WoodShaft - Cedar - Handspined - Ø 11/32" - up to 30"
When selecting the wood shafts, our 1st choice could only fall in favour of the cedar wood shafts. We looked for alternatives but did not find any other arrow material that met our requirements. The Port Orford Cedar combines many advantages like no other shaft material. The self-damping behaviour of the cedar wood shafts is much more positive and faster than with all other common arrow materials. Self-attenuation behaviour is the time it takes for a shot arrow to fly stably again from its launch. Shafts from Port Orford Cedar are not only lighter than other arrowheads but also much more true to form. Its greater elasticity keeps it straight for longer. Not for nothing did legendary archers like Fred Bear, Ben Pearson and Howard Hill shoot exclusively wooden arrows from Port Orford Cedar. We only sell shafts in A quality. all shafts are pre-spinned by the manufacturer in the USA in 5 lbs groups. Transport, temperature fluctuations and differences in air humidity can, of course, cause deviations. We are dealing here with natural material and not with homogeneous material. Who says "yes" to a wood shaft, also says "yes" to his natural characteristics.
Each Shaft is unique
Since wood is a natural product, each Shaft is unique. Apart from the standard turned diameter, the shafts differ in their appearance and their characteristics.
The grain or appearance (three rings, flames) is various for each shaft. Also, the spin value is always individual and cannot be determined exactly, therefore the shafts are only sorted into categories with a spin width of 5 lbs. In order to have shafts as even as possible, all shafts are hand spined, checked for cracks, reflex tested and aligned.
"Extra spine shafts" and "Weighing out shafts"
With the two services "Weighing out shafts" and "Extra spinning shafts", you can reduce the differences in the characteristics between the shafts.
- In the "Weigh out shafts" service, you can define the tolerance range of the weight deviation within the ordered quantity of shafts and minimize it to up to 5 grains.
- The "extra spine shafts" service also gives you the option of defining the spine tolerance range and limiting it to a maximum of 1 lb.
Shaft diameter: 11/32"
Spines: 40/45 lbs, 45/50 lbs, 50/55 lbs, 55/60 lbs or 60/65 lbs
Length: 24-30" (selectable)
If you choose the extra service "Shaft weighing" and/or "Extra Spine", please note that the shafts can only be shortened and lacquered after weighing/spinning. As wood is a natural product, there may be deviations again after shortening due to the uneven nature of the wood.
