Perfect Carbon Arrow for Recurve Bow-Accuracy+Penetration. mmmmm

I LZ controlled five five six working on some hair today I have a local hardware stores at stocks the PSE radio we've STL hunters this is a 200 series arrow this is a really a very nice arrow this is a bad-ass arrow they only stock these arrows and when I talk to them a few months ago and asked them about arrows they said yeah they'll never even carry another arrow because they have so much confidence in these but what I have found with the PSE stl hunters is that if your bow for example recurve archery only this applies when I'm speaking today about recurve bow recurve bow arrow making and some things that I do to customize the arrows that I use for different purposes but basically short and sweet is I've got a very good supply and access to the stl hunter arrows which I love what I have found is that if your bow is rated for 45 to 50 pounds use an arrow less than pse rates that arrow for for example on my 45 and 50 pound bows that that would call for a 200 series area of this one however I get I can use the 100 series arrow which does have less greens per inch than the 200 but I sort in mine too they come in 32 inch lengths and I shortened mine to 29 and a half inches which makes the arrow stiffer and they fly just great and I used the vanes the reason I'm building these today is because they have I bought these on eBay not at the hardware store sorry guys but these have the 4 inch plastic veins and I like I've used I've got feathers I've got all kinds of stuff with whatever I want but I choose to use the plastic veins because they are more durable they're weatherproof period and they I use justice just a bare weather rest on my recurve bows which is highly recommended I do have a couple of those that I shoot off the shelf and what I do is I put short little cuts in the arrow Fletch's just like a feather I just take a pair of scissors and cut so that when it goes through there it doesn't interfere nearly as much it acts more like a feather these are the blazer vanes these are the short two inch things but what I'm doing today is I've decided to build these arrows I got a dozen a dozen of these radio weave arrows with 4-inch Fletcher's for 60 bucks free shipping and and I can use those out of a variety of my bows but I know that they fly good out of my 45 and 50 pound bows and I recently got a 75 pound bow well I can actually use this arrow in that bow if I do a couple of little cheap things to it now Three Rivers archery and there's some others out there that have very good parts outstanding quality but you can get some of this stuff at your local hardware store for example if you have arrows like I do for my compound bows this is a carbon express Terminator hunter I can actually use that that that arrow right there if I have you know half a dozen of them and I wanted to say commit two of those two to my recurve bow I can do some things to this arrow and that's kind of what I wanted to show you baby this applies for arrows that you're going to use for whatever bow you you know standard using now anyway and it comes in the form of very simple parts of rest inserts like these forgive the mess this is my arrow building mayhem shop right here but I've got general how you can see I'll show you I'm not I'm not Shane I don't give a damn I've got a worn out the wall drill all these are just team tools you need no special tools whatsoever to do this these are these are gold tip brass inserts that a lot of us use in the tips of our arrows to give us weight in front of Center weight so that our arrows can fly true and so that they can have some mass on impact today's bows today's archery and Comm now in the compound world those those right there all about Steve or their intended use is from bottom to top they go from that bow is an 80-pound bow and it's it's all I can do to to work for this this is the PSE game sport a Polaris and that's what they're badass but that bow right there for all intents and purposes the only one I'd ever need it's about 30 inches axial axial and I've got here's my recurve section you can see some of them are missing there that's a that's a bear archery black bear interesting that it has a brown belly and back this is a Kodiak hunter this is a really nice recurve bow really nice recurve bow but you can see there this is a good example you can see here that I have stl hunters radio we've hunters this is a 100 see if I can get this soon see it's upside down so just bear with me I can prove it and it's a 100 series arrow that I have and that's a 50 pound bow I know because it says it right there it's a 50 pound Kodiak hunter beautiful bow but I'm using a 100 series arrow out of that and the reason that I can do that is I've got weight up from those are brass inserts so I ran out of brass inserts these don't fit these fit aluminum arrows really what I'm looking for is weight I don't care if it's brass or not so I went to the local hardware store and I purchased a stick of threaded rod this is quarter inch this is quarter inch threaded right take my word for it fits beautifully the price definitely show you that the price was this is horrible at least from my point of view $5.99 is what I paid for that six bucks so I came back and I cut a one-inch section and a one-inch section weighs about 75 greens then I cut a two-inch section and a two-inch section lo and behold weighs 150 grains so I cut there two inch sections and you can see how many more I'm gonna have I mean this this threaded rod was six bucks for a piece about six foot long so I'm gonna get a whole bunch of 2-inch pieces out of that but as I was walking out I looked at the wooden dowels that were there and I picked up quarter-inch these are actually very good wooden dowels these are quarter-inch Brazilian hardwood and you don't know why everybody wants to show everything that annoys me on YouTube but they do so I will – I hurt right – it's a Brazilian hardwood trust me anyway nice wooden babel guess what it fits it fits every single arrow carbon arrow that I've tried it in inside the arrow so you can take a you can take your and never make permanent modifications to your arrows unless you're really dedicating them like I have these with zwicky's 135 grams Winky Delta they're not deltas they're four blade four blade up there but you can insert and I could take that arrow right there and pull off the nock and insert a 29 inch length of this wooden dowel in there and it adds grains per inch and what that gives you is power today's archery is a lot about speed but years ago and the type of traditional archery that we're all participating in the Zen of it the the the foundation of it is power so I'm making some arrows today that are going to provide me with power versus speed I'm gonna