NEW Easton RX7- The Ultimate Indoor Recurve Arrow Shaft
Easton tapered technology allows a bigger line-catcher arrow at lower bow and point weight
New for the 2020 indoor season, Easton announces the most accurate, technically advanced indoor arrow shaft ever devised for recurve finger shooters- the all-new RX7 series.
Available in three spine values- 525, 475, and 420- in a 21, 22, and maximum 23 diameter, spanning recurve bow weights from 30-52# and draw lengths from 23 to 32.5”.
The 21 diameter uses Easton 2114 points and UNI bushings, the 22 uses 2214 points and UNI bushings, and the 23 uses 2315 points and the Super UNI bushing in the same size.
Easton’s new RX7 series 7178 aluminum arrow shafts incorporate a precision rear taper – effectively letting recurve shooters shoot a bigger arrow at a lower bow weight, and also with less point weight, while maintaining maximum shaft diameter for higher scoring potential.
Proven in the 2018-19 competition season by some of the top archers in the world, like Team USA’s Brady Ellison and Jack Williams, the RX7 is based on the same proven design principle as Easton’s X10 and A/C/E shafts, with the precision flexible, forgiving rear taper.
Williams said: “The rear tapered design of the RX7 creates the most forgiving aluminum arrow for a recurve archer. It allows archers to use a lighter point weight to achieve the proper tune, creating a faster release and better arrow flight.”
This design element drops the dynamic spine of the arrow shaft by up to one full size, which allows the use of a larger diameter and lighter point.
Until now, many shooters seeking maximum diameter arrow shafts often needed to compromise the bow tune, and potentially compromise shooting technique forgiveness, by using super-heavy points, leading to greater error potential with slight natural release inconsistencies.
By using a normal weight point, and a precision engineered, more flexible rear taper with a weight-forward design, RX-7 series shafts provide the ultimate in finger release forgiveness. RX7 uses full-strength 7178-T9 alloy that easily copes with tough European target materials.
For example, the RX7-23 has a spine of 0.420, compared to a spine of 0.342 for the equivalent Easton X23 2315 shaft. As an example, this allows the RX7 23-420 to be tuned with an Easton 2315 NIBB point, at a normal shaft length. Compare this to the X23 2315, which is often tuned by recurve shooters with a heavy, 200 or 300 grain aftermarket point, at a longer than normal shaft length. The RX7 shafts are supplied with Easton Super UNI bushings, which accept Super Nocks, 3D Super Nocks, and the popular Beiter size 19 nock.
