I just finished up fletching a dozen arrows out of these shafts. I picked them up because I was looking for some a bit heavier than Port Orford cedar and something that would stay a bit straighter than the ash shafts I have been shooting. I was quite pleased when I pulled them out of the box, all were very straight with one exception and it straightened up pretty easily. Upon weighing the shafts out there was about a 30 grain difference between the heaviest and lightest so I was pretty happy with that (for a bit of recreational shooting it won't matter to me). After shooting them all a few times they group pretty consistently. As for durability I did miss the target bag with one and bounced it off the apple tree a couple yards beyond the bag with no apparent damage to the shaft. I like them well enough that I just ordered another dozen shafts to make up into a new set of hunting arrows.

Concerned about durability

I am finding, compared to cedar, I have significantly more Douglas Fir arrows blow apart on impact when stump or target shooting.

Comments about Douglas Fir Wood Shafts:

Takes stain readily, some straightening but, generally not bad for out of the box. Have not had to re-straighten so far after weeks of shooting, not to mention weather extremes. Will purchase more of these.

    Comments about Douglas Fir Wood Shafts:

    These are my go-to shafts now, when I am out of raw materials locally. They are consistent enough, and tough enough to take the beatings I give them. They may or may not measure up to some others standards, insofar as the consistency of the weight variance, but I have ordered several dozen, and get the best, most consistent shots out of my sinew backed ash bow with these shafts. The only kind of shaft that performs better, for me, is bamboo, and they are a LOT more work. I will run these until/unless someone can prove to me there is something better off my bows.

    Comments about Douglas Fir Wood Shafts:

    No problems with the shafts. They're sturdy. I have shot 8 arrows maybe 500x in the past 3 weeks. I have not had one break yet. I do have inconsistent shots, but I'm a begginer so it could be me and not the shafts. I probably need to try some different shafts to make sure.

    Comments about Douglas Fir Wood Shafts:

    very nice looking grain. Much nicer looking then the P.O.C. shafts. They take stain well. My only complaint, they seem to break when trying to straighten them. I haven't had this problem with P.O.C. shafts.

      Comments about Douglas Fir Wood Shafts:

      great quality shafting..very easy to straighten...(when neccesary) and a bit stronger than Port Orford. I like them also because Douglas Fir trees are abundant where I bowhunt for Elk and Mule Deer...somehow this is a really cool connection for me .

      I have been using these both parallel and tapered for thirty years...11/32 & 23/64" ...great hunting and target arrows...many harvests with them...I have some that have lasted 25 years...I shoot the old ones every once in a while just for fun.

      they take stain & finish well ...my favorite shaft wood for sure.

        Upon arrival the first thing I did was check for straightness. Perfect!!!. Can't wait to see how they fly! Packaging could have been a little more protective, but they arrived just fine.

          Used these shafts for a 3d comp, worked great i am very happy with them. It is very hard to find consistant shafts in heavy spines.

              Shafts were as described needed a little sanding to get totally smooth to my standards, and accepted stain well. Now time to put the rest of the parts together.
