I'm looking for someone to take my shafts and turn them into footed shafts. Anyone out there?

I have never owned a footed shaft. But have seen some real beauty’s leather wallers have made on here. Looks like a lot of work. Good luck!

Get ahold of Surewood Shafts. They can refer you to a man that does shafts for some retailers.

A chance for me to learn something here. Lets say I have for example, 50-55 shafts already cut/tuned. I decide to foot them how much or if any at all does that affect spine? Nice looking shafts SaddleHill.

Likely be a counterbalance effect to degree my thinking...*hardwood glued/laminate = stiffer spine effect....*Hardwood footing/point=more point weight=weaker effect ......Still likely slightly stiffer spine but see what thse that "know" know ;)

Beautiful arrows !!!

From what I've found out the added point weight is minimal. Replace to weight of Cedar with the footed wood weight @30-40 grains.

perty sure Aromkr said not noticeable change of spine with footing

he should know

I second Aromkr slight weight gain but I have never had any change in spine to make any noticeable differance static or dynamic.Footed mixed with unfooted you can pick up a slight differance but if they are all footed and weigh close to the same they will be ok.Not too many of us shoot well enough to tell the differance.At least I don't.
