Arrows are used to train the Ranged skill in Old School RuneScape. There are many different types of arrows, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common type of arrow is the bronze arrow, which is the weakest and most basic type of arrow.
Other types of arrows include iron arrows, steel arrows, mithril arrows, and adamant arrows. Each successive type of arrow is stronger and more expensive than the last.
Arrows can be bought from the Ranged Guild, from other players, or from certain monsters. They can also be made using the Fletching skill. To make arrows, players need a knife and some logs. The type of log needed depends on the type of arrow being made.
For example, to make iron arrows, players need oak logs. Once a player has the required logs, they can use the Fletching skill to cut the logs into arrow shafts. These shafts can then be fitted with feathers and tips to create complete arrows.

Well i goi g to be honest. These are not what they claim. I you don’t believe me weight them or even better get Cabela’s to weight some right out of the box. The advertised 442 gr with 100 gr feild points.
I have bought 6 boxes in the last 3 years and none of them weight 344 gr. Had Cabela’s in Dartmouth weight some new ones and they still weighted the same as mine. Ranging from 453 to 489 with 99. 2 to 101.
3 gr field points. I number them all and grouped the same weighted ones and then shot them all. They went all over the place. Took the 3 that grouped good and set my scope to zer them in every time i bust one i have to go get the next group an re sight in.
I have tried onther types and so far these are the worst I’ve tested.
Bought these for my son to shoot out of his Bear Legit bow. Fetching came off almost immediately, had them reflected and they are doing the same thing. Even let them dry for 48+ hours. This was at 50lbs.
At 60lbs the shafts are now starting to Crack. I’d spend a few more dollars and buy better arrows. oh wait I am. I shoot an APA v7 with bloodlines and minus a few cracked shafts due to 70lb draw weight and a few hundred shots they’ve held up quite nicely.
I’ve shot these arrows and for the most part find them to be better in toughness than the 2219 aluminum arrows 400gr. In that the aluminum seem to bend very easy and these don’t bend. Usually can use the same arrow to hunt again but have not found that to be true with aluminum.
They do weigh a little more 442 gr, so you should adjust your site accordingly. They also came with the moon, more aggressive C and universal version nocks. Weights given include 100 gr field point (not included).
The Maxima RED is a breakthrough in controlling Dynamic Spine. The hi-tech carbon design has stiffer ends to contain the arrow’s flex to what is called the “RED ZONE”. The RED ZONE is the section of the arrow shaft engineered to contain Dynamic Spine and make a broadhead shoot more consistently.
Containing arrow flex to the RED ZONE provides a new level of hunting performance because broadheads exaggerate the effect of arrow flexing in flight and act like “wings” on the front of the arrow. By reducing arrow flex in the front of the shaft, the Maxima RED makes broadheads shoot tighter groups and provides overall improved hunting performance.
Both expandable and fixed blade broadheads exaggerate the effect of this increased flexing because the shape of the broadhead act like “wings” on the front of the arrow. The stiffer front end of the arrow shaft repositions arrow flex to the RED ZONE and reduces oscillation on the front end to make broadheads shoot more consistently.
This results in tighter groups with broadheads and makes the Maxima RED the Ultimate Hunting Arrow.
Been the best hunting arrows I have had through the years. Easy to transition and tune going from target tips to broadheads. Very tough and take the abuse of many shots. Very consistent and straight as advertised.
I shoot a Mathews Outback at 70 pounds. My old Carbon Express Maxima arrows were an inch shorter than the Maxima Red I received. I have shot hundreds of arrows using both old and new and do not notice any difference in my 35 yard range.
Engineered with advanced carbon materials to provide superior spine consistency and deliver the ultimate combination of speed, accuracy, and penetration. Factory fletched with 3″vanes. 20″bolts weigh 420 grains and 22″bolts weigh 449 grains (with 100 gr.
point). Inserts and moon nocks installed, includes flat nocks.
Bought these and started shooting them. They shot terribly and couldn’t hold a group at all. I compared them to my gold tips and the gold tips grouped flawlessly. Then after shooting the carbon expresses for a little more, the groups started getting better.
