The new lightweight Velocity XT ($100) is designed for speed. Like all Gold Tip arrows, the Velocity XT is built by rolling pre-preg carbon fibers onto a mandrel, a process that uses less resin than do many other carbon-shaft-building processes. "The more resin used in a shaft, the poorer the shaft's memory," Gold Tip's Tim Gillingham said.
"An arrow shaft with memory will shoot more accurately and last longer than a shaft with lots of resin and other materials. Our arrows have great memory, which means they will maintain their accuracy even after thousands of shots." Available in spines of 300, 400, and 500, the Velocity XT weighs 8.3 gpi. Straightness tolerance is +/- .003", weight tolerance +/- 2.0 grains.
