Spruce wood shafting has a long tradition and a rich history in arrow making because it has excellent flight properties. This type of wooden shaft is particularly light in mass weight but it recovers quickly from the shot. Thus, the spruce wood stock is particularly suitable for use in 3D tournaments and for normal informal target shooting as well. Due to the lower arrow mass weight you get faster arrow speeds and flatter trajectories for more accurate shooting and, because of its excellent grain structure and inherent straightness, spruce wood shafts provide the perfect foundation for making the best wooden arrows.
Because wood is a natural product, the wooden shafts differ from each other, in inner and outer characteristics mostly but but barely in diameter. For example, not all shafts are equally as straight, or stiff or heavy. The spine size is also not always the same, because of this wooden shafts are classified and sorted into categories with a margin of 5 lbs. To produce as many equal shafts all shafts are spined, checked on tears and breaks and aligned by hand.
We deliver shafts in full length, 32 inch. For many people this is to long and the shaft will have to be shortened. For a small fee of €0,10 per shaft we will shorten your shafts to you desired length. We use a special sawing machine where we can be accurate to the millimeter.
For even better shooting results, we can sort the shafts by weight within a margin of one gram. We do this in groups of maximum 12 shafts. If you want more, we will divide it into groups whose weights are as close as possible to each other.
