View Full Version : Arrow Straightening
08-15-2002, 06:30 PM
I have an Easton aluminum XX75 arrow that took a hit from another arrow and dented the shaft. It's also bent. Is this worth trying to straighten? If so how do I go about straightening it? I can measure the runout but am unsure of how to bend it back straight.

Replace it. ###Not worth the safety risk in trying to fix it especially if it has a dent from another arrow in it.

Sounds like it would look good in my scrap materials box. I'm sure one of these days I'll need some aluminum tubing just that size.

Cut it short up by the fletches then insert a Bic pen into the shaft. ###Makes a neat little pen to have laying around.

Kmitch, I also would use Todds pen idea. I did know a man named "Pop" Creason in Enverness Fl. that I watched straighten one of my arrows with his bare hands. When I asked how he did it he would not tell. He was about 80 then and I guess he took that secrete to the grave with him..

Might turn it into a ramrod for my M/L. It's the right diameter. Machine a couple of ends from aluminum and loctite them in. Camo ramrod.

Put a couple of bent ones together with some rubber tips and make your own shooting sticks
