    Shafting: 3/8" vs.11/32"?

    Post by Stonedog on Wed Dec 12, 2012 5:02 pm

    First, I am not concerned with historical accuracy, but I am concerned about hunting and shooting accuracy.
    That being said, I have 3/8" and 11/32" diameter shafting, oak and ash respectively.
    What is going to be superior?
    11/32" would be easier to make as all of my broad heads and small game heads are for 11/32", but I can switch over no problem.
    What concerns me is being able to taper them properly for broad heads...I already have a woodchuck taper grinder.

    His concerned should I be about spine?

    Thoughts?
