Default Custom arrows..

I was bored and since we want to start taking video of our bowfishing I thought this would help the camera pick up the arrow better and follow the shot..What do you think????

Hunter, are those wraps?

Any problem with the ams slides going over them?

They look cool, I like the orange and blue myself.

I'm guessing they're dipped. I used vinyl wraps on my muzzy carbon mag arrows to brighten them up. It did brighten them up, but shoot a couple of gar and they get all torn up. When they're torn up, they do interfere with the slide.

Nice collection of arrows Darin!

I dipped them redneck style, with krylon flourescent orange, It doesnt interfere with the slide at all.. They shoot great and you can see them real good..

I have been thinking about trying differnt color combos with a few of my arrows to see how it turns out. They look good though.

Did you dip them or spray them??? I know the Bohning dipping laquers recommend dipping the shafts (oh yeah - wood arrows)in white before the bright colors like Florescent orange or Satelite Yellow.

Sweeeeeet. Now it's time to go stick some fish with those bad boys.

High vis yellow or chartreuse would work a lot better than orange, especiallyunder lowlight conditions.
