PostSubject: Arrows - What to do?   Sun Nov 21, 2010 5:14 am

So, I ordered a bow today. And I bought six arrows from Pacific Archery to start off with.

I have been told that I need to tip my arrows with open cell foam and that Galaxy Foam will cut them into cylinders. But.......What other foam do I use? Velora? Camping foam? I doubt it's camping foam. How much foam should I get? Anything specific I should ask of the people at Galaxy foam?

Does anyone have any tips on the how to's? I've been told it should be capped with a penny to. How about just general how to guideline? I can read well.

I'll be going to Galaxy Foam this week and I was hoping for some pointers and advice before I do since that is this weeks project. Also, dap or spray adhesive? What works best? Yes, I know I can find plenty of Dag How To's on the internet, but I'd rather ask our resident archers what they think.

p.s. If this has already been asked and there is a thread for it that I'm overlooking - Go ahead and redirect me.

Phoxly and Smithy are the guys to talk to. I think they have made their own arrows, and I know Smithy is like on a first name basis with the folks at Galaxy foam.

Just bring the arrows and the cloth you want to cover them with. I have glue and materials for the rest.
