Ditto on the Duco on wood or polyurethane. I wipe on the polyu with a rag after I stain the shafts. Stain type depends on what wood I’m using. Port Orford Cedar has more oil in the wood and might require a laquer or alchohol stain. Other woods like chundoo, hickory or ashe will take a natrual stain like walnut hulls and water. Here are some chundoo stained with walnut hull and finished with polyu.

I’ve had these for a while and they needed repair. I sanded off some of the original stain, sealed them, repaired the fletching, added a crest, and some small game tips.