Then I thought they were good, but then I would shoot 3 shot groups and 2 would be right where I want them, then the last one would be 8 inches right. I compared them to my gold tips once again, and still the gold tips hit the same spot every time.
I’m disappointed in these bolts because of the poor consistency.
So far I am happy with this purchase. This is the first time I have used this particular bolt for my Barnett. So far they are accurate. The only reason 4 stars is personal really I like my bolts clean and these have a lot of glue around the fletchings.
I just think that the company could have done better but it does not seem to affect the accuracy.
These bolts are tough and durable but I think there is a problem with their manufacturing tolerances. About half of the bolts I can hit a fly with. The rest are suspect. One for instance flies about five inches to the left and two inches low, the other about three inches low.
So, I’m finding that only half the bolts are usable.
The Carbon Express Arrows, 55/70, 30″, 6pk, is selectively and specifically engineered for higher velocity to create flatter trajectory and increased shooting accuracy. These high speed arrows feature compact Blazer vanes for higher arrow velocity and tunable nocks for precision straight shooting accuracy.
These Carbon Arrows have +0. 0035″ straightness, are 30″ in length to fit your draw length and are compatible with 55 to 70 lb bows.
First let me say I am a first year Archer and have very little to compare in the way of expensive arrows. I began practicing on a 4 pack of Beman Arrows to see if I was going to stick with my plan to hunt with a bow this year.
6 months I spent shooting the Bemans with very inconsistent groupings. Adjusting and readjusting my sights nearly every time I shot which is every day. With Bemans I was getting 8 inch groupings at 30 yards.
I picked up this 6 pack at Walmart and put 100 gr field tips on them and mixed them in my quiver with the others. WOW, at 30 yards these arrows consistently grouped 2-3 inch max. (Not impressive I know) but I am sold on these over the others.
I have a way to go but am gaining better confidence in myself with better equipment.
Admittedly I was skeptical before making this purchase being that it was right off the shelf in a pre-packaged box in Walmart and not a bow pro-shop. However, the price seemed right for the name brand on the box and I figured with a name like Carbon Express that they couldn’t really be a bad choice.
I don’t regret the purchase, but if I could do it again I might be apt to look at something else. The price tag of $40 really isn’t all that much of a deal when compared to other good brands and quality that’s out there when matched up to a comparable arrow.
The shaft is straight and true, the Blazer vanes are the name brand ones, not knock offs and the knocks are adjustable and are snug enough in the shaft that they don’t slide in and out on their own. The semi-disappointing thing that sticks out for me with this setup is the general sloppy glue job on the vanes.
The vanes don’t look like they had much TLC when they were glued on because it literally looks like the glue was painted on with a popsicle stick, and I’ve already had one vane come clean off in a styrofoam target.
All in all it’s not a bad arrow, however if you have your own fletching tool and glue I would highly recommend you strip off the vanes and redo it yourself before you even take a shot. The materials are quality, just doesn’t seem the craftsmanship on the assembly line is.
If someone asked me if they should get them I would first recommend looking around at all their options, but over all I wouldn’t steer them away from Speed Freaks. If it wasn’t for the poor glue on the vanes this would be a 5 star Overall rating instead of my 4 stars, and if the price was closer to $30 – $35 the Value would be a bit better, and more appropriate.
I bought these arrows today. I have shot Easton Hexx, Redhead X5, X3 and X1, Goldentip, Easton Bloodline. I can group about 6 arrows in a 2″ group at 50 yards. I bought these today because they were carbon express and at walmart by my work.
We recently moved away from cabelas or bass pro and I thought these would work fine. These arrows shot out of the same bow I always use at about a 8″ group at 20 yards into my target. I shot all six three times.
On the third time one of the arrows blew up either before it hit the target or upon impact. These are the worst arrows I have ever used. Please do not waste your money. By any other arrow but these. Also, this was my first time shooting carbon express and I will say that after shooting these I do not know if I want to try any of their other arrows out.
