictures of how to build an arrow, or could someone take pics for me?

    Don’t let it seem intimidating to ya. Trust me, get yourself a fletching jig and a bottle of glue and you’ll have your own arrows done in no time flat and want to do some for your friends. :thumbup

    The majority vote is for a Bitzenburger jig, I use the straight clamp on a straight jig. Its a piece of cake to use. I’ve only ever tried Goat tuff glue and it works super so far, again majority vote. Play around on an old arrow to see how it works then come back here and ask any questions that arise. The second arrow you fletch will be one of your good ones. :thumbup [=}=]

    Is it hard to fletch arrows becuase i would also like to start myself? And what kind of things would i need to buy to get started?

    this year i did a dozen for the first time ever. it’s really easy. i use an arizona ez fletch helical and some loc tite super glue. i also painted my arrows too which makes it more fun.
