Spruce shafts 5/16 make for a brilliant wood when making arrows, being low weight it makes for a first choice with many archers and is very popular in Europe. Well known for their high strength to weight ratio, the combination makes for higher arrow speed especially on longer distances compared to the heavier *cedar and pine shafts. (*10% heavier in some cases).

  • 5/16” diameter.
  • -/25 – 40/45 (on rare occasion 45+ please ask).
  • Within 30 grains.
  • Sold by the dozen.

*Official word from the suppliers: All 5/16 spruce shafts remain low of stock as worldwide demand has increased considerably. Also the higher spines of 35/40 & 40/45 remain low at source due to a range of environmental factors in the growing of the trees and the processing. We have these on a constant restock in an effort to keep up with demand.

One thought on “Spruce Shafts 5/16

  1. I bought 2 dozen of these shafts, it was obvious to me that a lot of care had been taken with the grading and weight matching. I have made up 14 arrows which are all coming out around 432grn, the shafts are straight and a few of them that have buried themselves into butt braces and trees and have stood up well. I use the same arrows, full length in both of my bows (35lb take down and a 45lb AFB), they fly well with 4 inch fletchings..I shall buy more when I need them.
