I have approx 1100 11/32 shafts for sale. $30 per dozen. I have not checked the spine on these shafts. Back in the day I was using 70 to 88 pound and they worked just fine for me.

We all know the Arabs, Mongolians, Koreans and most of the far East had developed the technology to make a very good performing composite bow and some of them probably better than others. I read, but I can not say for certain the Romans and Egyptians had this technology but it appears they did. Question? If this is true and the Romans and Egyptians around the year 100 BC were building bows with basically rectangular cross sections and composite materials, then how did that technology not works its way to the United Kingdom in medieval times. We know the D cross section is an inferior shape to the rectangular cross section and will lead to crazing on the compression side. If the English knew this, then why keep building a bow like that? That has always puzzled me. In July, 1935 of the Archery Review, Paul E klopsted looks into the science of making a bow with rectangular. Here is my number one question, how did the technology of a laminated bow get to the California plains Indians? It is well noted in Native American bows by T. M. Hamilton that the plains Indians were making very powerful short composite horse bows. From who did they learn that and when? https://www.ebay.com/itm/284526476564?hash=item423f197d14:g:VvsAAOSwwuJgmKsd

I was going thru some containers and cleaning out some clutter and found this one container. Here is a picture of Andy Vail and some notes Hugh Rich wrote about Andy.

This hunting story by Hugh Rich always bring back memories talking to him. I swear I can remember he told the day of this hunt they hiked 19 miles in one one direction, but my memory could be fooling me. Hope y'all enjoy it as much as I.

I notice someone posted something about Walt and Ken Wilhelm. Here is a book written by Walt about their travels in a covered wagon when their father was prospecting for gold when Walt and Ken were just kids. This is as good as the Witchery of Archery or any other books written on archery. Amazon has it for about $23.

This message is for Fred Anderson. Fred you may not remember me. One day I sent a check to Hugh Rich and he contacted you about making a bow for Ande Vail years ago maybe late 1980's or early 1990's. You made the bow and Ande had that bow with him untill the end. I have one of your bows that I am shooting now. Does this bring up any memories of that?
