Not to quibble but it actually means Bow wood that is dark. I thought that is what I said to begin with. Mike

Not a traditional archer, but a francophone. Bois= wood. D'arc = of bow. Nothing foncé (dark) in there! This thread reminds me I should head over to the range this weekend. Good stuff!

So I was out launching arrows, moved out to ~18 yards, and shaved off most of the vane on one arrow with another arrow. Anyone know where I can get replacement feathers? These arrows are 10 bucks each, so I'd like to repair it.

I'll check the shop I bought them at. Gateway Feathers looks good too, but looks like they only offer a limited selection online. Some other places want me to buy $50 worth at a time. Ebay, maybe?

I'd say get some from 3 rivers if you can't find them locally. You need to know if the fletching is right wing or left wing.

You're also gonna need a fletching jig and double sided tape or glue. I'd recommend getting a bitzenburger fletching jig. They're expensive but are worth the money.

You wanna start with the shop where you bought it because you need a jig to put the feathers on correctly.
They should have a fletching jig.
Three Rivers her any number of places would have the feathers, but like I said you need a Jig to put them on right.

You're going to want to buy a jig at some point in the future, but unless you want to buy one now see if the shop where you bought the arrows can fix them.
