Doug Easton began his archery company in 1922. His enterprise started out with him in his workshop making handcrafted wood arrows and longbows one at a time. The arrows featured Doug’s own signature cresting applied to the finest hand-selected cedar shafting he could find.
Indeed, Easton’s woodgrain Axis is a nod to Doug’s meticulous commitment to crafting the finest traditional equipment available in that era. In addition to the retro look, the Axis Traditional has a long list of performance features as well. Stick-bow shooters will appreciate a micro-diameter shaft that adds hunting penetration by reducing friction through hide and bone. But what sets the Axis Traditional apart the most is the classic woodgrain look of the made-in-USA carbon shafting. “We really wanted to make the Axis Traditional something special by tapping into our 95-year legacy,” Cornum continued. “We took some of Doug’s 1920’s-era wood arrows—borrowing from his original cresting colors—and used them to inspire the design for the Axis banding.”
The made-in-USA Axis Traditional comes with bone color nocks and aluminum inserts included. Available brass inserts will add weight upfront for archers looking to boost FOC.