Arrows from Easton for harder hits and unequaled knockdown power. New carbon arrows are the first ever to use carbon nanotubes for increased strength and reduced vibration. Micro-small diameter for increased penetration, low wind drift, and a heavier mass for power.
Patented hit inserts provide full contact between broadhead shank and shaft wall for added strength and tighter groups. Durable 2″ blazer vanes aid in accuracy.
They’re very good shooting arrows for the accuracy and speed. Not the heaviest arrow compared to some but still heavier than a lot of the competition and heavy enough for that increased penetration for those elk hunters.
The only downside to these arrows is that they are not very strong. If you miss the target a couple times with an arrow the front end of the shaft is almost always guaranteed to break (so don;t miss!).
I would say from my experience that gold tip arrows are much stronger and can take a much harder beating. But like I said if you don’t miss the target at all these arrows are great.
I called customer service to confirm a few things before I ordered. This is a pack of 6 arrows and they come already fletched. There is no quantity in the description. I was also looking for bare shafts.
The picture showed the fletching but the description said nothing about vanes.
High-velocity penetration with 24% more Kinetic Energy Density than standard-diameter carbon arrows. Easton carbon technology provides super-strong, hard-hitting durability. Hidden Insert Technology for always-perfect broadhead alignment.
The arrows were packed loose the a box with no packing. I was lucky this time, but this is no way to ship arrows. This would have been 5 stars if not for the packing job. Don’t get me wrong, I like to shop at Academy even though I live in Wa.
Used to live in TX and shopped at Academy all the time. So this is really disappointing.
I always keep a couple of these with a judo tip when I’m out deer hunting in case a squirrel starts barking at me. It doesn’t take expensive arrows to handle that. These fit that bill. I got a dozen a year ago, still have all 12.
Perfect low cost item. “Straight as an Arrow”!!! Like the female threads for versatility. Put on some safer tips when the kiddies are out with me, Actually helpful when feeding through a hole to locate a cable n the attic or basement!!! Super useful!!! Need to have a few of these low cost useful items around at all times.
Equip your crossbow with the accuracy and reliability of the Ravin Crossbow Arrows. To keep you shooting with total accuracy, Ravin designed these arrows with a high strength, 100% carbon construction.
To get you shooting soon, brass threaded inserts and aluminum nock bushings are included. Shoot the best, when you shoot the Ravin Crossbow Arrows.
Followed the manufacturer’s directions for unloading the crossbow by pulling the arrow off the string while in the deer blind. The nock stayed behind in the trigger system, this happened on 2 consecutive hunting trips.
Decided to test my other arrows after getting home, another came out as well. 50% failure rate when 3 of 6 fail. Hope the bow and other Ravin products hold up better. Crossbow shoots great, but proprietary arrow failure is concerning and disappointing.
Ive got the bow. Every forum I’ve been on states that even the best alternative may do more harm then good. All non ravin bolts will void the warranty. These are spot on at 80 yards. The risk of using another brand is negated right there.
100 yard shots are cool but also risks an injury. I like these bolts. Con is price.
Good bolts. I have not had as single issue with the 12 bolts I have bought, except not being able to find them after a passthrough shot on an elk and a mule deer and a shot out target. I hope someone comes up with a less expensive lighted nock that fits the Ravin products.
I have lost 4 bolts that I could have possibly found if I had lighted nocks. I can’t see paying over twice the cost of bolt for a nock with such low reviews. Come on Ravin you can produce a better quality product in the USA for a cheaper price than this Chi— junk.
Formulated with higher front-of-center weighting, the Punisher can put on the hurt. This standard diameter arrow has exceptional down-range accuracy and bone-crushing penetration. Made of 100% carbon using our proprietary Rugged Wrap construction, it will deliver fatal results.
Great micro diameter arrows. I’ve used GT kinetic pierce and Victory VAPs and I feel the bloodsports have the most overall consistency in a group of 6. No flyers. The insert/outserts work great. Durable.
Also look pretty damn sexy. Speaking of sexy, they penetrate my target way better than the VAP and the same as the kinetics at 30yds(compressed foam target).
