    Free Toggles

    I'm sure there are many that are already aware of this but I thought i'd mention it for the few that don't know... I had a couple broken arrows that I took to Sportsmans Warehouse this past week to have cut into toggles. The guy in the archery shop had a bucket of arrows that had already been cut and just let me take as many pieces as I wanted. The arrows that you see in shops like Sportsmans Warehouse, Cabelas, Bass Pro Shops, etc. are generally sold at a standard 30" long. Not everyone needs a 30" arrow so they have these shops cut the arrow down to the desired length, leaving a couple inches of arrow that just gets thrown out. If you're in need of some toggles, go to your nearest sporting goods store/archery shop and they should have a bunch of pieces from carbon arrows that they'll give you.

    That is how I got my toggles. I have been hanging on some carbon fiber ones for quite a while with no noticeable wear.

    It(I) might not be the prettiest thing, however It(I'm) is quite functional.

    I'm just going to use my trekking poles. I'm not using them when I'm sleeping any way, and I'm already carrying them.
