All Raw Shafting, Pre-Finished & Finished Arrows (by the dozen) are hand-spined, compress straightened and matched in spine and weight. All full length.


Lighter and weaker then the other woods, but still a favorite and a nice flying arrow for hunting and 3-D shooting.  Not as good for stump shooting.  It sands & straightens easily.  Cedar takes stains or dyes well.  You can get a nice fine line crest on these shafts. Relatively straight grain.  Overall not as tight grain as chundoo.  Pretty good availability.  Comes from NW coast of the US.  Last but not least it has a great smell !!!
Slightly heavier and stronger than cedar, and more durable.  It has a tight grain but doesn't take oil stain as well because of the burnished finish.  Stains or leather dyes work well with this shafting.  Straightens with the compression method using a shaft tamer or ace roller.  Similiar flight characteristics to cedar.  Makes a good hunting, 3-D, and stumping arrow.  This shafting is in the pine family.  It comes from British Columbia, Canada in the high elevation areas on the northern slopes.  
This shafting is stronger and heavier than cedar.  It takes oil and alcohol stains well.  It sands nice for a smooth finish.  The grain structure is not quite as tight as cedar and chundoo.  For a hardwood it straightens easily with a shaft tamer or an ace roller.  Makes a nice arrow as a more economical price.  This makes a good hunting, 3-D, or stumping arrow.  It may have some grain runout but it does not affect durability.  It is in the hardwood family and comes from the Eastern United states.
Ramin (limited availability)
This is a very durable, but is the heaviest of the shafting.  It makes a great hunting arrow. Due to the weight, it has great penetration ability.  This wood also makes a great stumping arrow, because of its toughness, it will really take a beating.  Not the best for 3-D shooting because of the heavier weight.  Sands and stains easily.  A little more difficult to get a fine crest on.  It is also a little more difficult to straighten.  Not easy to point and nock taper with the hand held tools, better to use a grinding method.  It does not have normal straight grain like cedar or chundoo.  It has an interlocking grain due to coming from a tropical climate.  This wood comes from Asia.  
Maple (limited availability)
This shafting is very durable but quite heavy.  Makes a good hunting and roving arrow.  Not as good for 3-D arrows because of the weight.  Cannot be straightened well with the compression method.  Must be hand straightened or by using the heat method.  It has a very smooth finish and will stain well.  A bit hard to sand but they are already smooth.  It has a looser grain structure similar to poplar.  Difficult to point or nock taper with the hand held tools, better to use a grinding method.  It may be even harder then the ramin wood.  Comes from various areas in the U.S.
Highland Pine (limited availability)
This wood is very similar to the Chundoo.  It is a slightly lower grade then the chundoo, which is reflected in the price.  It still makes a nice arrow and has all the properties of the chundoo.    It is as durable as the chundoo.  Some shafts may have a slight discoloration that is in the wood but it  does not affect the flight or durability.  This wood also comes from a high elevation in British Columbia on its northern slopes.
