    Received a dozen tapered shafts from them today. I'm just learning some of the ends and outs on making and shooting wood arrows so what impressed me may not impress you. Ordered their 50-54 and first thing of course was to eye check to see how straight they were. All but one looked really...

    I read an article or an ad a while back, a week or so, about a carbon arrow that has the appearance of being a footed wooden shaft. For the life of me I can't remember the ad, does anyone know what I saw or am I finally going around the bend?:help:

    Gentlemen: On another thread I've noted a few comments about footing carbon arrows with aluminium tubing (cut old arrows presumably). Am acquainted with footed wooden arrows but not carbons. Can anyone explain how much footing is used? One person noted 1" for strengthening the insert area I...

    I have heard about doing this to carbon arrows to make them tougher. Can anyone fully explain this process to me? I am thinking about trying it just to see what happens.

    I've been given some rather nice off cuts of snake wood, that'll make beautiful footings for P.O.C. or Ash shafts. I'd like to know if any one has a formula for the spine of the shaft before the footing is applied, as the footing always makes the spine a little stiff. I'd like the finished...
