  • New arrows

    New,but probably 25 y.o. snagged off epay. Bought the Trebark 2117's,dipped and crested 4 1/2" shield cut. Young feather burner and 4 Bitzenburgers makes short work.

    I shoot competition 3D with hotrod recurves and longbows.Been at it from the invention of McKenzie targets back in the 1980's.

    I usually go through a cpl dz shafts a season..... the last 1/2 dz get broadheads screwed on for hunting. These are for 2019.... got another dz of carbons to set up. Will post up a pic of those when done. They were a Christmas gift from one of my sons last year. I still like aluminum but,they just keep getting harder and harder to find.

        Randy,if it's straight,as in no limb twist..... and in pretty good shape,depending on model.... you're gonna get the best $$ selling it on Ebay.

        Just have to take a bunch of pics. But look on the bay to see what your model is bringing.

        A gun show wouldn't be my pick of places to sell it. Good luck.

          I'm glad to hear aluminum arrows are still in demand. I just looked at some I have not 5 minutes ago when I was cleaning out a shed here, first time I've seen them in years. They're Easton xx75 2117s. My son in law is a hunter and hunting guide and usually kills a couple of deer a year hisself. I asked my daughter a few years ago if he'd want them and she said he only used carbon, I thought okay. I'd love to get back into shooting a bow but I have a bad elbow so it's probably just a dream.

              Bear,I still shoot woodys..... heck,make the dang shafts on one of our moulding machines.It spits m out 3 at a time,23/64".

              But,we shoot in the rain and they get so saturated it just becomes too much work. They shoot great on nice days.

                            Mid 40's Walker Turner in minty condition..... this is the "full base" model. Air over hyd vise..... and a Craftsman 618 lathe bed that gets used for a bunch of fixturing.

                            Arrows are old Gamegetter's 2117 that I fletched up a col weeks ago for one of my sons.

                              New 2215's,3.... 4" Turkey feathers. Crummy pic but,this is the oft misunderstood 1939 16" Walker Turner bandsaw. Cast iron base was broken in several places,which we Tigged up. The tires were m.i.a. and got custom rubber epoxied on,then lathe turned to crown and trued up.
