    Smile Arrows for a longbow

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for some advice on what arrows I should get for my long bow. I want some that are half decent and reasonably priced, but not really expensive. I've looked on lots of different websites where some are really cheap and some are really expensive, but to be honest I wouldn't really know what is a good price to pay for a set. I want some ready made ones, as I wouldn't know where to start with making my own, and just wondered if anyone can recommend any??

    Thanks

    Depends what you want really - I have a nice set of tournament arrows from John Catley (Google Little John Arrows) which were about 95 delivered but I also have a cheap field set from Aardvark which came in around 55 for breaking in trees (until I get better at guessing distances).

    I'll second John Catley as the best bespoke arrow maker in the country.

    Reviews here and contacts:

    Archers Review: Little John Matched Arrows Review

    Archers Review: Little John Arrows Review

    Give him a ring though as he doesn't usually like emailing people.

    The Longbow Shop has basic ready made arrows from 60 and weight matched ready mades from 85

    Thanks for that guys! I have looked him up and his arrows look really smart :-) but so does the price, I am just looking to get some cheapish ones while I build up my skills as I am new, then I will look at getting better arrows and or a new bow.

    Thanks very much for your replies though

    Much appreciated
