The first thing I do is straighten my wooden shafts. The second thing I do is cut them to length, I see no reason to leave them longer than I want them. If this makes them too stiff than they are too stiff. The next thing I do is try different weight points,125, 145 , 160. Doing this helps me see how close the spine is to being perfect. The heaver points should shoot slightly to the right. Ofcourse this is how I like to do it everyone has their own way. Next I will fletch one of the chosen spined arrows the shoot it side by side with the bare shaft of the same spine.Have fun, and check the arrows for straightness often. Wood arrows are neat to shoot but require attention often. Email me if you need more help.
