    Can arrow shaft be painted for easier sighting in field?
    Black carbon shaft and black field target is very hard to distinguish where the arrow hit.
    Any recommendations on color and type of paint?

    Shoot Maxima Reds
    Otherwise painting would be a bad idea, it would be very variable for weight

                doesn't help at all, miss the target is easy to tell, its when black shaft hits the black region on target face and we shoot at an angle at most field targets, so without a say shiny silver shaft, all I can see is the butt/fletching appear to be in the yellow, then when I walk up to it to score, it turns out to be a 3.

                  Of course you can paint them and the total mass of dried spray paint is far less than wraps. Just use epoxy primer and quality top coat (British paints etc..). You may have to change the glue you use as some won't adhere to the paint. Super glue works well, so does duco adhesive, but glues like saunders NPV just won't take. The easiest way to set your arrows up is to drill a dozen holes the same size of your arrows into a piece of 4x2 and push all the arrows through to the same position. If you clamp the 4 x 2 and push the arrows up to a hard edge you simply role the arrows between each pass. You'll end up with a nice clean edge and the painted area will be the same length on each one.

                        It won't change that arrow score, but it means you can adjust your sight for your next arrow.
