Looks like it might have some flex during the cast (AT).  Nice work!

nice job! i really like it! first look and it thought it was bone lol

one thing is i believe that a basket maker is dug into the thrower but no doubt that that will throw darts!!  (AT) (AT)

you should post some pics!

I throw a lot of unfletched darts. It helps me tune them and practice my release.  I finally added some fletching to the darts I take to the meet.
