Description
Spruce shafts have an important history and are excellently suited for the market of the 3 D archers. They are about 10% lighter than usual cedar shafts and have outstanding flight characteristics. Due to the lighter ballistics and the higher arrow speed it is possible to achieve clear advantages compared to the considerably heavier cedar and pine shafts, especially on longer distances.


->>----- A note regarding wooden arrow shaft quality ----->


We are very fussy about our wooden shafts, and are constantly trying to find better sources. Our stock wooden shafts come from the top manufacturers in the USA and Europe and are used extensively around the world. For a stock shaft, they are as good as they come.


But… this doesn't mean they are perfect. In fact, the quality varies from batch to batch. Some batches are excellent. Sometimes not. The shafts are supplied to us without any guarantee of conformity and therefore we do not offer any guarantee of conformity to you.


Simply put, they are raw materials and we are a re-seller. It is a fact that the quality varies and it should be expected. That is the nature of the product.


I say this not to discourage you from buying our shafts. I want you to buy our shafts! They are the best! I'm saying this to give you realistic expectations of what it is we are selling.


For most archers, stock shafts are fine. But if you require a perfectly matched set of shafts for the ultimate set of arrows then the shafts need to be selected by hand. Or you buy additional shafts and keep the best for your tournament arrows and the rest for your practice arrows. If you are serious about your arrows, that's how it is done.


Our pricing does not include hand selection and we currently do not offer this service for online sales. We still accept returns for wooden shafts.


If you are not happy with them, just send them back for a refund! But we do not refund any postage costs in relation to wooden arrow shafts, and we would only accept the return of all of the shafts ordered, not just the ones you don't want! :-)

Pretty good overall

I ordered 6 of these shafts about 3 weeks ago , 5 were very durable however the 6th constantly broke. Also, it does not say it in the description but the shafts are 32" long.
Review by Mathew
12 out 15 are good to shoot...
(Posted on 10/10/2017)
Just bought some 11/32 and out of 15 shafts 3 have significant faults. One has a decent gouge right in the centre of the shaft and would most certainly shatter under force... The remaining dozen that appear intact are well sanded and straight and will hopefully make a good arrow but these are not as good or consistent as the 5/16s I'd bought previously so a couple stars down...

Pleasantly surprised!

First time I ordered wooden shafts from MERLIN, very pleasantly surprised at the quality of these shafts, after weight matching they varied only from
33 to 36 in one dozen, PRETTY GOOD!

Review by Johannes
Good quality...
(Posted on 14/05/2017)
Very springy compared to POC. Bought a batch of 25# spine to accompany a new 30# horse bow and can't fault the shafts for grain, weight or colour. They accommodate for the paradox nicely in flexibility and still feel robust. The grain comes up nicely under a stain and or natural oils. They're more fibrous than POC to taper so it may be worth checking on the points from time to time for small fibres splitting away but a gentle sanding will render the nape quite smooth when first fitting... I prefer the POC as standard but these still fly!

Review by martin
Nice...

I bought ten of these as a first attempt at making my own arrows. They were all as near dead straight as makes no difference and I've had no problems with them in use.
Review by Martin
Light & strong - what more do you need?
(Posted on 25/12/2015)
I have been searching for different shafts to the PoC ones which seem to break on a very regular basis. I tried pine, but found them too heavy and inflexible. So I bought a bunch of the German spruce - and was amazed right from the get-go. Lighter and seriously tough - haven't managed to break one yet and I have 24 in operation now for target and field. Despite hitting some trees full-on.
Heartily recommended

Review by David
Worth it
(Posted on 25/01/2015)
I never write a review for anything, but for this I made an exception. Shot these at 1/2 inch plywood (Yes, I may have been a little drunk from the night before) and I still have a perfect set of 12 arrows. I used the brass screw points and the penetrated through without any damage.

A bit of grain runoff on these as well, but doesn't really affect the durability.
Review by MoS
Good for price
(Posted on 12/01/2015)
Found these shafts to be consistently straight, and exactly 5/16 wide. Spine seems fairly consistent too.

2 flaws stopped these getting 5stars

1. The stock shafts vary in length by over an inch, a problem if you have a very long draw are are shooting overly long shafts to try and match spine.

2. One of the shafts had a knot in it and broke straight away

Will still buy more though and would recommend
Review by Mark
Excellent

These arrow shafts are absolutely amazing! I have tried the POC and Pine shafts from merlin and in my opinion Spruce are the best! They are light and extremely durable! They've survived being shot into trees many times! I find they shoot best with 5" feathers (sadly bearpaw are no longer stocked) and the 3D Steel Screw-On Points!

Great value for money. Better if you a give it a thin coat of yacht varnish gives you all weather protection. And allows the wood to flex.
Review by John
Very Good!
(Posted on 27/02/2014)
I have used these shafts on many arrows now, they have stood up to the test of time and are still going strong!
Very affordable yet great quality! will continue to use these!
Review by Ben
Love this wood
(Posted on 04/11/2013)
Cheap, straight and light. Perfect for a lighter longbow and they seem very tough compared to POC.
Review by Stewart
Thumbs up for German spruce.
(Posted on 12/06/2013)
I have tried many wooden arrows and I have found that 20-25 spine is brilliant. I can now rely on my arrows and know any mistakes are my own. I could do with more arrows as I am going to Hungry this year. You have been out of stock now for a long time.
Review by David
good
(Posted on 03/06/2013)
i have just made the arrows, tested the shafts (by shooting them) and the spine is exactly what i asked for, no shooting right or left. they are just right for my draw length without cutting them (about 33 inch un cut). they have a bit more grain run off then i expected, always a few grains striaght so they should be perfectly fine.
Review by Andrew
good quality for low price
(Posted on 10/05/2013)
I always use these now as they are affordable and shoot well of my recurve bow.