These Gold Tip Traditional Arrows are suitable for use at the range or in the field. They feature all-carbon construction with a wood-grain finish that makes them ideal for traditional archers looking for durability and performance.
These Gold Tip arrows are factory fletched with 4 inch feathers and 2 inch Raptor vanes and come with matching nocks and inserts. Each one has a straightness tolerance of +/-. 006 inch, a weight tolerance of +/-2.
0 grains and an overall weight of 10. 5 GPI. This pack contains a set of six size 340 carbon arrows with light brown shafts. The Gold Tip Traditional series also includes models in sizes 600 (7. 8 GPI), 500 (8.
So let’s start with the bad and end with the good. Upon initially seeing my new Gold Tip Traditional Carbon arrows I was quite excited to get them out and see how they performed. I ordered 6- fletched, cut to length arrows with inserts included.
Normally I would not have anyone else fletch my arrows but considering I was paying $81. 50 and being from 3 Rivers I was expecting quality. When I went through my first shot with each six I began noticing the flaws.
For instance, 1 arrow was nocked incorrectly with the coch feather backward. Not a huge deal but when shooting over and over, it becomes irritating to always have to keep an eye out for the one with a white coch feather and backward nock.
As I shot each arrow for the third time I watched as one of my fletchings fluttered down in front of my face, half being torn off and have remained on the shaft. I inspected my arrows and noticed that multiple fletchings were only partially glued on, most of which had the forward piece hanging out, waiting to be caught and torn.
So after buying 6 arrows and shooting them three times, I now have to work on three of them. Not that the work is hard or anything like that, it’s just the fact that I paid a steep price for mediocre work.
Now to end on a good note, these shafts themselves are straight, weighted evenly and appear to be tough. The ones I have that remain properly made shoot straight and leave my old wood shafts in the dust.
So ultimately the question is, would I recommend these to a friend. That depends on if and how Three Rivers corrects this issue and ensures that it does not happen in the future. I’m starting to hear more and more complaints about this same issue.
For reference I am shooting a 60# @ 28″ Pronghorn Custom longbow, 27. 5 draw and the 500’s with 125 gr points seem to be the correct match.
I’ve had my set of one dozen custom Gold Tip Traditional Arrows built by 3Rivers using their “arrow builder” for about sevens months now. I’ve shot them extensively and used them during a paper animal archery league at my sportsman’s club.
They’ve been used and abused; hit with other peoples arrows, shot into the wood target frame, trees, the dirt, ect. and fired thousands of times from my approx 50# recurve. They all still look and perform great! Not one broken arrow, not one lost fletching! I love this set of arrows so much I just bought another dozen in 400 spine for another bow of mine.
I don’t buy the pre-made ones because I prefer to have the wrap with pink and lime feathers so I can find them when I miss whatever small game I’m shooting at in the woods. If 3Rivers gives as much attention to building these as they do their custom orders though, then they are well worth the price.
I didn’t want to cut and tune etc. my bow and arrows and self, if something will change, so I invested in these to be an excellent baseline. For a sage 55#, 125gr tips, using the spine calculator here, I learned the length to cut these to.
Once I cut and took them out, I noticed how small changes in my form was predictably changing the flight path, they were flying incredibly well, grouping beyond what I thought was my capability. My 28″ test length for the arrow punched clean through my target that reliably stopped my others of similar weight, and one buried clean underground, I’ll have to look for it after some snow melts, these are heavy hitters.
I even called a cut down tree end, 3″, as my target, and hit it first shot of the day from about 15 yards away, as quite the amateur. They have an attractive faux wood finish that doesn’t look like a glossy picture of wood, it looks like wood.
I can only surmise the shield cut and helical 5″ feathers contribute to stability. The red feathers look amazing, with the wood tones and classic logos on the label. The nock moves freely up and down the string as others grip it, haven’t had any problems.
Low-profile H diameter shaft designed to be lightweight yet still provide increased penetration. Straightness tolerance of +-. 003Ó. Available in sizes 480 (6. 8 GPI), 400 (7. 7 GPI), and 330 (8. 7 GPI).
