I tried them years ago--quality was a problem. They started out pretty good, but went downhill hard and fast. Pretty sure everyone I knew of making them went out of business.

I think Hildebrand will be who I try next.

Was the wood the problem? was the wood actually what went down hill or the quality control? I guess what I am asking was it the wood or the processing that created a poor quality of shaft?
thanks Nate

I don't know if it was QC or the supply that went down the crapper--maybe both. It got next to impossible to get shafts with a good, straight grain--and the ones I had without a good straight grain wouldn't stay straight, and broke easily.

I'm using river cane right now, it takes a lot of work and effort to get them straight but boy they hit hard.

I have pretty much an unlimited supply of river cane, but very limited time to build arrows. A friend of mine made some and really liked them, but they are more work that I have time for.

there are only 2 producers of cedar shafting, you might give one of them a call and see if you can get some blanks
http://www.rosecityarchery.com/ this is a really neat site there used to be three manufacturers, but rose city bought acme and moved into thier plant
35.24 a dozen for bare unfinished shafts.

Unless one or the other has shut down, there's at least three places that produce POC shafting: Rose City, Wapiti Archery, and Raven Archery. Tom at Raven might have retired--I haven't talked with them in a year or so.
