Spear shafts

Postby caveman101 » Thu Feb 04, 2010 11:15 pm

hi guys, in the process of making a spear, so i need a spear shaft no longer than 6ft. if the area i lived in wasnt a tightly controlled conservation area (although there is coppicing), i would have found my own by now, and pole i have picked off the floor havnt been very good.
BASICALY, where do you guys get your spear shafts?

Search for AS Lloyd- they do ash shafts up to 20' long.

Chris Anson, PMable on here, can get them too, or a length of 2x2" ash and a plane and some of your time.
