Since everyone is getting into archery so much I thought we could maybe swap links to good deals online for arrows. I'm looking for super low priced deals for target practice arrows as I'm likely to not be able retrieve them anyway. But all good deals be it low price overall or good quality to price ratio- whatever- would be great to find- for example this summer I plan on getting out to a couple of pheasant hunts so some nice hunting ones would be great.
Prices on Ebay have really gone up since the last time I bought any. Or maybe my search skills suck now....

Prices have definitely gone WAY up for decent poplar/cedar arrows. :cry: I bought a dozen back when I got my longbow for like $30-40, without tips. Not I'm paying $60 for a half dozen, and if I want trade points (which I am getting), brings the price up to $84. And that's one of the best deals I could find for non-crappy arrows (coincidentally also found them on Rudderbows). A full dozen would be $136 with 3 field points (which are free) and 9 trade points...
Here's a link to the ones I'm picking up, not a super-cheap deal but the best deal I could find for a fairly good arrow: rudderbowsarchery.com/shopping/ ... cts_id=440
Edit: Figure I'd add that, if you just want some cheap target arrows, carbon is without a doubt the way to go. Good ones will cost you, but you can get cheapies that will fly well.
I was looking for a link to Merril Marketing Archery for a post on BCUSA, and tried this thread first and found it was not yet mentioned here, so I am taking the quote from the tread it was in and putting it over here, where folks would most likely find it when looking for arrows online.
At $65 for a dozen custom wood arrows cut to size with stain choices and fletching color choices and field tips installed. this is one of the best wood arrow choices out there. Most places you would be paying $65 for a half dozen and usually with out being cut to size and without field tips installed.
So this is definitely a deal to keep bookmarked in your browser.
Sam H wrote One vendor of arrows that I have really come to trust and like over the years is this:
This gentleman makes his own arrows, strings and other accessories. When it comes to arrows he is meticulous about the arrows he makes and sells. He weighs each shaft, nock, arrowhead and fletching separately before making the arrows to make sure that a set of arrows are as close together in weight as possible. We're talking within a couple of grains close. He then re-weighs them after they've been made to ensure they are still that close in weight. Why is this relevant? Well this ensures consistent flight properties from one arrow to the next.
He offers a wide selection of customizations for your arrows to truly make them your own. His arrows are fletched with only real feathers in solid or barred patterns and in a variety of colors to choose from. He can and will fletch arrows with a 3 fletch or 4 fletch pattern and will fletch straight, offset or helical upon your request. You can even request a right wing or left wing fletch (the feathers coming from the right wing or left wing of the goose/turkey which makes a difference in the direction of the spin of the arrow - it is said that a left wing arrow will fly better for left handed shooters etc.) He will also stain the shafts per your request. He also offers painting of the entire shaft or partial shaft dipping per your request too. He also offers different types and colors of nocks as well. Of course the arrows can be made with the correct spine weight to your bow and made to the length of your desire. His arrows start at 32" long and go down from there.
His prices start at $70 for a dozen quad fletched arrows with solid color fletching and basic nocks and a basic shaft stain with field tips. 3 fletched arrows start at $65 per dozen. This is all prior to shipping of course. Any other additions to the orders such as custom colors etc. will increase the price but compared to other places his prices are extremely reasonable and the quality of the product he provides is top notch.
My wife and I had purchased arrows from him for years prior to starting to make our own. Of the wooden arrows that we've shot it is our opinion (and my wife still believes this to be true even with making our own arrows) they are the best flying arrows you can get for the money. In fact my wife wants to purchase more of his arrows when we have the money because she notices that they fly much better than our own arrows we make.
My favorite quotes from Rorschach from the comic Watchmen
"Once a man has seen society's black underbelly, he can never turn his back on it. Never pretend, like you do, that it doesn't exist."
"None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here with *ME*!"

RufusScorpius: Joke's on me, I think. Sitting at the kitchen table tonight wearing dirty socks a t-shirt with holes in it and closed a major business deal with the second largest mining company in the world. Waiting for the punchline...
