I believe there is one other factor, perhaps a more important one.
They are ineffective. I have used a variety of arrows and without a
doubt the golf tube arrows result in fewer kills for me for a number
There are many folks who object to driving 15 hours to a war only to
be killed in the first 10 seconds of each battle by arrows. With
really good arrows -- better than the Baldar Blunts -- the archers
would quickly become THE offensive force on the battlefield.
Last war I had a bad day. I was ineffective, got killed early, missed
a lot and eventually spilled my whole damn quiver. As a result I only
got 11 kills.
I like the Baldar Blunts, but I suspect we archers are powerful
enough that we don't need to improve the technology any further.
