How in the world can arrows be so expensive? I mean, really. How can you justify $80-$120 for 12 arrows? Seems like robbery to me. Should have gold in them at that price.
I have met Mr. Spooney, and know that he is a hard working family man. I too am the same, most of the time I work a second job. Frugal may be a better word to describe either of us. Bitch, however represents something that neither of us are.Wtf - bitching bitch...

How many fishing rods do you have that cost $100+ each? How many fishing rods do you have that cost $20.How in the world can arrows be so expensive? I mean, really. How can you justify $80-$120 for 12 arrows? Seems like robbery to me. Should have gold in them at that price.
Ditto. There was thread about this exact topic a while back and I addressed this aspect in that thread. I have shot my Easton FMJ's over a thousand times throughout the year. That breaks down to less than 10 cents per shot compared to two bucks per shot from my rifle.compare 12 arrows at $125 bucks to your average hunting load box of bullets at $30 . you get 20 shots out of the bullets, but you can shoot the arrows 100's, if not over 1000 times... I'd say you're getting a fair deal.
Do you hunt with a mixed quiver of arrows like you mentioned? Carbon and some aluminum? I agree with bigbulls, do you people fish with cheap rods and reels? You get what you pay for.I am down to two new ones and about three really beat up ones - one of them is aluminum... All slightly different lengths. My practice session tonight resulted in me cutting one fletching from one of the new ones. Just got finished superglueing back in place. I am doing my best to avoid buying new ones but if the weekend goes as I hope I will be in line at Mike's by next week. I hate giving it up for arrows and broad heads more than anything else. May just pick up three singles at Walmart. Ugh!
