Archery Terminolgy or the words used in modern day archery are very unique and different.  A feather on a bow is no longer a feather it is a fletch.  The tip of the arrow is no longer just a tip it is called a broadhead. 

When I first started shooting I had to keep going back to the glossary terms in order to understand what to buy and what to call what I suppose to ask for. 

I remember the first time I went to Cabela's I had no idea what to ask for.  I just wanted a target arrow, just a simple arrow to shoot.  I ended up buying target arrows alright but I had to glue the inserts into the shaft and I also had to buy the tips to screw into the inserts. 

Actually I was intimidated by the process of going to the a sporting good store because the terms used was so different.  The bows, well that was a whole different story.  When I started looking a bows all I saw was the price and I quickly changed my mind about buying a bow.  Finally, as you already know I made my own and it worked so I start making more and selling them at reasonable prices.
