Low priced arrows
I'm looking for cheaper arrows, that aren't complete junk, not for hunting, but just for summer target practice. Any suggestions?
I use Beman ICS Bowhunters for everything. Target/3D/hunting.
Lancaster has them for about $35 for a half dozen finished arrows.
Reasonably priced, durable, and straight enough for anything I'm capable of doing.
Fleetwood carbons. They come prefletched with vanes or feathers. 31" with inserts installed but they send an extra set of inserts so you can cut to length.
X2 on KPC. I have always shot Easton ACC and Montec broadheads. Got tired of spending so much on arrows and broadheads. So I just went to Beeman ICS and muzzy broadheads
KPC X 2. Great shaft and very affordable
Lancaster has the Beeman "White box" arrows for $5.00ea right now.
You can get some Chi-comm arrows cheap on EBay. Some of the guys on LW speak well of them....especially the wood and bamboo shafts.
I pick up arrows crazy cheap at Wal-Mart after archery season. Our Wal-Marts will have Carbon Express arrows eventually marked down to $1 each.
I didn't know the chi-coms even made arrows. I hate to think what would happen if I tried to launch a wood or bamboo arrow....
Gold Tip Expeditions. Now they just call them the Hunter. They are hard to beat. I actually do the majority of practice with the hunters and hunt with the Pros but the Hunters shoot so well I will probably hunt with them too this year.
When practicing do you guys lose or wreck a lot of arrows generally?
Not usually. The only time I really ever ruin an arrow is if I'm shooting groups in a single face target and I hit another arrow. Even then, it's usually just a ruined nock.
As far as losing them, not really very often.
A dozen arrows last me a long time.
I do at when trying to site in distance(60 yards or more). I hate it. Looking into getting a backdrop to put up behind my 3d deer to prevent losing them when sighting in distance. Note: i'm not hunting at these distances I just like the challenge of it.
