Finished my arrows for the 2023 season
« on: July 14, 2023, 08:24:33 PM »

I finished my arrows yesterday for the upcoming season. Once again, my wife, Leah, did a phenomenal job enhancing my flame cresting. I will be taking these with me on my fall moose hunt and she painted a lot of good juju on them. Go, Team Haverstick!

Specifications: The shafts are 5/16" red balau from Forrester Woodshafts. The fletching came from Ozark Feathers and the broadheads are 190 grain Meatheads. The average arrow weight is 760 grains. They will fly slow but hit like a freight train! I will be shooting them out of a 62" Wild Horse Creek longbow that pulls 54 pounds at 28".

Wow, those are nice!

I need to make another dozen arrows.  I've been shooting a number of mismatched shafts in practice, need to get them all on the same spline, weight and wood.  A friend is building an English longbow for me, 45 lb pull to ease my creaking shoulder so a fresh set of arrows will be in order!
