View Full Version : 'Rolled my own"...
A friend of mine from work showed me how to do some fletching tonight. He's got me trying 4 4" helical parabolic feathers. I shot a couple at his house and they seem to stabalize the arrow better than the 3 5" sheild cut's that I had on my CE 6075's.
He then let me borrow his jig and did half a dozen more tonight here at the house...I'm liking it!
Soooo...what's everyone shooting for arrow set-up this fall?
I'm going to use these CE Terminator Hunter 6075's with the 4 4" yellow parabolics. They are cut to 29.5" and I draw around 28". I'm adding in the 100gr brass inserts and will be using Razorcaps weighing around 150 grs. I've got ferrules for everything from 125-200, I've just got to see which groups up with the corresponding field pt best. The arrows themsleves are shooting well with standard inserts and 250gr field tips, so I doubt I'll have to work too much harder to get'em tuned.

Sounds good, make sure the deer aren't lined up up when you shoot unless you intend to pack them all home. /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
What are they going to wind up weighing? Also did you notice any more noise with the 4x4 set-up?
With the 250 gr tips, they should weigh around 640 gr.
I haven't shot the 4x4's enough yet to gauge...I'll be shooting them some more tonight comparing them to the 5" sheilds and parabolics. I'll let you know how they sound.

My big game bowhunting has come to a close, but here's what I carried this year. I will also carry these for winter rabbit hunting with either the Judo or a Hex Blunt.
Beman ICS Classic 500 shafts, cut to 29.5", spray crested in yellow, black and red by yours truly, with yellow Bohning nocks, three shield-cut 5" feathers (2 white, 1 barred).
Gold Tip inserts with 170 gr. Gold Tip screw-on weight added. This weight is all up front.
Magnus two-blade broadhead, 125 gr, OR Zwickey Judo, 125 gr.
Total arrow weight: 576 gr.
I'm shooting these out of a 51# @ 27" Bob Lee Classic 60" recurve.
They fly REAL nice.
Here they are in my quiver...

Makes me want to go shoot something, even if it's just a dirt clod. Fortunately I have several months of whitetail season left, but I am looking forward to rabbits too.
First thing I need to get is a new digital camera to help illustrate some posts. I love seeing your'alls pictures.

What arrow extrication tools are you other stump shooters carrying?
10-04-2006, 02:26 PM
Victorinox Hunter... /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

CRKT M-16 04Z. It's pretty cheap, has a good lock, and a Carson tanto that works well for prying and chipping. One guy at the field range carries a 1/2" chisel.
I have a T-handle puller that you can screw right onto a head to yank with, but it hangs on the wall.
Sometimes, one of those little axes you guys camp with would be handy.

I've gone to blunts because I got tired of all the extrication.....

I've had to whittle out a few judos-
Glynn...so far I don't hear a whole lot of difference in the 4x's...
As far as digging out blunts, I think I might start tossing a samll hatchet in the fannypack.

Falcon----I found that switching from 3 fletch to 4 fletch actually gives me quieter arrow flight. (5 inch feathers on both)
Yolla- Are you using 4x90 or 75x105?
10-06-2006, 05:29 PM
Oh great, couldn't this have waited till March.
11-02-2006, 03:41 PM
Ken---Cliff Duel fletches them for me, 75x 105----left wing helical---shooting right handed, long bow off seal skin pad on the riser and very narrow shelf.

falcon----I hear you---don't change anything until then.
