- Nov 7, 2013I just received my feathers and points from Sagittarius archery (sagarchery.com) .At $22/100 for 4" parabolic feathers, Sag was the cheapest place I could find that would see in volume.their 11.32 cedar shafts go for $24/doz with points at 30/$10.It's a small family business that only takes phone orders (the woman had to walk upstaris to get decent reception when I placed my order) which I like over the faceless conglomerates.It took roughly two weeks to receive my order of: 200 black and 100 white 4" feathers plus 4 dozen points. the points tore through the recyclable soy zip-lock bag they used. The feathers were in the hardier non-recyclable zip-lock.. go figure, but the box kept everything safe.I'll try their shafts later one when I need more and see how those are.I'm taking my 42" "longbow" kayak camping this weekend for some stump shooting (I made a waterproof case for the bow that straps to my deck) and will begin to make more arrows when I get back.So, I have to recommend:* Sagittarius archery for fletchings and points.* GIBow.com for longbows.On the other hand, there is a chinese company (zhengzhong tang) that uses AliExpress as an Asian Amazon. gread prices $16/doz w/ free shipping...I like the shafts and LOVE the points BUT....I ordered 11/32 shafts and they sent me a much thinner shaft.Communication with the companies is useless and I never received any reply so, once again, I cannot recommend Chinese companies regardless of their pricing.
