    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.

    precisely.

    You know it’s a little of both…. it just depends on what kind of time I have at the pro shop.

    Bought my first six, then I got into making my own. This way, I can assure consistency on everything from the cutting length, squareness, fletching placement, etc, etc, etc [=}=] ..Unlike Lineboss1, My wife didn’t have to tell me that I’m anal retentive……….I knew it already……I guess it is a habit from when I learned to reload, as well as tie my own drift rigs……..I know that if I follow the procedures and stick to a strict guideline and observe what I’m doing, I can rule out consistency as a problem of accuracy issues [=}=] :-B :-B

    I’m like Nippers, I reload my own ammo, built my own fishing poles and rigs and now make my own arrows. I guess it’s because I’m……ok, I’ll admit it, I’m CHEAP[/b:2examcfa]! :D I figured if I made my own stuff, I’d be saving money (of course, I’m spending a lot more buying all the materials in bulk #-o :^O :whistle but then I can make more :D ) Naturally when the wife asks…it’s all about quality control and pride of ownership [=}=]

    I’ve never told anyone I know that I reload because it’s cheaper…….I always tell them it’s because I can tailor the round to my rifle, and get the best accuracy possible……….I try not to settle for anything more than a 1/2″ group at 100yds for my bullets [=}=] But I am CHEAP……..at least when it comes to a lot of things, but not my gear………or equipment. I do spend a lot of time looking for the best deal though [=}=]

    I enjoy it and I’m too picky. I want all my fletching the same color and still use 5″ vanes and aluminum arrows :smt67 To me archery is such a personalized sport and while that makes it hard on pro shops to stock equipment it gives the end user thousand of options customize his rig :D
