New Arrows for 2022

Arrow selection to suit your bow setup is a very important decision. This year, you've got a lot of options to choose from!

New Arrows for 2022

Easton 5MM FMJ Autumn Orange 100 Year Limited Edition

Few choices in the exciting archery world are more critical than arrow selection. Why? The arrow leaves the bow, flies, and makes contact (via the point) with the target/animal. When choosing an arrow, you must consider spine, straightness, overall weight, diameter, design, and the list goes on. Here are some of 2022's top fliers. Make your pick and have a banner year.

The 5MM FMJ Autumn Orange is available in spine sizes of 250, 300, 340, and 400. HIT inserts are included, and 5MM X Nocks are installed. $119.99 6-pack fletched | eastonarchery.com
