Description of the Product

Famous Hungarian Szaloky Kelemen -arrows, loved by archers, available off the shelf.

The Eurasian Steppe is a huge ocean of grassland that extends all the way from Manchuria to Hungary. On this open steppe horse riding tribes have lived, hunted and fought since before history. Some of the most famous and feared people to emerge from the steppe have been the Scythians, the Huns and the Mongols. All of the tribes of the Steppe are similar as all of them excelled in the use of the bow, making a riding archer a feared enemy through the ages. This essential skill and tradition of archery is still alive on the edge of the steppe in Hungary where these arrows are made. Bow and arrow have been used in hunting and war till our very recent history and a good arrow is even more important that a good bow when shooting for accuracy, a fact that these master arrow makers know instinctively.

These Szaloky Kelemen -arrows are handmade traditional arrows as good as they come, all the while keeping your budget in mind. The wood used is pine from Siberia that grows slowly and makes excellent tough spines for arrows. The point is a modern field point that sticks to your foam target without breaking it, making these ideal for target practice. You can naturally change the point for a historical model if you want to.

The total length of the arrow from the tip to the end of the nock is 83 cm (32 6/8") and the length of the shaft from point to nock is 78 cm (31"). Experienced fans of archery often shorten their arrows to perfectly fit to their bow and draw length by removing the tip, shortening the arrow and reattaching the point, but full length arrows work well for beginners before honing down to the last final performance tweaks.

The spine rating of an arrow is a measurement of its stiffness, how the arrow flexes and bends when shot from your bow. Having the proper arrow spine is important when you want the best possible accuracy and consistency to hit the same spot with every shot. Any bow will shoot any of these arrows regardless of the spine rating but for optimal accuracy choose spine rating from the chart. Measure your draw length and the draw strength of your bow to know the arrow spine stiffness you should choose. There are four options for the rigidity of the arrow, ranging from spine III to VI on the scale Szaloky Kelemen use. The III is the least stiff and the VI is the stiffest. The stronger bow or longer arrow you use the stiffer the spine needs to be.

The natural real feathers are color-coded so you can easily spot which way you place the arrow on your string. Two feathers are always the same color and these are called the hen feathers. The third feather is called the cock feather.
