Aside from the mess that is this poste, why do you say that wood should
never be shot from a compound? (And all caps is considered shouting, so why
did you have to shout it out? ;) )
Properly spined arrows will shoot just fine from a compound. I have heard
this Urban Myth repeated many times and it has always kinda boggled me. I
have shot woodies from a compound many times. I do not now have one as I am
more into primitive archery but in past days.... Ahh past days. I figgure it
is something made up by that Easton guy to sell more aluminum arrows.
If someone feels compelled to holler out something like this please explain
why you feel this way? It makes it easier for grumpy old knowitalls like me
to make condescending comments. ;)

shops in Oklahoma can do all the work you mentioned , so i would guess that
shops in California could as well.
as for the arrow heads , what kind you buy will depend on what he plans to
do with them.
field points for target shooting , broadheads for hunting .
also , you don't say what type arrows they are.
fiberglass, graphite,and aluminum arrows , you can interchange the heads,
wooden arrows , you glue the heads on .
again the shop should be able to help you there as well.
hope that helps
be safe, be happy, have fun
WOODEN ARROWS SHOULD NEVER BE SHOT FROM A COMPOUND BOW !
