These are the nicest shafts I've seen. I easily bare shaft tuned 3 different weights for perfect arrow flight just by adjusting the shaft length and tip weight. (81/2, 9, and 91/2 grains per pound of bow weight) This actually gives me a choice of which arrow weight I want to use.

They are tough shafts, they look good, I like the smooth finish and I love the fact that they say "Made in USA". The price is right too.

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!!!!

    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:

            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.

            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.

            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.

                  Comments about Traditional Only® Carbon Shafts:

                  I shoot a While Wolf Stillhunter longbow made by Tony Semenuk. It is 66 inches, 45# at 28" draw length, which is my draw length. I shoot with a fast flight string. This is an amazing bow.

                  These shafts shoot great and just work with my bow unlike anything else I have tried. The finished is beautiful. I couldn't believe they were not real wood when I opened the box. I cut mine to 30 3/4" and bare shaft tested. They fly like darts. I shoot the 90s at 8.0 GPI. I fletched with three 5" feathers. I didn't use arrow wraps.

                  I cannot say enough about how great these shafts are. The nocks are consistent and clip onto the string with the same tension from arrow to arrow. They all fly perfectly and fly really fast off from the bow. I shoot off the shelf.

                  I tried to the Carbon Express Heritage arrows as I wanted a heavier hunting arrow. After a few weeks of shooting about 70 - 100 shots every other day, they started to fly crazy. I started missing the target even at 15 yards. Finally three shafts broke and I had my brother (30 years of dedicated bowhunting experience) look at them. He noticed stress spots up and down the shaft. He had never seen anything like it. Check out my review of them :>(

                  So I am going back to the Tradition Only 90s. I believe the 8.0 GPI with 125 grain G5 Strikers will be perfectly fine for whitetail hunting. These shafts just fly so perfectly, are completely consistent, and look great, I will not shoot anything else with this bow. They just seem to group and I trust them. And when shooting at a deer, that trust goes a long long way. These just work as well as I think an arrow can work. Well done Three Rivers! These are a great product.

                    These arrows look great, have a consistent spine and are very easy to tune. I have noticed that arrows with inconsistent spine will cause some arrows to fishtail when they leave the bow while others fly straight. Not so with Traditional Only. Every arrow flew like a dart. I look forward to a great year of hunting and target/stump shooting with them.
