Full set of military arrows for a filming project by Tod's Workshop

All of these are 1/2" ash shafts, tapered according to a specific Mary Rose arrow (MR80A764/158) and fletched with long, low feathers bound with red silk. They have tapered buffalo horn inserts. _____________

The heads are MoL Type 7 needle bodkins, MoL Type 9 heavy war bodkins, Winchester Museum M2 "Tudor" bodkins and MoL Type 16 barbed military heads. All the heads are steel, except for two of the Type 16s which have carbon steel barbs forge welded to wrought iron sockets. ______________ Keep your eyes on Tods YouTube channel to see these being used very soon. Also, can you spot the one major difference between these and "normal" arrows?
