    Correct... well almost. Cedar arrows not spruce

    "Left is weak right stiff according to all advice like Easton etc" it is if you are a left handed archer, holding the bow in your right hand. If you are a RH archer, bow in the LH then weak will fly nock left and stiff will fly nock right. I tend to find that if the arrow is primarily hitting right of target when fletched it is most likely you need to adjust your centre shot?

    No. Such generic recommendation usually refer to right-handed archers implicitly. Which is also true for the statement above.
    I'm left-handed, too (and shoot left-handed).

    OK Easton was not a good choice as an example but correct me if I'm wrong but in the Easton tuning guide they are only talking about Olympic recurve and compound with carbon or aluminium arrows, I can bare shaft tune my trad recurve bow with carbons no problem and also my compound, so I think that that is a separate tuning issue for those bows/arrows types. All I'm saying is if you do an internet search for bare shaft tuning wooden arrows EVERY article/video/etc says if the nock is left the shaft is weak. Even the bow manufacturers (eg Black Widow Bows) says the same thing. Here is an example https://www.grump-bear.com/bare-shaft-tuning
    or

    I see the source of the confusion.

    For a right handed archer, if the bare shaft *hits left* of the fletched arrows, it's considered stiff. If it *hits right*, it's considered weak.

    The angle of the bare shaft in the target is another matter. Judging spine like that can be tricky, as the angle of the arrow in the target can be affected by the target material.
