Plumbata arrow, set of 3
Exclusive to Slingbow Industries, we offer this set of 3 plumbata arrows. Based on an ancient Roman design, plumbata arrows were intended to be thrown by hand at groups of opposing soldiers in response to ranged attacks. Because they could be thrown at a high or low arc, when thrown by groups, they are extremely difficult to shield against.
We made a small but significant design change, thus our plumbata arrows can additionally be shot from a slingshot that is properly rigged. They can also be thrown with an atlatl. Plumbata cannot be shot from traditional bows or crossbows.
Shooting plumbata arrows take a lot of practice, and can be dangerous for anyone that is not well-experienced with slingbows. Protective equipment is absolutely necessary for the forearm and hand of the bracing arm. If you have not shot slingbows before, we do not recommend this product for beginners.These plumbata arrows come with a heavy fishing point and would be effective against most species of fish up to 30 lbs. as well as small to medium-sized game at short distances. You will need to check your local laws as to the legality of such an item.
Our plumbata arrows are just over 18″ in length (approx. 46.5 cm) which makes them very compact and easy to carry. At nearly 1.4 ounces, or approximately 600 grains in total weight, they pack a heavy punch.
Each set of 3 arrows comes with a complimentary set of 30# draw-weight tubular slingshot bands that are rigged for shooting plumbata arrows. The color of the arrows and bands is determined by availability and may be different from those shown in the photos.
Slingbow Industries plumbata arrows are made by hand in the USA.
