As it happens I just got a dozen Sitka spruce from Hildebrand. Service was excellent–Neal went out of his way to chase down what I needed–but several of the shafts have small flaws from milling, which apparently is a problem due to the grain structure of this wood. I am currently finishing them and applying four-fletch and have fingers crossed they will shoot the same as my first dozen SSs. It’s darn hard to find wood shafts weighing under 400 raw and with a spine of 85.
