A general rule that I use: It is between two and ten times more work to get a graphic to look the way you think it should appear in a text or paper than it is to just get some graphic or some calculation. To get the "exact graph" you want may double or quadruple that rule. I suspect you are seeing that rule in action now.

After looking at your picture and seeing that each of the curves is fairly straight prior to where you want the arrow, what I would do is take the last two points in each of your lists, write a small function that uses those two points to generates Arrowheads[] with the correct position, direction and length and then combine the graphic object from each of these with your original graph, possibly using Show[].
