Port Orford Cedar arrows and shafting have played an important role in the history or archery. It is with good reason that these arrows have been the number one choice of so many legendary archers through the years. For instance, one of the greatest archers of all time, Howard Hill, insisted on using only Port Orford Cedar for his best target and bowhunting arrows.
Bearpaw Products and Rose City Archery are committed to making these amazing wooden arrows of the highest quality available to all archers again!
There are two important reasons for the archers of today to make the choice to shoot wooden arrows, even though there are so many other modern and artificial materials available.
- The passion and love they have for arrows made of real natural wood
- The rules for competitions put on by individual associations
This is especially true in the long bow classes, it is mandatory to shoot wooden arrows in many tournaments and championships. For wooden arrows, the best arrows have always been made from Port Orford Cedar. Cedar wood arrow are clearly the first choice in wooden arrows. The unique features of Port Orford Cedar arrows allow the arrows to stabilize extremely fast. Thanks to its excellent modulus of elasticity, Port Orford Cedar guarantees high flexibility and has always displayed a willingness to stay straight for a long time!
Our ‚premium‘ quality Port Orford cedar shafts are all spine matched and sorted to within 5 pounds. Premium Port Orford cedar shafting is much straighter than other shafting and much more willing to be straightened and stay straight than other shafting. Even the growth rings are more consistent than in other shafting.
When a Port Orford cedar tree is pocessed into shafting it is very difficult to get many premium quality safts that are 32" long. For that reason there is often more demand than there is supply. Rose City Archery will supply us with 32" premium quality cedar shating when they can, but the quantities will be limited and the price will be higher than it is on our 30" cedar shafting. If you need the longer arrows, it is a good idea to order them right away. There may be a wait, and they may be more costly, but they will be worth it.Henry Bodnik highly recommends wooden arrows made from quality Port Orford Cedar!
