      I am using the new version of the Tru-Centre Taper tool (V2), I was a little worried that these pencil sharpener type tools would struggle on the Douglas Fir but was pleasantly surprised that it shaved beautifully, no gouging as some had reported on harder woods.

      This thing is idiot proof (thankfully) and I just used a light pressure to shave what looks like to my beginners eye as a perfect taper. I believe that this version fixed a number of issues experienced on the original tool.

      It took me around 30 seconds per arrow per taper and again I would stress that a light pressure is all that is needed.

      This is a fantastic tool for sure, I used a silicon lubricant spray on the O-rings as opposed to Vaseline as recommended. I would recommend this above Vas or some other grease that is not petroleum based for greater longevity of the o-rings

      I had the original Taper tool, which was actually handy (and I still use it sometimes) for the point side, but the nock end just plain sucked.

      I was looking forward to trying this version, and the build quality of it is utterly fantastic. However, the tolerances are so tight, that some 23/64 shafts that I also bought from 3 rivers didn't fit, and there is no size up to move into. I realize that this is not the fault of the taper tool, technically, since the shafts are wood, and likely prone to slight swelling or deformation due to humidity and wood grain.

      But, then again, this is for tapering wood, right? In my opinion, they should have left a little more slack. However, if you can get an extra 23/64, and simply drill it out a little, that would probably be a fine solution.

      But, as for me, I still like the cheap disposable taper tools. They seem to work well.

                      I've heard a lot of people say to avoid the "pencil sharpener" type taper tools. However, I don't mass produce arrows and find this tool very efficient. It's well-made,light weight, and very durable. Plus I can carry it with me in the field. It shaves consistent and perfect tapers. The interchangeable shaft guides are a nice feature too. I've even used it on bamboo.

                        Ready to use straight out of the box, just put your shaft size collet on and taper away.
                        Set taper length, hard to mess up if your shaft is straight.

                                  Hand held so don't need machine or electricity
                                  Will use at home and carry when roving
                                  Would be better if the guides were size labeled so self engraving is advised or don't lose the color chart sent in package

                                  Thought the old style taper tool was good, this tool needs no adjustment at all! makes perfect nocks and points and real easy to use. Blades should last a long time when using on soft woods, plus quick to change. This is a fine taper tool that will be around for a long time.

                                  Simple and effective, works great. I chucked it into my wood lathe at low speed (~60 rpm) and tapered 24 shafts in 10 minutes.
