        Comments about 3Rivers Alcohol Based Arrow Stain:

        Although this stain does bleed through, you can minimize this by allowing ample drying time and wiping your shafts well before allowing them to dry. I don't stain the last ten inches of the shaft if I plan on crown dipping or cresting which also helps with bleed through. Overall, good product.

        Service and delivery comments:

        As usual, everything was shipped promptly and without errors.

          I tried this stain for the first time and it is the BEST. I've used a water based stain for 20 yrs. I got the southern pecan. Very good color and penetration. I will be using these stains from now on.

          Service and delivery the best as usual.

          Comments about 3Rivers Alcohol Based Arrow Stain:

          For several years now I have been using a stain purchased from a blackpowder supply store to stain my shafts and self bows. Stains found in big box stores are pathetically inadequate. I finally ordered the Three Rivers stain and was delighted to find the same quality, but more quantity, at a lesser price. Good on you Three Rivers! We need more colors!

              I used a clean soft cotton cloth to rub the stain into the shaft. It dried quickly and gave a beautiful deep color. 3Rivers shipped my order quickly and I received everything in good order. I highly recommend 3Rivers Archery to anyone.

                Comments about 3Rivers Alcohol Based Arrow Stain:

                I bought the Harvest Gold stain and am very pleased with it. The wood shafts came out much better than I expected. I was apprehensive at first after reading online that when it comes to alcohol-based stains, it is not recommended to use a rag or brush to apply them. Instead, most recommend a spray or dip application, neither of which I had. But I used one of those sponge-like cloths sold in the painting section of a big-box hardware store, and it worked out great. I also read that alcohol based stains can turn out a bit splotchy because of their quick drying characteristics, but the Harvest Gold stain came out really well, no splotchiness at all. The stain came out very even throughout the length of the shaft on the dozen shafts I had, with plenty of stain left over for lots more shafts. This stain does dry very quickly, but I thought that was a plus, as it allowed me to apply a poly-based wood sealant over it the same afternoon. I am now tempted to try other colors. I would recommend this stain to others looking for a good-looking, yellowish (Harvest Gold) stain that dries quickly.

                    I make arrows professionally and have tried dozens of different stains and lacquers. Follow the label directions and do what it says and the results are perfect! I think we have a winner ladies and gentlemen!!!

                    I've used 3 of the 5 colors and all have performed well, even better if sealed. Wear protection because if you get it on you or your clothes, it's difficult to get out. I'll definitely buy this product again!

                        Use these stains with consistent success, the only exception is the color of Harvest Gold. It varies from yellow to orange and even light red, but rarely approaches gold.

                          This stuff is awesome! Very even coloring,penetrates super fast.Dry time is almost nothing. Better make sure to wear latex gloves or your finger will match your arrows for a few days.

                            These are great stains that really penetrate nicely into the wood. I would recommend wearing rubber gloves when applying as it will stain your hands and is hard to come off. I also recommend using the Pro-dipper with the Speed Coat gaskets. This will pull the excess stain off the shaft and back in the tube saving you money. The shafts also dry faster saving you time.
