Swaged Aluminum Shafts
« on: July 11, 2020, 10:02:54 AM »
Does anybody swage aluminum shafts these days.  Years ago i got them from RJ Archery in Montana (if i remember correctly).  Looking to buy some 2117 swaged shafts. 

Thx

That may have been the place I use to get them from too.  I loved them but couldn't find them anymore. Curious if anyone does that.

I've gotten a lot off the classifieds.

I think the Legacy aluminum shafts from Easton are still swaged.

You are referring to the point end ? Haven’t seen that add in many moons now. The advent of carbons has done away with a lot of aluminum arrow accessories and services.

That's all I've shot for years is 2216 and 2117 swaged aluminum.