Factory crested, includes HP inserts and H nocks. Size: 400. Pack Size: 6/pk. Style: Factory 2″ Blazers.
The hit inserts were installed flush with the front of the arrow shaft instead of in the the shaft 3/8ths of an inch or so. Field points and broadheads stick out way to far and only go as deep as the threads on them.
I have removed hit inserts out of fmj 5mm before and had no problem but these inserts have been epoxyed in and no method of removal has budged them. Real disappointed man seeing as I have wasted 130 dollars on arrows I cannot use or resale because of the improper installation on the inserts.
The 6. 5 uses a proprietary Acu-Carbon Uniform Spine process. Acu-Carbon is continuous fed single die manufacturing method that results in the most reliable tolerance and eliminates the need for the spine alignment and weight sorting.
I have been using these arrows for many, many years. Have harvested deer with no problem every season. They fly true from my compound bow; and I shoot 3 fingers under the nock. I don’t mind if the fletch is red/white at times when I receive them; the deer I have harvested don’t seem to be bothered.
Sometimes I have received the arrows with the fletch orange/yellow. Again, the color of the fletch has never “spooked,” any deer I have harvested. These XX75’s have been manufactured by Easton for a very long time and I hope they never stop.
And they are made right here in the U. S. A. ! Made right every time; never had a bad batch or a bad arrow from a batch. I have gone through 4 bows over the years and each bow will always be nocked with the Easton XX75.
If it isn’t broke and it works for you, why change? I tried carbon from other companies and Easton too, these XX75’s just keep staying in my quiver.
These arrow are really straight, balanced and a dream to shoot. I spin tested each one before they were shot, and they are just perfect. Although, this size is a little too fat for my taste, I bought them to teach my wife how to shoot.
My wife had never used a bow before, so I gave her my 20 # Samick Sage. with siz of these arrows. After a brief explanation on posture, bow handling and shooting theory, she tried the first arrow, It landed about four feet from the target.
Lower your aim, relax, and just let go the fingers. The second arrow went about two feet from the target. Now just maintain your posture and aim a little to the right. One after the other she threw the remaining four arrows.
I literally measured them as a 4″ wide grouping. Of course, this was at only 8 yards from the target. But as soon as she kept shooting the exact same way, the arrows went straight to their grouping point.
The Easton Carbon Legacy combines the traditional look of wood-grained carbon with high-visibility white-dipped and hand-feather fletched craftsmanship. Offers the finest vintage aesthetic in a highly effective hunting carbon arrow.
Fletched with three 4” left wing helical feathers including a traditional barred index feather and combinations of red, white, and bright yellow hen feathers. The Carbon Legacy is accurate, durable, and has exceptional flight visibility.
I’m usually not one to leave a bad review but on this arrow I feel it is a must. Inconsistent is the word. To get them to somewhat group you have to rotate all to different spots to get them somewhat consistent.
They also wouldn’t bareshaft tune. Definitely not happy with these. Easton dropped the ball on the quality of these sticks.
Fletching color choice is not an option although there are 3 different colors available for each spine, I emailed and was told they ship randomly. I wound up with the 1 of 3 colors I did not want. Fletching color choice should be an option.
Not sure I would buy again without a color option choice.
Excalibur has teamed with an arrow manufacturer, Easton, to develop the all-new Quill Arrows. Specifically designed for Excaliburs Micro Series Crossbows. The Quill carbon arrows are 16. 5″ long and feature 2″ offset vanes for flawless flight when matched with an appropriate broadhead.
Extensive testing has shown them to be the perfect choice for hunting with all Micro crossbows. Comes in a pack of six arrows in assorted colors.
I’m very disappointed with the new bolts with lumenok. The new version has a different knock from the previous version. When I shoot them, they drop and hit the ground 2 feet in front of the target at 25 yds.
