Axis arrows have emerged as a preferred all-around arrow for bowhunters looking to take down big game.

Introduced in 2004, Axis uses made-in-USA carbon for durability and speed, but hunting-camp talk often centers on their ability to out penetrate regular arrows.

The Axis micro profile reduces friction both in flight and through the animal. That increases downrange speed and penetration going through the target.

“It penetrates deeper as the shaft passes through with less friction behind the broadhead channel,” said Gary Cornum, Marketing Manager for Easton, in a press release. “Millions of successful hunts testify to the awesome effectiveness of a simple concept that equates to more downed big game—it’s like magnum ammunition for your bow.”


The small diameter helps Axis arrows fly much better in crosswinds than regular carbon arrows. That means broadheads will find the aim-point more often in the field.


Axis comes in spine sizes ranging from 700 to 260 to fit any bowhunter and is available in the NEW Axis SPT for lower poundage bows. To see Easton’s complete line of small-diameter hunting arrows, visit www.eastonarchery.com.
