21192RE: [SCA-Archery] Long arrows
- Jul 1, 2006Well most suppliers of arrow shafts deal in 32 inches as a max, if you find
someone who cuts their own shafting then they can make you arrows any length
you need. I can also explain how to make your own shafts if you wish, they
can be done by hand and if you can make a longbow of yew then you can make
your own arrows.
I don't think footing is gonna be a good idea really, the added weight of
those longer shafts will slow down the arrows as is the footing will be
You might consider going to a hardware store and collecting 4 foot dowels in
the spine and weight you need, if you don't know how find someone who has a
spine jig and a grain scale to select out the arrows you need.
What draw weight is the bow at his draw length anyways?

I know some of you run 'archery shops' and others just have some good
info on what's out there.
Does anyone know where I can get long shafting for arrows? Either
cedar, hardwood, bamboo, or footed shafts? My hubby has a ridiculous
36" draw length and I made him a yew longbow at that draw.
