|A Live Action Weapons "Jammer Head"|
ready to fly.
Why just the head? If you have never experienced a full on archers war at a LARP game before I can understand the question. Imagine 20 archers hurling arrows into the fighters on a battlefield. Some hit, some miss but all end up on the ground. While the front line LARPers try and move the arrows out of the way, in the heat of battle... arrows get stepped on. Many times the shafts of the arrows simply bend and the LARPer stepping on the grounded arrow may be able to avoid applying enough force to break or bend the arrows.
Arrow shafts break or bend to the point they cannot be safely shot any longer. When your first arrow shaft breaks it sucks. You feel mad, but you can't be really upset as 99.9% of the time the person who broke it didn't mean to. Sometimes it is just unavoidable.
|Modular Foam Arrow Head|
Many in LARP started designing threaded arrow heads to fit on standard threaded arrow shafts. This allows an archer to quickly change out a broken shaft and save money and time in the process. The only downside to a threaded arrow head is it is a bit more expensive but it will pay for itself after just 1 arrow shaft break.
Some sites have arrows but few have just the head. While you can make them yourself (do you trust your design not to hurt another player?) buying them in a molded foam is a hot ticket.
