I was a little disappointed because these shafts don't take stain and tung oil well. Also, the overall diameter was a little bigger than 11/32" which made it a little difficult to taper the nocks and points. One great benefit is that I didn't have to straighten them!

I used these shafts to make 24" arrows for a short indian style bow that I made. I had heard that sitka spruce is one of the most durable woods to use for arrow making but I did not find it as durable as some birch arrows that I had made previously. Also, with the 24" arrow length and 125 grain points, the finished physical weight was about 480 grains. I would prefer it if my hunting arrows weighed 600-700 grains

    Comments about Sitka Spruce:

    I make all kinds of arrows and this wood is the best for any of my arrows. i used these shafts for my 60 pound longbow and they work great! if you use the walnut stain and green fletchings cut in the traditional form they will make arrows that like something from a video game which i like. i did a test with theis shaft and compared it to other wood shafts and this wood is stronger than the others and won't break as easily. you can use these arrow shafts for anything from target shooting to stump shooting to competitions to hunting! i got my first deer with these shafts and i'm glad it didn't break. i would recommend these for any begining arrow maker that would like to make long lasting arrows.

    Comments about Sitka Spruce:

    I will use the sitka spruce dowels (arrows when finished)for both hunting and target practice chiefly for target practice and use the best of the bunch for hunting.
    I am somewhat pleased with the 3 Rivers shafts, however four broke when bare shaft testing. However two fly far nock right the rest are POA
    so I suppose six outa twelve an't too bad.

        I recently ordered these and i can say that these are the straightest shafts I've seen. There was minimal straightening required and at 60-65 spine i was surprised at how light the wood was.

          Very unhappy with the consistence .The good ones are very good . you throw to many out so they are not cost effective . but i still think the are the best woods for target work.

              Comments about Sitka Spruce:

              Just not what I was hoping for. I was shooting POC and I was breaking them quite frequently. So I thought I would try something a little stronger. To tell you the truth I think these are weaker. They aren't as straight as POC and once straightened they don't stay. Now I'm not one to write bad reviews but I'm just giving my honest experience with these. 3Rivers were great of course. Just disappointed with the arrows.

                  I got one shaft that was 295 grains and some that were over 400 grains and everything in between. I was a little frustrated by the inconsistency; however, the shafts were straight.