The old version flew the same as target bolts. I removed the lumenok and they shoot well. They cannot be returned to Cabela’s ( nonreturnable item). I will use them for practice, but once my older lumenok bolts are gone, I will not be able to replace them and will have to use non lit nocks.
These are a bit over priced for what you get. The first bolt that was in my quiver had a vein come off, money wasted. I did shoot one at doe. It looks like a red lighting bolt flying. The deer saw it coming and jumped the string, so the bolt did not hit where I was aiming.
It did work, but not for me. I did recover the deer, and the bolt after dark. The lighted nock was not visible till the sun went down. Try to turn it off, Impossible. The nock glowed for two days before going dead.
The bolt price for three bolts is excessive. The lighted nocks may cost you a buck along the line. The deer can see it coming at them. Spend the money on more arrows, or broadheads.
Seller cared enough to call and make sure I knew that Diablos are no longer made by Easton. They are now made by Black Eagle. I’m sure it a better quality controlled bolt. However, I’m not crazy about the writing on the vane.
This is because they use blazers which is actually a much better vane. I’m retiring my old diablos just to have some old school non sporty ones. Anyway this is a great shop to buy from. I’m sure some bad reviews are due to this new switch confusion.
The most accurate lighted crossbow arrow ever, the TenPoint CenterPunch 20-inch arrow is fletched slightly offset and is fitted with an 84-grain insert and TenPoint’s Green molded Alpha-Nock and Alpha-Brite System.
Constructed from modulus carbon fiber at 33 MSI (million-pounds-per-square-inch) and wrapped in an exclusive LAZER-TECH carbon weave, it is fletched with 3. 5′′ Bohning X Vanes. CenterPunch arrows are inspected for straightness to within.
001 and each package is weight-grain matched to within 1-grain per arrow.
I bought a 6-pack of these from Cabelas in spring as I got some for Christmas and really liked the way they shot. I didn’t pull them out of packaging until a week ago before my bow opener. Upon pulling them out I noticed they are different from my first set, my first set did not have the aluminum inserts with the nocks.
I thought that was odd but when on shooting with horrendous results. 4 of the 6 bolts had little to no glue on the insert so they popped out a bit after target impact and would spin freely in the arrow shaft.
I had to use insert glue and glue these back in myself. I was already annoyed when I started noticing the consistency was garbage between the 6 bolts I was shooting at the time. I got frustrated and gave the bow to my girlfriend who is a dead shot and she had the same results.
Looking close at the bolts the aluminum inserts are slightly larger diameter than the bolt shaft, causing them to drag on the crossbow barrel on one or both sides, obvsiuoy will cause a problem, even closer inspection found fletching glue all over the shafts which I was able to scratch off with my finger nails and then the fletching was very sporadic for the slight helix, some were dead straight down the damage, others varied with the amount of helix, again will cause sporadic shot placement.
After one bolt fractured mid shaft after such and errant shot at 60yds it caught the very edge of my bee425 bag target, I tossed these aside and grabbed my original set. The original 6 I was placing 1”or less 3-bolt patterns at 60yds, and these new ones would not pattern better than 6” or more.
I’m outside of Cabelas return window so I will be contacting ten point directly. My. 003” bolts from ten point shot better than this batch. This is a major disappointment for me as I am very satisfied with the rest of my ten point and evo-x products.
I highly recommend not buying these bolts with this lighted nock system. I shot roughly 15 shots after receiving them before I lost all three green nocks. They fall out anywhere along the flight path.
I found the first few around the target, so I assumed they fell out from the vibration of the impact. However, others were found midway in the flight path. This is obviously a very poor design for a TenPoint product.
You cannot use another off market brand of nock because it does not have the double curvature where the string attaches. I have contacted TenPoint via there messaging system on their webpage. Will let you know if I get any resolution.
I have been guiding and bow hunting for decades. I’ve tried every brand out there and only settle for perfection. I’m not satisfied with a 2in group at 40 or 50 yards. a friend of mine call a pack of the Evo X false and he raved about how good they were.
I was a little skeptical because he’s only been hunting for a few years. So I decided to break down and buy a pack of the Evo X with the alpha nocks. And I tell you what I’m glad I did! Forget about 20, 30, 40, or 50 yards.
