    I feel that by making my own, I have more effort into my hunting, besides, it’s a great way to unwind after a day at the office!! :thumbup

    I like to know exactly what goes into each of my arrows so that if something goes wrong, I have no one to blame but myself.

    When I purchase my newest arrows, the pro shop will apply the fletch of my choice.
    After that, I refletch them as need be, at home.

    It’s good to have them fletched while I’m already there shopping or shooting on the 3D range, because they have 12 fletching jigs, on a revolving platform, and can fletch 12 arrows at one time,
    opposed to my Arizona EZ Fletching jig,
    holding but one arrow…

    The shop I deal with is also my Mathew’s dealer.
    So I enjoy every minute of my precious time while there.
    These folks have been trained for excellant Customer Service
    and are taught from a dealer perspective..
    Are excellent techs as well as incredible archers,
    so they tweak and tune, not only sell equipment,
    They will coach new archers with archery classes ,
    invite school groups & birthday kids,.
    They also do one on one coaching…

    It’s great to have a group of friendly archers who know and respect each other, for hunts, & hints to improve technique, a
    nd great people to shoot with indoors, as well as hunting buddies…
    I’m proud to be a friend,c ustomer and confidant of Mathew’s experts

    I don’t have a cut off saw to cut mine yet, but I just have the shop cut them and I do the rest.

    It is really the only way to be sure you get a quality built arrow. :thumbup
