the time I have dipped all tweleve arrows once, I can just start
over again at arrow #1 for the next coat.
I think Valley Traditional Archery charges $21.50 for clear, and
$23.50 for color "Quick Dry Sealer Coat". So that doesn't seem to
far out of range.
Keep in mind though, that you can do a LOT of arrows with one can of
- I used a poly stain as well and have a board with nails in it plus
clothespins with holes to match the nails that I use for hanging them after
dipped. By the time I've done the twelfth I can go back and do the first
again for the second coat and once done the second I can repeat from #1
again for the third coat. Seems to work very well for me.
As a side note, I have a great homemade dipper made from PVC piping (1 1/2
inch width) that has a cap on one end and what I think is some sort of sink
adapter on the other that I replaced the plastic bits with a rubber gasket.
It has a screw-on ring that holds the gasket in place after removing the
plastic bits that came with it.
I also discovered (first time I used it) that you will need a second,
smaller hole in the gasket for air so the poly stain doesn't go shooting out
of the tube under pressure when you slide the arrow shaft into it!!!

FWIW, I use waterbased polyurethane stain for exactly those reasons
and it's worked very well. I don't dip with it, I just brush it on
with a cheap foam applicator and hang the shafts to dry using vinyl
covered duckbill clips.
