Introduced in 2004, Axis arrows have emerged as the go-to for bowhunters seeking increased penetration on big game. Although Axis utilizes state-of-the-art carbon for increased durability and speed, most of the hunting-camp talk centers on their ability to out penetrate regular arrows.
To achieve that penetration, the Axis micro profile focuses kinetic energy into an ultra-small frontal area for less friction and greater penetration. “It penetrates deeper as the shaft passes through with less friction behind the broadhead channel,” said Gary Cornum, Marketing Manager for Easton. “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,” Cornum said.
The small diameter also means that 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 is easily found in pro shops and retailers across the nation. Micro Axis arrows come in 5MM diameter and the NEW 6MM Under Armour.
