Where are you getting carbon arrow shafts?

Looking to see where everyone sources there arrow shafts from. I can go to Amazon and pick one of the million but I'm sure someone else knows a better place.

Thanks.

Walmart sells them in the fall for about $3.00. That's about the best price I've found. They have them in their hunting section. But they only stock them during hunting season. Anyway that's in Minnesota. Not sure how Walmart does it in FL.

Looks like you can order them from there right now. $2.89 each. Most likely you can ship to store for free (usually can) then just pull the "feathers" off and unscrew the tip, if it even has one.

I found a store that sells them, asked if they had any broken or any in the scrap bin, they gave me a couple that had a slight end damage, worked great for me to join my wings together. Good luck

Best rods by far for aircraft are the wrapped carbon Skyshark rods sold by Kites and Fun Things. Tell John and Marianne Joel Sent you.

These folks were pretty nice to deal with. The prices were not bad.

RCFoam.com has carbon
So does Modelairplanefoam.com

even HK has "some" CF

Joel I love ya but wrapped Kite spars are a bit pricey.
They are all I use in Kites
but my models will have to suffer along with something a bit cheaper.