I’m actually holding an inch or less group at 60 to 80 yards with my reverse limb Horton storm RDX! Most of my shots are touching the previous hole. when you have to only shoot one bolt at a time or two at opposite full size of your target, because you are splitting arrows.
You know you have an amazing product! I normally nitpick products to death because I’m usually the one that gets a bad review and stuck with a bad product. But this is honestly the last Bolt anyone will ever need.
The are truly beyond compare. So please, don’t waste your hard earn money like I did finding the perfect arrow for your crossbow. Just spend a little extra money and watch your confidence in your shot placement go through the roof.
the picture I am attaching was my very first shot at 80 yards. I played it safe and aimed an inch high just in case my scope was off. And I hit exactly where I was aiming. Dead center and an inch high! P.
S. Killer Instincts makes the perfect speed adjustable scope to go with these bolts and any crossbow shooting 250-450fps. – DOUBLE BAND GUIDING & OUTFITTING.
You can gain precision and accuracy when you use Barnett 22-inch carbon crossbow arrows. These black arrows with black and green vanes will look great on your targets. With a carbon shaft, they have an ideal consistency and weight-distribution to aid archers.
They are designed to offer good contact between the moon nocks and the bowstring. You can use these arrows with crossbows such as the Quad 400, Quad AVI, and Predator. This set comprises five arrows.
always been an active archer, but age and elbow problems pushed me to crossbow. Bought a Gamecrusher and these bolts for deer hunting and target with these for past three years. still had my original dozen despite the amount of usage.
accuracy is always there. My wife (not a sports enthusiast) can drill bullseyes easily. Its now time to buy another dozen! a lot more affordable than some other expensive brands. only complaint is it is hard to find them in local stores or major retailer.
I don’t know what the 1 * is talking about. The can pattern these just fine (2inch circle) at 60 yards. If you can’t do it at 20 it seems more user error than anything else. I’ve been using these with my Barnett Ghost 360 since 2015 and have had zero complaints.
They’ve felled deer, stayed in one piece after going through shoulders, and stayed flying straight after extensive use with some pretty crappy targets.
The bolts are good, but. the company selling them needs to get their act together. The picture shows florescent green and orange fletchings. The bolts I received had red and white fletchings. they’re fine for practice but I will never take them into the woods.
Horrible colors to carry around and miserable to recover. Especially if you’re color blind.
The Parker Red Hot? high-velocity carbon arrows deliver the high performance you need in the field. Built-in weight-forward technology provides superior down-range accuracy with a broadhead. They’re designed to work seamlessly with with Parker crossbows.
I use Parker Tornado F4 crossbow, I just purchase, new with Parker’s Red Hot High Velocity Crossbow Bolts. Right out of the box while at the store. I lost two (2) rosters (a white vine on two arrows, on the 1st four (4) shots) into a target.
We found the two rosters and the dealer placed them back on. He marked them with a marker. Sense then, I’ve loss the rosters on the remaining 4 arrows & had to reattach them. Other than the rosters coming off.
These are the most accurate crossbow arrows you can buy. Very tough and strong. Their weight forward design is a huge advantage for hunting. I have used these arrows for 9 years and won’t use any other.
Excalibur Firebolt Carbon Arrows 20 in. 6pk 22CAV-6 Excaliburs arrows are made from the highest quality materials to exact specifications to ensure the best possible accuracy while using broadheads. Made from Series 22 Carbon.
Note that Excalibur Firebold arrows do not require the use of nocks and are ready to use as they are supplied with flat ends.
These bolts fly true with 150 grain field points and 150 grain boltcutter broadheads. I got green fetching this time which is great. But you might get other colors not optimum for hunting. Would be great if you could choose colors.
These shafts work well when they are perfect, either with 150 gr boltcutters out to 30 yds or with 100 gr mechanical broadheads out to 50 yds. However, you should never twist or even slightly bend them when pulling them out of a target block, and if one shaft has touched another one, both need to be carefully checked for damage.
