I am in need of one or two heavy duty carbon arrows. There are no archery shops near me and the cost of a dozen arrows is too high when you only need one. I'd like a Black Hawk Vapor 5000 or equivalent. Any good pure carbon arrow for a 70 to 90# bow. These are very stiff and make an excellent fuselage shaft. Thanks guys!

Check Walmart.

It is getting close to archery season, and I know my Walmart already has arrows out.

Why don't you try a well-stocked Kite Shop (http://gwtw-kites.com/listbycategory.asp?cat=Framing) and get the tubes from there? Use the "Skyshark Straight Rods (P Series)" link for the size you probably need. If you don't see what you're looking for, call them - Steve and Chris are very knowledgeable friends.
The tubes and rods we use for kites are normally seconds from the arrow shaft manufacturers, because kites (and airplanes) don't need a shaft to be concentric and straight within .0005. My kites and airplanes can live well with a couple of thousandths of tolerance! :tc:

Good Idea! Thanks! I do have a Wal Mart 20 miles away, but the kite tubes sound great.

Thanks! Someone else told me about the Black Hawks and said to try to get the 5000 series.
