Great job you should have them move this to the How To section for others to use.Thanks for doing it.

Nice stuff. It was amazing the difference in flight a 1/2 inch will make.
Relax,

Looked very good in the second video (hard to tell in a hand-held).  I like that little cut-off saw.  I use an X-Acto razor saw in a little miter box.

Thanks everyone! As soon as the rest of the materials come in from 3R's, I'll finish up.

Tim, as soon as everyone's had a chance to look it over, I will have the Mods move to the "How To" section.

Charlie, I tried to get the best shot I could but, the arrow really was flying pretty good at that point. I shot it out of two bows with the same specs and you couldn't tell the difference.

Like Spanky said, we'll know once I get the BH's on them.   :thumbsup:

Magnus, I thought about another coat on the lighter ones to bring them a little closer to the others but, I was still in the 10gr range so, I opted not to. I turned the heat up in my shop room and put a little blower fan I have to help speed up drying time. First time I tried that and it worked pretty good.
Just trying to get an idea of how much it changes the weight. Eg. 1/2" length of Surewood equates to X weight average type of thing.

I like the post of going down 1/4" at a time.

And the second vid shot looked better. It would be nice to see a vid from over your shoulder or from just beside you to see the flight path.

I got out my bigger tripod and this was what I got. Not the greatest camera person in the world so don't get critical on me. This is just to show how the arrow flies. I shot low on purpose as the center of my target is getting real thin and I keep shooting through it and into the plywood.

fancy Don't make you shoot better
Archery is: Getting as far away from the target as you can, and still hit it.
Bowhunting is: Getting as close to the target as you can, and not miss!

Glad they tuned up for you! Sure is nice working with such great shafts as Surewoods. Can't ask for anything better--straight shafts that fly perfect!
