Arrow Building

Buy Arrow Building Supplies at Racine’s Premier Archery Shop

Root River Archery carries the products and tools you need for arrow building. An arrow built to your exact needs is more precise and more enjoyable to shoot. Learn a new skill, and find out why so many archers choose to build their own arrows! 

Choosing Arrow Building Components

We carry a variety of different arrow shafts, and our knowledgeable staff can explain the pros and cons of each kind. Carbon arrow shafts are the most popular choice because they’re more durable than aluminum, but no matter what material you choose, it’s important to get the correct size for your equipment.

Arrow fletching also comes in a wide range of choices, although most bow hunters today use short, high-profile plastic vanes for stability. Your shooting style, goals, and environment are all important factors to consider when selecting vanes for your custom arrows.

Arrow tips affect the point weight and forward of center (FOC) balance. In general, 100-gram arrow points work well for most. Hunters looking to maximize speed and penetration may go with a heavier weight. The archery experts at Root River Archery can help determine the best weight for your needs, and you can try out your finished product at our indoor shooting range.

Arrow Building Equipment and Tools

An arrow saw will give you the power to cut arrow shafts perfectly suited to your draw length, but don’t forget to measure twice and grab your safety glasses before you cut! The next step is adding fletching by using a tool called a fletching jig, along with a bottle of high quality arrow glue. Root River Archery offers several types of jigs and glues, and we’re always ready to help you make your selection.

To perfect your arrows, use a squaring device on the ends before you install the nock and insert. This will also help you down the line by saving time when you tune your broadhead.

A spine tester measures the flex in the shaft of your arrow, which helps improve your accuracy in long-distance shooting. Weighing your arrows with a grain scale isn’t necessary, but it teaches you to fine-tune your arrow building skills over time, and can also be used to weigh individual arrow components. The more information you have, the better your arrows will be!

We Customize Ready-Made Arrows for You

If you want the advantages of a custom-built arrow but aren’t ready to invest the time in arrow building, the pros at Root River Archery can customize arrow length for you. Just bring in your arrows and your bow, and our friendly staff will help you determine optimal draw length and make the necessary adjustments.
