    Im looking at getting some P O C wood shafts,I shoot a Bear Grizzly
    recurve @ 50 lb draw,what would you recomend for spine and arrow size.Im looking at building these myself my current arrow leaght
    is 30 3/4" on a carbon shaft 600 spine

      A:

      It would depend upon the weight of the bow at your draw length as well as the point weight. So it would be a different recommendation if the bow is 50# @ 28" with 125 grain point vs 55# @ 30" with a 150 grain point. You can look at our arrow charts here: http://www.3riversarchery.com/pdf/ArrowCharts.pdf

  • Q:

    ABOUT 40 YEARS AGO I ORDERED SOME 5/16 IN (100LB POC SHAFTS) IS THAT POSSIBLE? I THINK I BOUGHT ABOUT 200 AT THE TIME AND HAVE BEEN SHOOTING AND HUNTING WITH THEM EVER SINCE USING COMPOUND BOWS. I STILL HAVE ABOUT 25 UNFINISHED SHAFTS THAT ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION.

      A:

      It's pretty doubtful that you could find 100# spine POC in 5/16 today. You can find them in 11/32 from time to time.

      A:

      What is the actual question?
      5/16th shafts would normally only rate up to a 45 lb long bow I've had one
      shatter on release from a 50 lb bow I have no idea about shooting them from
      a compound the center shot and two part acceleration would probably mean
      you could use them with a higher poundage.

  • Q:

    Just got in my Port Orford Cedar wood shafts. Do I need to sand these before applying my sealer or are they already ready to go? Also after the sealer do I need to do additional sanding? Lastly what glue is recomended for glue on nocks and glue on points. Im using Bohning fletch lac and fletch tite glue for fletching.

      A:

      I would recommend sanding before applying the sealer. Sometimes there can be sap on the wood and it needs to be removed before applying the sealer. As far as additional sanding, it may not be required, but I would recommend it. You will get a much better sealed arrow and a better looking arrow by spending more time preparing the shafts. It's a good idea to stick with fletch-tite when using the bohning products.

      A:

      I have done about 50 dozen arrows.
      I recommend that you bevel the ends first, then dip the arrows in sealer
      from the point end and hang them to dry for a few hours-you don't need to
      sand them first.
      After they are dry, I recommend that you quickly sand them with some steel
      wool, 00 gauge. It only takes about 30 seconds per shaft, and roughs up the
      coat a little. The dip the arrows a second time. (The sanding in between
      makes the second coat adhere better.) Hang and let dry overnight before
      fletching. These arrows are then incredibly durable, even if they get lost
      in the ground for a couple of months.
      Yours,

      A:

      In my experience the shafts are ready to go. I have not sanded them prior to sealing and the finish is excellent. I also use fletch tite for my nocks. This last time I assembled my arrows I used the double sided adhesive fletch tape with very good results and more time savings to boot.

      A:

      It's always a good idea to lightly sand wooden shafts. You can use a 220 grit. You shouldn't have to sand after the sealer is applied, but "play this by ear". If the shafts feel rough, do a light sand and possibly apply another coat of sealer.
      Gorilla makes a "Super Glue" type glue that's "rubberized". It has a blue cap. It dries quickly, and it doesn't expand like other Gorilla glues. This product is great for field repairs to replace tips. I use it to attach booth nocks and tips.
      Hope this helps.

      A:

      For simply sealing, you wouldn't need to go through that step unless there
      are any rough spots or splinters sticking out of the shaft. For staining, I
      always sand briefly with 240 grit just to have the same texture throughout
      the shaft. Also, one thing I always do is to rub the shaft down with
      lacquer thinner applied to a paper towel prior to dipping in the fletch
      lac. This will help remove any dust, dirt, sawdust, or sap from the shafts
      and ensure they're clean. The paper towel will also catch if there are any
      splinters or areas that need sanding.
      You don't need to sand after applying the fletch-lac, with the exception of
      the point taper (where the point is glued on). Simply glue the feathers and
      nocks on over the sealer. For nocks, use your fletch-tite - it is
      compatible with fletch-lac. For points, use a hot melting glue like
      ferr-l-tite. Be sure the point taper is not covered with sealer, as it
      won't allow the hot melt glue to bond as tightly. If you do dip the point
      taper in the sealer, be sure to sand it off and rough up the surface of the
      wood so the hot melt glue has a good surface to bind to. Good luck!

      A:

      How much below 35 lbs.? Try 5/16" 30-35lb. shafts. Bare shaft tune your arrows. If these are still too stiff at full length, use heavier tips. If they are too week, cut the shafts down in 1/4" increments.
      See 3 Rivers tuning guide for more information on bare shaft tuning: http://www.3riversarchery.com/pdf/2011ShaftTuningChart.pdf

    Hello there, I have a 50# recurve bow. If i where to get 50-55# 11/32nd spined shafts, what grain of a point would you recommend me get to make the arrow fly true? Or does it really matter?

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      With a recurve add 10# to spine weight. So you will want 60# shafts. With that weight of a bow you will probably want 125grain points.

      A:

      3Rivers has a great on-line tool to match the bow to the arrows. You input the parameters of the bow on the left side of the page, and the parameters of the arrow on the right side, and it will calculate how well your arrows match your bow. You can then change the variables of the arrow parameters, such as length, spine, tip weight, etc until you have an arrow configuration that matches your bow, and you. Check out http://www.3riversarchery.com/spinecalculator.asp
      It works really well for me. My arrows fly so much better now that I used this tool to solve my arrow/bow mis-match.

      As a very general answer, 100 grain or 125 grain should do fine. You may want to try the 125 grain.

      A:

      If you’re not trying to drive nails at 40 yards, you shouldn’t have a problem with decent arrow flight anywhere between 125-145 grains.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Without knowing your draw length it is not possible to tell what weight point will make the arrows fly the best. If your draw is close to 28", more than likely a weight close to 125 grains will work.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I would pick the point first then determine the spine as you want to make
      sure your point is heavy enough to have an adequate front of center balance
      point. http://www.3riversarchery.com/pdf/ArrowCharts.pdf this is the link
      to the spine chart. you also need to know the length of arrow. If you were
      going to make a 28" arrow you would want 125 grain heads to get you in the
      ball park with your bow. However if your bow is not a center shot or cut
      past center you might lighten the spine slightly or increase point weight.
      I use 125 grain points on a 31" POC arrow with a 55-60 lb spine for my 50lb
      bows.

      I have a very similar (55#) recurve and have had very good results with
      cedar shafts spined 5 lbs heavier (60#) and 125 grain heads. Reckon you
      could go + or - 25 grains with no problem.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Start by saying nice bow, and good choice! A 60 pound pull is the same in all recurve or longbows you are matching the 60 pound spine weight to that of pull weight. When they select shafting they use a range so it may be possible for a arrow or two to be underpinned and the same in the overs pined direction. So I build my arrows, fly my arrows and make a small hash mark system to mark my arrows as to witch ones fly the best. These are saved for hunting the others for target. Nice shaft I do recommend but spend some time hand straightening prior to lacquering and finishing.

      I've had great results with the PO cedar shafts on my 55 pound longbow and

      A:

      I would use 65# - 70# depending on the weight of the point / broadhead that
      you want to use.
      I am assuming that your shafts would be 30" to 31" at the beginning of the
      point taper.
      If your shafts are overly long or you use a point over 200 gr. You might
      need more spine.
