    I purchased these arrows to save time in making my hunting arrows for the 2007-2008 season. Once I found the spine I needed they grouped well and bare shaft tested like darts ie straight in. I bagged an Ohio 8 pt. with this shaft and a Wensel Woodman on the business end of the arrow. I can add my own cresting, or arrow wraps and my own fletch so they are still very personal, but the hard work of staining and sealing is done by 3Rivers. Also, the nock end is already tapered. I liked the nock end prep that is done and the nocks fit easily. These are the berries and the price is super.

    These were my first try at wood shafts, and I was pleased with the quality and straightness, but very disappointed with how flimsy the shafts were. I had 3 of them break at target impact(foam box target) while trying to bare shaft tune them at 10 yards. I shoot a Saxon American longbow, 50# @ 28" and bought the 45/50# spine shafts since I usually draw a little under 28". I thought these would work fine with 125gr points, but they shot way under-spined with nock way to the left of the point at target impact. I cut them as short as I could and they still were under spined. I then cut one of the shafts to 28.5" and shot it out of my old 35# Bear fiberglass bow, and the bare shaft shot straight and did not break on target impact. Could it be possible that I got a batch of shafts that were mis-labeled? Does the 45/50# rating really mean what is says, or do I need insider knowledge to know that I should have purchased shafts with a higher poundage rating? Anyway, I feel like I wasted a good chunk of money on these, so be very careful what poundage you select. I doubt that I will try wood again, unless I can test shoot a shaft before buying. Looks like its back to aluminum.

    Comments about 3Rivers Pre-Finished Wood Shafts:

    This was my first experience with any type of "pre-finished" shafts. I really like all the options you have when ordering. I chose to have the nocks installed and I did the rest. If your're looking for a basic shaft/arrow that looks ok, is straight, and shoots well, this is a great option to save a few bucks as opposed to buying a dozen custom arrows.

      Comments about 3Rivers Pre-Finished Wood Shafts:

      I shoot about three times a week, the arrows are very well crafted. I had a couple of feathers come half way off but I believe it's my fault on that part as far tuning goes. Brace height and arrow spine should have gone one spine section up. All in all these arrows are excellent gonna have to get me another set or even try to make some myself. Thanks three rivers!

      Comments about 3Rivers Pre-Finished Wood Shafts:

      Everything about the arrows is great except the finish. It started to crack and peel. Arrows had not been soaked in the rain or left in a damp room. Even the arrows that were never shot exhibited this.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Great service as usual

          Over-all I am pleased with the arrows. So far the ones I have finished shoot very well. Only small complaint is that several of the dozen had rough finishes, so I sanded and re-stained before fletching. Good value for the cost!

            These shafts were purchased for primarily competing in traditional recurve barebow events, and in the early stages , they have not disappointed. They arrived well-finished, straight and very close to equal in weight. The pre-finished shafts saved a huge amount of final finishing, i.e., cutting to length, adding points, and adding fletching. They were very easy to tune, and shoot as quietly as any arrow I've shot. Great product.

              as a fletcher myself, one cannot crest a crooked shaft. so therefore, any crested wooded shaft has to be A-Okay

                I was very pleased with the finish of the shafts, not exactly custom finish but for the price still a very nice bargain. I ordered a dozen and the weights were closely matched and they shoot consistently.

                Comments about 3Rivers Pre-Finished Wood Shafts:

                Frankly I was pleasently surprised at the quality and accuracy of these pre-finished shafts. They did much better than I have come to expect from bought shafting. Of course it could be thatI have finally found shafts that my bow enjoys shooting.
                In any case the only thing about these shafts that was a disappointment was tha fact that they are already stained(painted) and sealed as i prefer to do that job myself.
                But as far as accuracy and preformance It would take a perfect shaft that hits the center of bull everytime from my bow to outpreform these 3 River shafts
