- Not buying these again Review by George
Value Quality Price
These shafts are light alright
and they were straight when they arrived bundled tightly together.
But after a day or two resting by themselves the warping began...
and no wonder, the grain was not straight.
Summary; they are no better than the cheap pine dowel you can buy at the hardware store for 30% less.

- Weak wood Review by Joshua Dixon
Value Quality Price
I haven't even gotten to shoot them yet but I won't be buying them again. The grain is not consistent. Usually when I taper port orford cedar it peels away like a pencil. This German spruce shattered off in splinters. I even had shafts break off in my hand.

- will take a beating Review by totally traditional
Quality Price Value
I have always shot port oxford cedar shafts, but the price of these caught my eye and for the price I figured I would give them a try. I was skeptical at first but found after I fletched them up they shot quite nicely. This past weekend my family and I were heading to a local 3D shoot and my sisters new boyfriend decided he wanted to give archery a shot. Having never held a bow before much less shot one I hesitantly loaned him my 50# longbow and 6 of these arrows thinking that if he broke any of them I wouldn’t be out a lot of money. After I gave him a 15 minute crash course in the back yard we left for the shoot. Let’s just say these arrows took a serious beating and after a 40 targets to my surprise all of the arrows were still intact. Thanks for a great value.

- Nice Shafts.....But Review by Bounty Hunter Traditional Arrows
Price Value Quality
I purchased 50 of these shafts and they arrived super fast. The shafts are very nice quality and they require very little additional sanding to prep before building. That is the good news now for the bad news.
9 of the shafts out of the 50 were out of the spine range ordered. I can understand one and maybe two shafts being slightly out of the spine range, but almost 20% and 4 of them were over 5 pounds out of the range. Also the weight of the shafts was very wide, over 60 grain from the lightest to the heaviest. This again is very disappointing, as I would expect the weight range to be a little wider on 50 shafts but not 60 grains.
I would expect a little better quality control from business with the reputation of quality that Lancaster has had over the years. I will give them the benefit of the doubt on this order, however if my next order have the same types of issues I will be looking elsewhere for my shafts. As a Small Business, I can't afford to have these type of quality issues from suppliers.
