THEY'RE BACK, BABY:
Since the discontinuation of the original Easton Whiteout shaft a couple years back, we have had more customers call in looking for this shaft than possibly any other product we offer. Unfortunately we were simply not able to help them out.... until Easton decided to bring the Whiteout back from the dead -new and improved- that is. Easton’s 6.5 Whiteout is the next evolution in hunting arrow aesthetics. Yes! This shaft is white from tip, to tip. Yes! I agree, it is a brilliant idea and the reason for it is simple. I, along with millions of other shooters in the world, have trouble seeing arrows in the target at a distance. The Easton Whiteout all but SOLVES this problem for me. How you ask? Well, because white is easy to spot down range and, as an added bonus, white also shows blood extremely well, and as a bonus-bonus... they just look amazing. With an all-white exterior finish and USA-Made uniform ACU Carbon construction, Whiteout offers high-visibility in flight and, like I said earlier, provides a blood indicator for shot-placement identification. We are so happy to have these back in the lineup. Grab them while they're hot!
Easton has been leading the way in hunting arrows since the 1940s. Their experience and technology shows in every product they produce. Easton shafts are used by more bowhunters, crossbow hunters, 3D competitors, target and Olympic archers than all than all the other brands combined. Numbers like that don't lie- Easton is top notch quality. Put your mind at ease and get some arrows from Easton, you won't be disappointed.
EASTON WHITE OUT :
STANDARDIZED ARROW SPINE/DEFLECTION CHARTS:
NOTE: Actual arrow spine deflections do not necessarily match the manufacturer's marketed spine sizes (Gold Tip 5575, Carbon Force 200, Carbon Express 60/75, etc.). Manufacturer spine sizing systems
may be arbitrary
(100, 200, 300, 400) and may or may not reflect the arrows' actual spine deflections. For example, a "Carbon Express Maxima 250" has an actual spine deflection of .404", not .250" as the sizing suggests. In this case, the rating system is arbitrary. To be safe, DO NOT assume an arrow's published spine size matches the arrow's actual deflection. See actual arrow specification data above before using this chart to select an appropriate spine stiffness for your bow. If you need help, call our pro-shop at 606-297-1011 or email us for assistance.
ABOUT OUR CUSTOM ARROW PROGRAM:
EVERY ARROW IS HAND BUILT FROM RAW SHAFTS`
Hand-building arrows allows us do things our big-box competitors cannot. Every raw shaft and its components are checked for flaws in manufacturing before assembly. Every shaft gets properly prepped and every fletch is hand-checked for proper adhesion. Then all nocks are oriented and each arrow is trimmed to your specifications on one of our 8,000 rpm high-speed arrow saws. We then install your inserts, practice tips and clean the arrows to remove any oils or glue residues. Finished arrow sets must then pass a thorough multi-point inspection before being cleared for shipment to our customers. We realize we're not building ballistic missiles here, but we're quite serious about our arrows. When your custom arrows arrive, we want you to be impressed. Our custom arrows are delivered at your exact specs and they're 100% ready-to-shoot. This is the kind of service you can only get from a real archery pro-shop, and we're proud to set a quality standard a machine simply can't match.
EVERY ARROW IS READY-TO-SHOOT`
Don't be fooled by the so-called "field ready arrows" offered at big-box stores. They are NOT
arrows. Big-box arrows are simply full length raw shafts which have been machine-fletched with the cheapest available materials (often overseas). They are certainly NOT ready for field use and their quality cannot compare with hand-built customs. Not to mention, the customer gets very little choice buying machine fletched pre-fabs. Most of the time, you just get whatever is in the box and you live with it. We think that's a pretty low standard. So beyond giving customers more quality and choice, we take it another step by also weighing and documenting every finished arrow set we build. Every completed arrow set comes with our exclusive arrow certification card, which details the exact finished weight and specs of your arrows. Should you ever need replacements, you'll have your original arrow specifications handy. Did we mention we're serious about arrows? If you haven't tried a set of matched custom arrows before, we think you'll be impressed from the very first shot.
