Whether you're looking for new and improved inserts, bright new nocks, economical fliers, or those dripping with FOC-boosting features, the to-come list doesn't disappoint.
Easton Premier Half-Out Components for 4mm Arrows
For 2024, Easton sweetens its already ultra-sweet 4mm shafts with the addition of all-new Half-out Components. The new Half-outs were developed based on intel gathered from top archers and industry pro shops. These top-of-the-line Half-out posts feature a machined post fitted with an impact collar for boosted strength and overall durability. The patent-pending design also ensures zero-tolerance self-centering alignment to the shaft. Plus, the new configuration adds coverage over the post, and the post slides up further on the arrow's front end. This design increases impact protection. New Half-outs are available in 55-grain aluminum, 75-grain half steel, 100-grain titanium steel, and 150-grain full steel.

Tri-Spine Technology blends carbon sections with stiffer sections on each distal end to ensure a more forgiving center section that allows faster arrow recovery out of the bow. Precision sorted and matched by weight and spine, arrow-to-arrow consistency is guaranteed, and the robust Bull Dog nock collar system, uber-accurate Launchpad nocks, and precise inserts promise performance. Both arrows are available in 12-pack shafts or 6-pack fletched options.

Doubletake Archery HALO Nock
I have a love/hate relationship with lighted nocks. I love it when they pave a lighted path toward my target and make finding my arrow easy. I hate them when they break and don't function properly. Promising advanced features, the all-new HALO Nock from Doubletake Archery was engineered with what Doubletake calls "no fail" performance. The lighted nock showcases a sleek, streamlined profile that is bowstring-activated. However, unlike other bowstring-activated nocks, the HALO won't inadvertently turn on when you push your nock onto the string, even if you try to make it turn on. Installation is simple; no assembly or tools are needed to turn the nock off. The HALO comes in multiple colors and is waterproof and bloodproof.
