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

Tolerance too tight

I bought this to taper arrows sold in my booth at medieval events. It has the heft and solid construction of a good tool. But the opening in each size guide is too tight for the labeled shaft size if the shaft has been dipped in water base sealer or paint.

I know, from years as a furniture refinisher that one coat of water base finish is as thick as 3 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. So I have to do 5/16 shafts in the 11/32 guide, and 11/32 shafts in the 23/64 guide. I bought the optional 1/4 guide for youth arrows but that was a waste because I will have to use the 5/16 guide. Unfortunately there is nothing bigger than the 23/64 guide to accept 23/64 shafts.

One solution would be to sell one size larger than 23/64 to accommodate 23/64 shafts that are finished with water base sealers or paint.

    Comments about Tru-Center V2 Taper Tool Complete:

    Just used this today and it is better than the original tool I have had for years
    The original taper tool still works but the new V2 is sharper and leaves a straight smooth cut, easier than the other. Taper is straight and points fit perfectly

                  Comments about Tru-Center V2 Taper Tool Complete:

                  This taper tool is great, so much better than the little purple one, which didnt taper right in the first place, and broke after about 6 arrows. Got this one in and worked great, the only reason i didnt give 5 stars is that the bore is pretty tight, if you have any clear coat on the shaft, it might not fit, but simple fix for 5/16 or 11/32, you just use the attachment for the next size up, and its perfect, only problem is if you are using anything bigger than 11/32 you should taper before clear coating.

                        The best taper tool I've ever used. It's the only one that has ever performed so well on harder woods like laminated birch. I love the double screw hold down for the blades. It keeps them from flexing up when starting the taper.

                            Very well made and easily adapts to different size shafts. Snug fit on bushings make for an accurate cut. I chuck in my lathe at a slow speed when doing more than a couple of shafts and can cut them in a few seconds that way.

                                  Just getting in to archery, I was not very knowledable about wood arrows. I purchased my first set of 12 fred bear arrows and they came without the points installed and no tapers. So after hunting around, this seemed to be the best tool for me since I will only be tapering 12 arrows at a time, maybe a few times a year. This tool is very easy to use and does an excellent job of putting a perfect taper on my arrows in a matter of seconds. I thought it was going to be a lot harder and take longer to do. If you can sharpen a pencil then you can use this tool. It is nice to be able to taper the nock end too if I ever need to. 3Rivers was super fast at shipping out my order. Very pleased. I ordered extra blades just in case but I imagine the blade that comes on it will last quite a while.
