Hardwood beech footing for wood and bamboo arrows

The advantages of hardwood beech footings:

  • Offers a stable setting for the application of field and tang points. The arrows do not break off as easily as by spruce, cedar, bamboo etc.
  • Is perfect for shaft repair; also for bamboo shaft repair
  • Beech is easy to work with and does not split as quickly as oak sometimes does
  • Ideal as preventative against future arrow breakage. It reduces the risk of breakage
  • Beech wood is heavier compared to spruce, cedar etc. This leads to a higher FOC (front of center) and a faster stabilization of the arrow
  • A fast and economic way to repair the shaft is the Arrow-Fix method. The shaft is attached with a 5° taper to a 5° inner cone. No planing, no sheer forces

Available variations of the footings with 5° inner cone:

  • A ca. 83mm length of beech wood with one 5° inner cone
  • A ca. 83mm length of beech wood with one 5° inner cone on one side and a 4mm centered cylindric bore which allows the application of a tang point (T-Tip) on the other side
  • A ca. 166mm length of beech wood with a 5° inner cone located on both sides for individual lengths