At any time, practice or hunting, flex them before and after use. If the tip strikes an animal or the ground, check the shaft. The carbon can splinter from the slightest indirect impact and can even leave really small slivers in the meat – cut around and discard.
The last box I received had a new warning about all the dangers. So I now use the carbon ones for fun in the back yard and for introducing newbies to the sport – once these are gone that’s it. I already had the xx75 2219 hunter shafts but those are really for close and big game.
The 2213 aluminum are 265 Gr and work well with 100 and 150 Gr tips, get those and you will not regret it – they even.
I orderednrhese crossbow bolts thinking they would come with everything. They didn’t. They did not come with tips or nocks, but they did come with the inserts for the tips and nocks in them already. You just have to order the tips and nocks seperately.
Engineered with advanced carbon materials to provide superior spine consistency and deliver the ultimate combination of speed, accuracy, and penetration. Factory fletched with 3″vanes. 20″bolts weigh 420 grains and 22″bolts weigh 449 grains (with 100 gr.
point). Inserts and moon nocks installed, includes flat nocks.
which are dead accurate within 50 yards. I started stretching the range all the way up to 80 yards and it took 3 or 4 shots to get ranged into within 4 inches of the bullseye. One day I decided to try the Carbon Express Maxima with the Excal’Axiom crossbow I have and first shot at 70 yards 3 inches from bullseye; 2nd shot at 80 yards, the same.
From the view of bolt in the scope it is obvious that they fly faster and straighter with much less fluttering. Great quarrel.
The Maxima Red SD arrow is constructed with a smaller diameter that provides lower wind drift and improved penetration. The front end is stiffer to distribute flex to the Red Zone, reducing sway in flight for greater broadhead accuracy.
Carbon Express uses ‘Adjusted Draw Weight’ while selecting the spine for the Red’s. They are one of few companies if any that does this as opposed to allowing the user to select spine off of a simple matrix style guide.
You would require the Carbon Express adjusted weight formula and an abacus to to determine your adjusted spine weight. The risk is selecting an underspined shaft which is what occurred in my case. I should point out that the Cabelas ‘pro’ agreed with my selection when I questioned the 250’s.
I was going to purchase more gold tips, or try the full metal jackets my friend likes. I read reviews on outdoor and bow hunting sites placing these in the upper range of good hunting arrows. I figured $15 more, why not, I’ll try em.
I’m not disappointed in the slightest, I had to move my 50 and 60 pins up from my gold tips, so it flys pretty flat. It hits hard, I could hear it in the target, and it penetrated at 40 enough I was a little worried about getting my arrow back from in the target.
I love this arrow, and will never go back. Sorry Goldtip, but you got beat.
I’m using these arrows with 500 spine for a couple of weeks now with a variety of traditional bows (27# scythian, 30# hunter recurve and 37# hungarian horse bow) and I never fail getting tight groups out of them in my usual 20-30 meters target range.
I also weighed the dozen I bought and they all measured between 326-332 grains with the 100 grain points and original length. Yes, the points are loose out of the box, as per product description, but as it was mentioned before, this can be fixed in about 5 mins with couple drops of blue glue.
I’m not a pro shooter, but after about 5k shots with them, I absolutely recommend them.
These came with my new recurve in one of 3 Rivers kits. They are serviceable arrows, but the fletching is poor. After only a week or 2 of practice, the bottom hen feathers are losing pieces, and I’ve had to re-glue a couple where they separated from shaft.
As noted by other reviews, the inserts appear off-sized and/or poorly glued. A pack of inserts was included in my order at no cost, as I guess 3R anticipates this issue. Other than that, they fly straight and are not showing any other signs of premature wear.
If you get them, plan to re-fletch and re-insert them after little use. For cheap practice or stumping arrows, probably a good option.
I was using cheap arrows I purchased from an online source and then I found these quality lower priced arrows. Wow, what a difference. Accuracy and consistency jump up quickly. The only con I have is the nock throat is rather small and I had to change them out for a larger throat nock.
