Arrow offerings designed to drive a very important point home — delivering broadheads on target with every shot.

6 Killer Hunting Arrows

The recent evolution in arrow enhancement is nothing short of miraculous — with new models pushing technology and design boundaries to their outer limits. And with modern compound and horizontal bows generating velocities and energy unimagined just a few years ago, it has become more important than ever to have a firm understanding of how proper arrow selection can squeeze every bit of efficiency and accuracy from those speed demons. Here are a half-dozen bulletproof examples to get you on the right trajectory.

 

Carbon Express D-Stroyer PileDriver

Carbon Express has expanded its D-Stroyer series by adding some weight, with the D-Stroyer PileDriver — the heaviest arrow in the Carbon Express line, designed to create maximum kinetic energy and deliver greater knockdown power. Dual Spine Weight Forward technology reduces arrow oscillation by half for twice the accuracy of a single-spine shaft for superior stabilization and exceptional broadhead flight. Its K-360 outer layer construction integrates 100 percent high-modulus carbon weave for consistent spine strength and durability throughout the shaft’s entire length for increased shaft-to-shaft consistency. With an internal diameter of .244-inch, these shafts fit standard components and include premium inserts and Launchpad arrow nocks. Available in 300, 350 and 400 spines.

MSRP: $119.99/12-pack fletched arrows; $64.99/Six-pack fletched arrows

Easton Archery 4mm Axis Long Range

New for 2021, Easton Archery’s 4mm Axis Long Range offers bowhunters even more of what they want in a micro-diameter arrow — delivering more speed to the target and deeper penetration as the shaft passes through with less friction behind the broadhead channel. Made in Easton’s Utah factory, the Axis Long Range is engineered with specialized carbon fiber to increase arrow velocity, and pre-installed 4mm nocks and front-of-center boosting 8-32 half-outs are included to help tighten arrow grouping. The 4mm Axis Long Range is available in four sizes — 250, 300, 340 and 400 — in both standard straightness and ultra-precise ±.001 Match Grade.

MSRP: $105.99/Six-pack fletched (standard straightness)

Ravin Heavy-Duty Lighted

The new Ravin Heavy Duty (HD) 500-grain lighted arrow (inclusive of 100-grain field tip or broadhead) has a straightness tolerance of .001-inch and is Ravin’s most premium crossbow arrow. The HD arrow has a high-impact brass-threaded insert, high-impact aluminum nock bushing, Ravin-engineered polymer nock and 2-inch offset vanes. The Lighted HD arrow comes in a three-pack and utilizes Lumenok technology. Match-grade arrows compensate for the added weight of lighted nocks and weigh the same as Ravin non-lighted arrows for the same flight accuracy. Use only Ravin-branded arrows with Ravin clip-on nocks.

MSRP: $119.99/Three pack