WORK DONE JUST FOR YOU`
Custom arrows are BUILT AND CUT TO YOUR ACTUAL ORDER SPECIFICATIONS. Nothing is made in advance. No process begins until you place your order. But be advised, once we crack the eggs and start your
, we can't put it all back in the shell for someone else later. Custom arrows cannot be returned to stock. Once fletched, inserted, or trimmed to length, custom arrow orders cannot be cancelled, returned or exchanged - except in rare cases of manufacturer defects or shop-errors on the order. So be sure of your specifications before ordering. Once a custom set of arrows is built JUST FOR YOU, they're yours. Of course, if there's a legitimate problem, we'll happily stand behind our work and make things right. But we won't need to. We're going to make sure your arrows are awesome the first time around. You'll see ...
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? WHEN WILL I GET MY ARROWS?
The majority (about 94%) of our custom pro-shop orders are processed, built, inspected and shipped in 2-4 working days. In the slower months (Jan-July) we usually beat that average by a day. In the busier months (August-December) we tend to run an extra day. So all things considered, an official 1-5 day lead time is the most honest estimate we can offer. We know our customers are anxious to get their hands on the goods and get started, so we keep our heads down and get our orders out as quickly as we possibly can. If there is any kind of snag or exception, we'll let you know. But generally, it's safe to assume your custom pro-shop order will be on its way in a few working days. Our customer service email system will keep you alerted to your order status along the way. Actual FedEx delivery times will vary by distance from the pro-shop in Oil Springs, KY.
WHAT IS THIS "4 FLETCH" OPTION, AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Many bowhunters around the planet probably already know what the term "4-FLETCH" is referring to, but here is a quick explanation of how we do it as a "custom arrow option" here at the shop. The practice of adding a 4th fletching to an arrow has fallen out of popularity over the years but we still get the occasional request for the service. The vast majority of pre-fletched, or custom fletched arrows are equipped with only three vanes/feathers. One of the three vanes is designated as the "cock" fletch and the other two are known as "hens". Typically a standard THREE fletch arrow has two fletching colors, one color for the "cock" and one color for both the "hens". However! With a "4-FLETCH" we simply add a 4th vane/feather to your custom arrows by matching a 4th vane/feather to the type of fletching you selected on your order. For the color options, instead of having one fletch of one color and two of another, we will install two of one color and two of another. Essentially we are adding a second "cock" fletch to the arrow. If you would rather us use a different color scheme just leave us a note in the comment section of the order and we will do that instead.
NOTE: NOT ALL ARROW RESTS WILL WORK WITH A 4-FLETCH STYLE ARROW. THE OCTANE HOSTAGE WILL NOT WORK AT ALL BUT THE TROPHY RIDGE WHISKER BISCUIT, ALONG WITH ALL DROP AWAY STYLE ARROW RESTS WILL WORK FINE.
If you have any questions about this option at all, give us a call at 877-410-7811. "
A LITTLE HISTORY:
THE YEAR WE TRIED THE MACHINE
WHY GET LESS?
Seems you can always spot the guys who order their arrows from a big-box store - the hazy machine-sprayed glue, the hacksaw-trimmed shaft ends, the sloppy vane spacing, practice tips that don't match the shaft diameter, etc. Why do they do it? You don't really save money when you buy mass-produced prefletch arrows. In fact, you're usually getting a lot less for your money - less quality, less performance, less consistency & less success. The fact is, when it comes to making arrows, a machine just can't do what a skilled person can.
We learned this lesson the hard way.
We build a lot of arrows - thousands and thousands of sets per year. And quite frankly, we were looking for an easier and faster way to do the work, and perhaps pocket a bit more profit. So in early 2007, we decided to try our hand at automated fletching. At some great expense, we purchased a state-of-the-art fletching machine. It was fabulous. With all of its servo motors and little tubes and wires and moving armatures - it was sure to revolutionize our business. All we had to do was stick the arrow shaft into the fixture - load the vanes into the clamps - and push a button. A nozzle sprayed the shaft with glue and the clamps slammed shut. Bam! Two seconds later a fully fletched arrow popped right out. We had arrived! Our little Kentucky pro-shop was ready for the big time ... so we thought.
