Weight matched, rear tapered, Wood arrow shafts made from German Spruce
Premium weight matched rear tapered wood shafts sold in sets of 12 shafts (approx +/-14gn). Made from high-quality German spruce and rolled multiple times for perfectly round wood shafts.
Rear tapered shafts are perfect for any traditional bow and give faster arrow speeds with lighter GPI (grains per inch). Improved strength to weight ratio and reduces drag while producing a higher front-of-centre balance with an equivalent overall weight

Ancient archers knew that the arrow had better performance by tapering the rear of the shaft and maintaining a bigger diameter at the point end. These wooden shafts will make arrows to suit all forms of traditional archery.
Please note we try and supply shafts as straight as possible, but all wood arrows shafts need some work on straightening. They aren't manufactured straight, and they are a natural product, unlike carbon arrows!
There are many ways to make the wood shafts straight and lots of videos. Here are just one of the ways you can do it.
