These shafts should cost more than they do. They are as straight and consistent in weight as arrows costing more. I am VERY particular about weight, finish, and component fit. These have it all and for a very good price.

I shoot the 300's at 31" with a 100 grain insert, 200 grain head, a wrap, four 4" feathers, and a point collar. They weigh an average of 650 grains and are all within 4 grains finished.

Some of the comments you will see say they break easily…not any easier than any other shaft…Use 24 hour epoxy on the inserts, spin test your points and broad heads, wipe the excess glue off by turning the shaft on a cotton rag and you will have very few problems with breakage. Also, hit the target and not the rocks!

The last thing I love is the logo removes easily with mineral spirits and a light scotch bright pad…Then they can be wrapped or dipped and crested into a beautiful wood like arrow…and you can even scotch bright the entire shaft for a flat natural finish.

Buy em and try em…I'm glad I did.

Heres the skinny on these shafts. I used the 500 and 600 shafts and have bought several dozen of each. Yes, they seem a bit more brittle than most carbon shafts, however load up the tip with heavy FOC and hit something hard, they will break, as will any carbon arrow. For the shaft manufacturer to produce a carbon shaft, keep the weight and straightness tolerance with in specific parameters, the shaft must be made a little harder (brittle), and tend to fall on the lighter side of the weight scale (grains per inch). Good luck finding a wood grain carbon shaft at exactly 7gpi or 8gpi.
The inserts have me confused. The 600 insert have an interesting flare on them. Why? all I can figure is that it makes the 9/32" shaft work with a 5/16" field tip. There are inserts available for this shaft without the funky flare, and we all know we can get 9/32" tips as well, GO FIGURE!!!!

        Love the arrows but we didn't know that there were no fletchings, only the shaft and nock. Had to pay more to get fletchings installed, bummer.

          Comments about Traditional Only® Carbon Shafts:

          I am a traditional 3D and field archer, not a hunter, so I can't say anything about these shafts value in hunting. I can say that I have bought 3 or 4 dozen Traditional Only in 400 and 500 spines, and they have never disappointed me. They are accurate, consistent, and as durable as anything else I've tried. I don't want to give 3Rivers the wrong idea, but they are such fine shafts that I almost feel a little guilty paying the price asked. They even look nice. Unless you are a very skilled archer who is capable of wringing fractions of accuracy from your gear, I don't see why you'd pay more for anything else.

              I shoot traditional 3D and field courses, I am not a hunter. I have bought 3 or 4 dozen of these shafts in 400 and 500 spine. They have never disappointed me. They fly very well and are as durable as any other carbon I've tried. They even look nice. Except for top-flight archers who are actually capable of wringing fractions of accuracy out of their gear, I can't see why anyone would pay more.

                  Comments about Traditional Only® Carbon Shafts:

                  Tuned pretty easy. Shoot out of most of my bows. 36 to 45 pounds.
                  Shoots very consistent. Love them. Just a little lighter would be nice.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Got to visit 3 rivers this winter. Jonathan and the folks I meet couldn't have been nicer. Great place and great people that know their business. But if you ever do get to go, carry lots of money!
                  Orders have always been great also.

                    I have been building wood arrows for a long time using POC shafts. This is my first experience with carbon arrows. When I have a chance to use them, I will have a better way of writing an objective review. I shoot only recurve bows and I'm anxious to try them on some Three D targets.
