Anyone know how to get big fletching?

I intuitively understood that, which is why I bought arrows with 5" shield-cut fletchings. The other option would be flu-flu arrows.

I'm now looking into flu-flu arrows. Flight arrows seem to be less tuned to our needs. I needs to do some testing.

I intend to order a set of 4 Flu-Flus with rubber blunt heads. They are going to be aluminum shafts, with 6 feather right handed helical fletchings. I'll place the order tomorrow afternoon in case anyone wants to get in on shared shipping.

I'll hold off if anyone can find a better price.


Costs:
4 arrows= 16.99
4 rubber blunts = 5.99
UPS ground shipping = 8.99

Okay so I was thinking of trying to make some of my own weapons at some point, my question here is what is you have a bow with sword like properties on the limbs of the bow. Then it would be effective at long and short ranges. You would just have to get used to the different combat style. Id this against the rules for bows tho?

Regrettably Zeffy, we disallow melee/ranged combo weapons like that

OP? No way. Shields are OP - a bow that could be used in melee as well would just be practical. But the rules are the rules.
