I'm seeing one or two post on facebook about nodeless bamboo for arrow shafts. They seem to originate in Borneo. Just wondered if anyone had any experience of using them?
I alwas thought that bamboo would be a great arrow shaft but the price and diameter variations scare me off.
I am expecting a bamboo shaft to be parallel, consistent diameter, and be able to be nock and point tapered like cedar or similiar. That doesn't seem to be the case.
I had ordered some sets from a local dealer over the last years. Well, more or less local, about 500mi.My experience with Chinese bamboo shafting is that it's worse consistency and much heavier than the lowest grade of wood shaft.
Think ordering 120 shafts to make 12, not economical with shipping how it is.
These could be interesting if they offer closer matches.
