    New arrows

    Well today I attempted to build my own arrows for the first time. I decided to use some Carbon express Maxima hunter 350's fletched with NAP quick spins. I went out and bought all my own equipment a few weeks ago because I like to work on my own things and I don't want to drive an hour to get some arrows made. It was not as bad as I thought it would be. Here are some pics if you see anything wrong or have any tips by all means let me know. Thanks.

    Agreed!! Blazer vanes and wraps have been fun but now I'm getting into fletching with feathers. Soon I expect I will be splicing feathers for even better custom builds. For now I am starting to add tracer feathers.
    For now:

    Tarantula wrist sling

    Yea I can see how it can be addictive. Working on my own stuff is half the fun to me. Like with my R/C cars and helicopter when they break or crash i love tearing them down and fixing them. Besides that when i do it i know its done right and not half a**.

    Your arrows look great. I will be buying a Bitz very soon and plan on building my next set of arrows. I understand the RC car thing. I was big into them up until I bought the very first gen of the T-Max. I've been looking at them here and there lately and seriously contemplating buying another one.
