    It has been years since the last time I had an arrow saw
    Today received 3 dozen arrows
    Did the first dozen today
    Have 6 setup and tested for hunt tomorrow night
    So far all finished arrows at 406gn +/- 1gn
    so I guess good so far

    W/O pix, it NEVER happened.

    Wood? Carbon? Aluminum?

    I like to fletch my own, tip 'em too.

    90% of my hunting is hog and corn thieves
    So I have been using Victory V3's with great results

    Nothing like cutting, and fletching your own arrows. Can add wraps too.

    Yeah, I like to wrap a crest around mine too. Haven't gotten into the hole dipping/spinning and painting though. I have enough distractions. LOL
