These are the most beautiful arrows on this list.
They are old school in their construction but are made with remarkable craftsmanship. They are handcrafted for increased consistency and accuracy.
Old and gorgeous, yes.
But are they good?
These are the only non-carbon arrow on this list.
They’re hand fletched from bamboo, rather than the modern carbon standard. Although bamboo doesn’t shoot as well as carbon, these arrows are so well made it makes up for the lack of modern technology.
The bamboo lends itself to a sleek looking arrow.
Additionally, an attached 150-grain arrowhead and hand fletched pheasant vanes give the piece a true old fashioned arrow aesthetic.
But don’t let the looks fool you just yet…
Although beautiful, the outdated construction materials may cause these arrows to degrade faster than others.
Though that’s a non-issue for lovers of this classic look.
Although these arrows don't use the most modern materials or technology, they’re extremely well made.
Each spine is handcrafted and fletched, and then sorted to ensure each is up to snuff.
This arrow is truly a marvel of beauty and craftsmanship.
They are also front heavy, which is universally good for an arrow’s accuracy.
Due to their traditional construction, these arrows come ready to shoot. The arrow and nock are pre installed, and no additional cutting is need before use.
These are relatively thin arrows which means they should have a decent penetrating power despite being light.
What’s the catch then?
It’s not all good news with the old school constructions and materials. There’s no weight or straightness tolerance associated with these arrows. Which means they have no quality guarantee.
You may experience decreased consistency with some batches.
You may also notice your arrows make a lot more noise.
Bamboo is more flexible than carbon, so you are going to experience more noise on the draw and release. For this reason, these may be better arrows to use for smaller game.
Truth be told...
These arrows aren’t likely to last as long as their carbon counterparts.
Bamboo is much more prone to the microfractures that eventually degrade an arrow to the point of not being usable.
The less sturdy construction means you may also find yourself holding a broken arrow more often.
So, are they worth it?
Although these arrows forgo many modern advancements, they are still viable arrows.
If tradition or beauty is important to you, you should definitely consider these arrows. They are the most beautiful on this list and shoot at a very precise and consistent level.