have some good speed because I'm using a 200 series arrow in the 50 pound bows I've got four-inch veins on those and I have up front here I have a two inch section of threaded rod fits in there very nicely but what I did was I took a short section of wooden dowel and I cut quarter-inch little quarter-inch pieces and I can insert that in the arrow using the threaded rod and find its seating point using a insert and I'm using the PSC red inserts in these so that I can identify the arrows and I seat all of that then I without gluing without gluing I pulled the insert back out and the threaded rod pretty much tap it on the floor and it falls right out I'm gonna show you in just a moment then I tip the arrow up put a couple of drops of that superglue right there that is really good superglue that you can say it says quick extra strong super glue and it is it's a very good stuff a couple of drops of super glue down in there and that seats that little wooden plug then I put the threaded rod halfway in put some superglue you know put some super glue just real quick right along the threads a little goes a very long way and then I push it in with the insert pull the insert back out just a little bit put a drop of superglue on it and then seat it Ram at home and you need to you need to put once you put the superglue on the insert itself you need to go ahead and and push that in quickly because it will set quickly but the end result is folks is that I've got a I've got an insert and I didn't have to pay I pay six dollars where a pack of these brass inserts that you see there is about 15 dollars and they're great they are awesome but we can accomplish the same thing the work this is a workingman's custom arrow and make no mistake this is custom arrow building that you're doing and there's no no better gratification we all know that we get bows we set them up we're trying to gear our bows towards the type of hunting we're doing so I can take these arrows with the wooden dowels inside them which adds about a several grains per inch and transform that arrow into something that I can now hunt hogs with I like to use broadheads in the hundred to 125 grain range for deer thin-skinned gain anything skin gain so I can use with this weight up front if I put this 150 grains up front and underneath that insert and I can I'll have 150 cranes and weight up there and I can mount a hundred grain broadhead and I like the carbon express natives I like those wiki's the the two edges wiki's are badass any of this wiki broadheads but basically the traditional type steel non-vented non fluted two blade broad heads are will always get the job done they are notorious for stopping big game but the point is is that I have plenty of weight up front here and so I can use that hunter grain warhead upfront on top of that arrow and it gives you some options and now I can take that arrow I can pop the nock and off of this thing and I can drop that wooden dowel in there and throw a 160 grains wiki up here and I can go hunt pigs with that thing so I've got some supersonic versatility in my arrow making and and you can make these modifications permanent or you can make them non permanent however you wish the point is is that you can get these things these wooden dowel rods at your local hardware store and it's all quarter-inch quarter-inch is the perfect size for any carbon arrow that I have and I've got several I've got just a small sample right here these are both this is kind of interesting these are carbon Express 4560 these are some older arrows this is a carbon rebel 45 60 fits that wooden bow fits perfectly in there no play no slop no wiggle room this is a carbon rebel 60 75 and it fits perfectly inside these are these are cheap Allen Allen company arrows and I say cheap only because of the price these are terrific arrows folks these arrows were rated from 60 excuse me 50 to 70 pounds and I think I pay none I think I paid 21 bucks for them for maybe a package and they are you know for my lighter bows they're too stiff for my lighter bows for my 35 and fifty pound bows but if I if I do what I'm talking about that's one of the problem resolutions why I came up with it is you can use inexpensive arrows cut a two inch piece of threaded rod which weighs 150 grains insert your small wooden plugs in the end of that arrow and glue all that down and now you've got some good really good weight up front which is going to increase the flexibility or decrease the spine however you want to think about that now basically I'm looking at I like to run my hero's if I'm using a 50 pound bow I like to have at least 490 green arrow so I'm looking at about 8 grains per pound of bow on my arrows and the rule of thumb is 10 usually everybody likes to kind of got 1/2 tanh got to have 10 I find that you don't in fact the stiffer the arrow usually one size less one spine weight less it will usually fly like darts if you have weight up front and that's the key if you're just going out and buying carbon express arrows and putting you know putting a hundred grain warhead on it or field tip it's gonna fly kind of goofy if you go out and buy for a 50 pound bow if you buy these 60 75 like I have and I have several of these for my compound bows these did not fly well out of my 45 pound 45 to 50 pound bows they just didn't but when I had a weight up front and a heavier warhead it changes the spine of the era of the flexibility and that weight up front also gives you superb penetration and that penetration is needed on wild hogs you can argue that you could need it on deer a quartering shots on deer we want to get you know basically 20 yards or closer so nothing wrong with having a you know 200 grains of absolute razor blade killing power on the tip of your arrow so you might want to give this a try I think I have I had six dollars in the threaded rod these were 75 cents apiece these are not expensive at all they fit like they're made for carbon arrows you can imagine that adds it adds a little that takes away a little bit of that hollow sound it gives you a very very sweet flying Dart and that's what we're trying to achieve with recurve archery and it's just amazingly rewarding to see that come off of your rest and track that all the way to your target and know that you put that together so I'm gonna go build some arrows folks thanks for watching I'll have some more things coming up soon

  1. I think all educated (or old guys 🙂 will agree that especially in traditional archery kinetic energy is more important than speed for penetration. But I have to question why not just buy the correctly spined arrow with high gpi and use a 140+ broad head? Getting a 500+ grain arrow is very common and will take down any animal in north America. With… the most important thing of all… A well placed shot.
