There must be at least twenty arrows in a bow. They are of two types: game and combat. The second ones are designed for shooting at targets, they are used in special tournaments. In addition, they come with plumage, which can consist of both feathers and plastic. We'll talk about how to make an arrow with your own hands, depending on its kind.
First, stock up on the necessary materials. You will need glazing beads (best of all, they are made of beech, oak, cherry or hazel), sheet rubber for tips (4 mm thick), insulating tape, adhesive tape and strong cord. Stapaks can be purchased in any construction market or in a store, they must be well dried, smooth and longer than the intended boom. They should not have any knots, the recommended cross-section is 8x8 mm. From one piece, as a rule, two arrows are obtained, they are inexpensive in the market, and you can easily buy 20 pieces. Leaf rubber will need very much, for 40 arrows - about half a meter. Adhesive tape should be opaque, for example, silver is good. A strong cord should be 1 mm thick. It is recommended to take the insulating tape in black.
Methods of shooting are different: Mongolian, game and others. Depending on this, the colors of the arrows also differ. For example, for "Mongolian" - red, for "elf" - silver color.
Now consider the process of how to makearrow. We make the rod from the glazing bead, then the tip (sharpen one of the ends). After that you need to make a groove for the bowstring and give the product stability (attach feathers and tape). The last step is the change of the center of gravity, for the smoothness of the arrow's flight, you should outline its middle and attach the clay.
In addition to arrows, you can make a compound bow. Its peculiarity is that it is assembled from different materials, which, naturally, is a big plus and makes it much more effective. Such weapons are very suitable for hunting. It is made up of several layers, thereby making the product strong and strong. Previously, only used such weapons, it surpassed all others. Compound bow for hunting is now very rare, but "gourmets" are trying to acquire it, because they understand the whole "zest" and power of this weapon. The disadvantage is a big waste of time for making it. It is known that the compound bow appeared in ancient times. Once the master who made this weapon went to the forest, and on his way there were different types of trees. He approached them and chopped off some part, after which he got a bow made of acacia, ash, maple and oak. Sometimes it was just a branch of a tree, and sometimes it was a lower part, so I had to cut it completely. This bow was very valuable, and now it's a pleasure to shoot from it.
