Default Looking for shafts

Does anybody out there know where to buy good tapered wood shafts other than Kustom King? They make great arrows but I was hoping to reduce the $30.00/Dz. for just the shafts if I could. Thanks!

Do a search for Rogue River Archery. They have good prices on tapered shafts. I think $22-$26 a dozen.

I taper my own shafts.I bought a thumb plane taper tool..Works real well and can taper a shaft down to 5/16" in a couple of minutes.

Allegheny Arrow Woods is another source for shafts. They don't offer cedar, but they do offer laminated birch and about a half dozen other materials.

The parallel laminated birch shafts are $22.50/dz and tapered are $32.50/dz. They are straight and as tough as nails. Check'em out at:
