Effective immediately you will be able to find our brand new Bearpaw Feathers using the menu item “Feathers” –> “Bearpaw Natural Feathers” in the Bearpaw Online Shop. Turkey feathers are, as always, the best possible feathers when using natural feathers on arrows. For this reason Bearpaw Products has decided to take control of the production process of the turkey feathers.
Bearpaw oversees the production of the natural feathers insuring that they are produced following strict guidelines. We monitor the treatment process to insure that the bleach and coloring that are used are harmless and that they conform to the European guidelines. We also set high standards for the exact and high quality workmanship and properties of the feathers. We also insure that the feathers meet our high quality standards with regard to the form, length, surface feel and properties of the feathers.
We will start the offering the new left-wound feather from our own Bearpaw feather production this week. The right-wound feather will then be introduced next week receiving them in our warehouse. It should be noted that the left-wound feathers are in high demand. Left-wound feathers have a positive effect on the arrow reflex for right handed archers. With the left-wound feathers from Bearpaw we strengthen and optimize this effect even more.
The shield form of the Bearpaw feathers is cut somewhat flatter than those of other feathers on the market, in order to make a higher arrow speed possible. On my last visit to the Bearpaw headquarters I was able to steal a look at the barred feather that will be appearing shortly. I must say they have done an excellent job with it also. In this same place on Wednesday next week there will be more detailed information about the RW and barred Bearpaw feathers available.
