        Comments about Ace Spine-Master Spine Tester:

        This is the least expensive spine tester on the market, but it's still very accurate and reliable. Rather than mount mine on the wall, I made a stand out of plywood and 1/2 oak that allows me to set it up level on my workbench.

        If you shoot wood, a spine gauge is almost a must-have, as it will help you to select the best arrows to match your bow, as well as give you a good idea of which suppliers do the best job of spining the arrows they sell. (3Rivers shafts are right on the money, but I just received a batch of "40-45" shafts from an Ebay seller that measured 33-48!)

            Quality material and workmanship. Easy to set up, with good instrcutions. I was impressed when I first saw it as I kept thinking this is not the same as in the picture of 3 Rivers catalog. In the catalog it looks like plastic but it is all metal. Pleasantly surprised! I like that it hangs on the wall out of the way but easy enough to reach for it when you need it.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Always good service and prompt delivery!

              Comments about Ace Spine-Master Spine Tester:

              For those making your own wooden arrows, this is a must. It's important to group your arrows according to pounds of spine, at least within +-5#, so your shots remain consistent (f you have a big discrepancy between arrows, how the arrows deflect off your bow will cause a lot of frustration, as you are constantly having to change your aim, being that everything else is the same ;).

              When I re-measure the same arrow shaft (make sure the grain of the wood is vertical, not horizontal), it sometimes gives me a different reading of +-2#--personally, that's accurate enough. And that brings me to perhaps the downside of using this spine-tester: make sure you are reading it consistently from the same angle.

              I conveniently mounted it behind the spare room's door, so it wouldn't be an eye-sore; otherwise it would make a great conversation piece!

                          The Ace spine tester is easy to hang on the wall, easy to zero, easy to use, and the measurements are very repeatable. As an occasional wood arrow maker I can't imagine a better spine tester.

                            This is the one tool I should of bought years ago.
                            It's really opened my eyes to the variability of some of the shafts I've bought in the past,,,and why I wasn't always getting the consistancy I should of.

                              Spine testers are generally on the expensive side (I guess it's a quantity and demand issue), however this is a high quality and comparatively low priced alternative that does the job well. Nicely constructed and easy to use. A must have for anyone who is making their own arrows, particularly if your creating them from billets. I'm perpetually amazed how the same board can yield such radically differently spined shafts.

                                I just received mine from 3Rivers and was very impressed by the quality. Most of my archery tools seem over priced but not this one. I have it mounted on an attractive wood backing and clamp the backing in my vice when needed. The only negative is now I know that all my 40-45# spined arrows should have been grouped 45-50#s or more. My supplier should do a better job of grouping the shafts. Dale, are you listening?
