Flight Arrows

These are long, light arrows, with very small feathers and little heads, and are intended for distance shooting only. They may be made of Port Orford Cedar, imported Norway Pine and be either self or footed. An exceptionally fine flight arrow is made from thin bamboo shoots. Flight arrows are from 28" to 30" long, sometimes longer.
