Arrow Shaft Straightening

I prefer to look down the arrow shaft to identify the location of the bend. I put the high side of the end in the palm of my hand and gently bend the shaft the opposite direction. It may take a few tries to straighten out the arrow, but in my opinion, this technique works best.
