The process I go through to build an arrow I am pleased to offer is as follows:
First I go through and inspect all shafts, weigh and check spine again. Then I will check for straightness and do any adjusting to insure a shaft is ready to be made into an arrow. After each step from here on I also check for straightness in order to make sure your arrows are as close to perfect as possible. At this point I will nock and tip taper(if customer requests this) and apply stain. After allowing stain to set the shafts' surface is prepped by lightly sanding with steel wool. They are then crown dipped and crested. Nocks are then glued on to the shafts. At this point I dip the shafts in a proven protective sealer called ProFin. It is highly resistant to "target burn" and moisture. By dipping the full shaft the sealer protects the decorative cresting paint as well. After the appropriate time for curing then the shafts are fetched on Bitzenburger fetching jigs for perfect feather alignment.
My arrows are crafted from Surewood Shafts, the finest wood shafts made today. They are made from a long proven arrow shaft material-douglas fir. For those who demand the best wood arrows for hunting and/or competition douglas fir is a great choice for accuracy, durability and weight. I offer parallel or tapered shafts grouped in 5# spine groups, i.e. 50#-55#, and + or – 10 grains in weight. You can choose the shaft diameter, spine, crown and cresting colors. The nock type and point weight, as well as, fletching shape and length is up to you also.
