I shoot white fiberglass blanks with gar points for most everything. They make all kinds of different points and even arrows. But you can buy a fiberglass blank for 7 bucks and the carbon composite is like 17.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

If you don't want to build your own arrow Muzzy has some pre-made with tip, nock, and safety slide (which I highly recommend). What ever path you choose make sure and buy a few extra arrows. I am always having to give my buddies arrows because they will break one or their line breaks and they never have any extras. As far as reels go, if you buy the Zebco 808 reel you will also have to buy a reel seat that screws into your stabalizer hole. If you buy a drum you will have to wind the line up by hand every dang time. I use an AMS Retriever reel with no complaints. You can pick up an AMS for about 55-60 bucks I think. IMO I believe it to be one of the better reels out there. Also, you might wanna read up on snap-back, make sure your line is free and clear every shot. Check it every time. http://www.amsbowfishing.com/includes/f ... occur.html

Thanks for the help, lot of stuff they didn't have back in the day. I bet that smarted some when he let go of the string and I'll bet he was a little gun shy for a while. I would think it could just about take you right out of a boat. He was lucky could have been a lot worst. Thanks again
