AXIS Arrow Recall (initially posted 2013)


The reason for this recall:

In a recent quality inspection, Easton discovered a blemish in the arrow surface that has a limited chance of affecting the structural integrity of affected AXIS arrow shafts. The arrows can break when fired and hit unintended targets, including the user and bystanders. This recall effects only a small percentage of four specific batch numbers from four sizes of AXIS arrows and arrow shafts.

If the consumer fails to heed Easton’s warning and instruction to inspect and flex test the shaft prior to each shot, and in certain specific locations and orientations relative to the bow, there is a very limited possibility that the region of the discontinuity or blemish might not withstand the loads and deflections of launch from the bow. If this were to occur, the arrow could fail upon launch and injure the archer or other persons in the vicinity.

The affected products shipped between February 21 and May 10, 2013 as follows:

Size Batch Number
