G. Bradford -- English Traditional Arrows
11 Marlborough Close, Weston, Hitchin.Herts, SG4 7DN, England

Ted Fry of Raptor Archery Inc. splices a bright color (like our Fluoro-Chartreuse) at the rear of the fletching making for a highly efficient "Tracer".

Outstanding feather splicing from Arrow Art (P.O. Box 2122, Howell, MI 48844 (517-546-0087)).

4 Inch Round Back are ideal for high performance carbon shafts.

This is a simpler example of "feather splicing". The feathers are 5 inch Shield Back. Using a bright color for the rear part of the feather, increases the visibility of the arrow when it is shot. The shaft is X7 aluminum.

5 Inch Trueflight Round Back on aluminum shaft. Color combinations are almost limitless with Trueflight's 14 solid colors and 8 Trueflight Barred pattern colors. This shaft is XX75 aluminum.

Classic 5 inch Shield Back on a hand crested arrow by Kustom King (5435 75th Ave., Schererville, IN 46375 (219-322-0790)).

4 Inch Trueflight Round Back Purple Barred on a fast X7 aluminum shaft.

This is a classic traditional arrow by Three Rivers Archery Supply (Box 517/400 H.L. Thompson Jr. Drive, Ashley, IN. 46705 (219)587-9501/Fax(219)587-3078). These feathers are 5 1/2 inch red Trueflight Barred Shield Back.

This is a "Flu-Flu" arrow made by fletching 6 sections of full length feathers, each about 6 inches long. (Flu-Flu arrows are used for shooting at flying targets. They will fly straight and fast for about 20 yards, then rapidly slow down and drop to the ground.)

Click here for complete instructions to make this kind of flu-flu.

Another way of making a "Flu-Flu" arrow is by wrapping full length feathers around the arrow shaft. This arrow uses 4 full length feathers of 2 colors. Only 2 full length feathers are needed in most cases. We use "contact cement" on the fletching area of the shaft and base of the feather. When the contact cement has dried, we just wrap the feather in a spiral on the shaft.

Notice: If you are a manufacturer of arrows and would like your work shown here, please send us a photo and description. We will try to post as many examples as practical.
