I’ve spine checked a lot of shafts and find there isn’t much difference between spine with or across the grain, rarely more than a couple of pounds. That two pounds may be enough to move you away from good arrow flight, tho. Spining against the edge of the grain normally gives the stiffest spine, but not always. I spine all of my shafts against the grain and build the arrows that way, too.
