Anybody know of a quality bow shop who does top notch work, especially building arrows. Cant seem to find a place that really knows what they are doing. Thanks!

I would offer to help you out, but Mt. Juliet is probably a little too far for you to drive. \:\) Hopefully, some guys from the eastside can offer some suggestions.

All arrows Ive personally had done havent been squared after they are cut. Inserts ar almost never lined up with the shaft. And if a place gets that halfway right, they cant fletch worth a dang.

Sounds like a good time to invest in a jig and saw.

You know you could order the arrows precut from many places: Lancaster, bowhuntersuperstore, eders, etc.... All you would have to do then is buy a G5 squaring device ($30-$40), some hotmelt ($5) and a torch($10)—you would have to buy those anyway. Most places do not have an a.s.d. or use one.

All the local shops around here have A.S.D's and will square off the shafts. In addition, will rough up and clean the insides of them before putting in inserts. I always buy my stuff uncut though...that way I can do everything at the house. I could just as easily order my arrow shafts from the big name stores but I like supporting the local shops as much as I can....but do the work myself.
