Does anyone have any opinions on Rose City Archery?  It seems that I always hear about them in one place or another.  What quality of arrows do they turn out?

Been around for a long time. They're about the only major producer of POC shafts left.  The rap a while ago was that vendors would often have to cull a lot of shafts to arrive at acceptable shafts to resell to customers. Don't know if that's still the case.  Probably better off buying from a vendor than direct though, because at least some of the lesser quality shafts would likely be culled.

Orion is correct. Rose City is a manufacturer of arrow shafts. They provide 90% of the world’s arrow shafts.

Check out Wapiti Archery as well. They are also a producer of arrow shafts. http://www.wapitiarcherypoc.com

They offer different grades of shafting. If you buy their premium grade shafts that's exactly what you will get.

I ended up with a couple dozen complete arrows from them that I picked up for around $50 a dozen on closeout from a dealer. I'll just say that if I had paid full price, I would have been extremely disappointed. And I am NOT a precision freak when it comes to arrows... LOL

I think any time you buy arrows off the shelf you could end up being disappointed.  Either make your own or order from an arrow making specialist.  Adding the caveat that you must know what you need in the arrow.

I'll just say that if I want POC, I much prefer Wapiti Archery for my raw shafts.

Try Wapiti, a sponsor here. In my own experience you'll definitely get a higher quality raw shaft than Rose City, regardless of whether or not you paid the extra $ to Rose City for their "Premium" shafts.

RMSG is another good choice.  Pretty sure they get their shafts from rose City but they will sort them out to your specs.
