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:

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.

            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.

            Overall I'm pleased with the shafting sold by 3R
            Today 02/08/13 I bare shaft tested my latest batch. 50 55# spine weight)
            and those with the second to heavist and heavest FP seem to fly best from my bow. I left the shafts full length and they measure A tad over 31 3/8" from BOP with an overall length of almost 33"
            for the majority and the rest were durn close to that final measurement.
