The heart and soul of any arrow is in its shaft, and no material embodies spirit, beauty and tradition like wood. I have selected Surewood Fir and Hildebrand Sitka Spruce as my shafts of choice because of their consistent high quality and excellent shooting characteristics. These qualities are enhanced by a ten inch taper on the fletch end of the shaft. Tapering the shaft lightens the tail of the arrow which improves recovery from paradox and moves the center of gravity forward, greatly improving stability.
After tapering, the shafts are hand spined and sorted into true five pound or less groups and weight matched to within 10 grains per dozen shafts. The shafts are stained, crown dipped, crested, finished, fletched and transformed into arrows in accordance with the customer’s desires.
All shafts are carefully selected for natural straightness and good grain, then tapered, hand spined, weighed and matched. The nock and point tapers are true and accurate. My arrow finish is smooth, clean, waterproof, tough and resists target burn. American produced Trueflight fletching is consistently and securely installed using Bitzenburger jigs. Whether made fancy or plain, I take no shortcuts in crafting my arrows and use only the best components available.
