    Default Tubes

    Ok all you internet search Pro's....I need to find a supply of arrow tubes. I can go to Big 5 Sporting Goods and buy Golf Club tubes for 99 cents and just cut them off.

    Does anyone know of anywhere better??

    i think the golf club tubes are going to be your best bet. all i could find was quiver tubs... 3 for 6.99.... not very good.

    go to a golf course and ask in the club house store, they might be able to help you . If that doesn't work out for you just steal them from the golfers, I am sure you can distract them long enough for some one to get them for you

    The "finished edge" is very nice and the rounded is more to keep the edges from rubbing on your arrows, if you have wraps the edges will definately rub them raw if you are just using PVC tubing...

    plus PVC looks like garbage

    Ok, Wheely, please retract my PVC idea...... I was still coming down from that "Crack" high this morning.....as soon as the halucinagens wear off, I'll be back....

    Good points Dredly.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to fold over the top???

    Using the Golf tubes, I have a good sized tube that can be used if I can just figure out how to fold the top down.

    I am willing to send some to someone if you have a smart idea you want to try. Otherwise I have a lot of useless quiver tubes
