Shaft Feathers

i got a bow and arrow.. but ARROWS?!?!?!?! GAWD!?

oh, and my draw length is 32 inches. (i have very long arms) so the usual arrow wont do
i got my bow at long last, a pse king fisher :D but the arrows are sooooo expensive! i can either buy really crappy arrows that break after a couple days, or i can spend 200+ dollars on 12 arrows that will last. my mom wants to get me some arrows, but i cant find any that are decent priced and ok quality. where do you get your arrows?
wtf.. why is all the info i put at the bottom?? lol

Wait...$200 for a dozen arrows? Geez, you've been lookin' at the wrong arrows. You don't really have to go with the uber-modern, super-light weight, "best-of-the-best", carbon-fibre/titanium/frog's hair shaft material Wunder-flitzen arrows, ya know. I get by fine with wood-shafted, feather-fletched arrows, and so do thousands of others.

Plus, since it is very difficult to find ready-made arrows (or even just ready-made arrow shafting) in a length which suits your draw-length, perhaps you should simply learn how to make your own arrows. It really is not very difficult to do, once you understand how and why an arrow actually behaves in flight (as well as once it reaches the target, whether animal, haybale, paper or whatever). Here are a few websites/forums to help you learn the art and science of arrow-making:

http://tradgang.com/ (if you plan on bowhunting, take a look at the "Ashby Reports"; they're worth the read)

http://www.bowyers-den.com/

http://primitiveways.com/

You can purchase supplies from one of these places:

If you just don't want to make your own, a lot the folks at the forums would be willing to supply you with arrows -- and it wouldn't cost $200/dozen.

By the way, the main reason arrows break is because they have some sort of defect. And because the person using the bow simply doesn't have enough skill to put the arrow where it belongs -- in the target (caroming off rocks, trees, etc is probably the Number One cause of defective arrows - and even carbons break). I'm still using most of the wood-shafted arrows I made more than 4 years ago. (another big reason arrows break is because they are not suited for the archer/bow combination they are being used with)

Oh, and the PSE Kingfisher is a take-down recurve that can be used for bowfishing AND bowhunting AND target archery It ain't designed specifically for bowfishing. My first "adult" bow also had a threaded insert in the same place, so it could be used for bowfishing -- and it could also be used for target archery and bowhunting (and it was, with no problems). And the idea that "any arrow will do for target work" just ain't true -- some are better than others, yes, but they all have to be made for the specific bow/archer combination (same with any arrow, for any purpose); properly-made arrows make all the difference, once you have good archery ("bow-shooting") skills.