LETTING THE MACHINE DO THE WORK. EXCEPT ...
The machine could only fletch straight and offset vanes - helical turns and feathers were out. And even switching between straight and offset clamp angles required major machine surgery. But no problem. We were just going to play the averages. So we set the machine for a nice right offset, locked everything down and got right to work! We were thrilled. The machine was very cool to watch. Even the noise was captivating
... psssst, BAM, click, psssst, BAM, click, psssst, BAM, click.
This machine was going to do the work of ten men! And just as our managers started dreaming of all the time and labor hours we would save - and all the extra money we would make - we took the first batch of arrows to our quality inspector, Daniel Scott. They flatly failed. The vane spacing wasn't uniform. Some were too high, some too low, some too close together, some too far apart. And every arrow was a little different. To make matters worse, sometimes the glue was neat and tidy, sometimes it wasn't. Sometimes the vanes would adhere well, sometimes they wouldn't. And as we kept trying day after day, we noticed that the machine seemed to work better after lunch, but only on Tuesdays and Fridays. Some days we thought we had it figured out, and the next day we were back to square one. And no matter what we did in the back, Daniel was summarily unimpressed with the arrows we were making.
TOO PICKY? ARE YOU SERIOUS?
We spent weeks adjusting and tweaking on the machine - we adjusted the glue formula, the environmental conditions, the clamp settings, the line pressures, the angles of this, the clearances of that, etc. The machine's engineers even assisted us as we tirelessly tried to debug what was wrong. We were relentless - obsessed. The machine was working, but we still couldn't get it to reliably make arrows as good as the arrows we were making by hand. Finally, one of the engineers flatly told us that we were being "too picky". He explained that
"the machine was functioning exactly as it should, and a certain percentage of quality related rejects was to be expected."
HE WAS EXACTLY RIGHT! BINGO!
That was all we needed to hear. The experiment was over. We packed that machine back into its crate, made a deal to trade it (for a whopping loss) to some overstock broadheads at NAP, and that was the last machine fletched arrow to ever come from Hunter's Friend. To put it simply, the quality just wasn't good enough. It might cost a whole lot more to have real live arrow fletchers, but the product quality of a single conscientious technician well exceeds a machine. We'll never make that mistake again!
A BAFFLING SITUATION`
We started to wonder how it is even possible for big-box stores to peddle millions in pre-fletched arrows. Are customers simply not noticing they're getting the shaft (no pun intended)? If getting second-rate quality isn't bad enough, buying big-box prefletch arrows offers another technical challenge. The arrows are not trimmed to fit your bow. Most arrows come from the factory in full 30-33" uncut stock lengths. If you order arrows from a big-box store, that's exactly what you'll get, and it will be up to you to trim the arrows to length and install the inserts. And trimming high-density carbon arrows is one job that does require a proper machine. To properly trim a carbon arrow, you must use a high-speed 90Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â° abrasive cut-off wheel, which most consumers do not personally own. So you must either find a local archery shop willing to trim your arrows or use the arrows at full length. Unfortunately, shooting an excessively long arrow is detrimental on several levels. First, the extra length means extra arrow mass. But more importantly, the longer an arrow is, the less dynamic spine stiffness it has. So even if you follow the arrow spine selection charts to the letter, if you don't trim the shafts to the proper length, you'll effectively be shooting an underspined arrow - which will certainly fly and perform terribly (plus you'll look like a Goober with all that extra arrow shaft hanging over the shelf).
This naturally leads some customers to improvise with tubing cutters, jigsaws, Dremel rotary tools, and even hacksaws. Sometimes this turns out decent, but most of the time it's a disaster. When you attempt to cut a carbon arrow with the wrong tool, you momentarily crush the shaft, splintering the carbon fibers at the point of contact - dramatically weakening the arrow shaft. And even if you do manage a clean (looking) cut, you're likely not to have a square 90Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â° angle. So when you install your inserts, the flange doesn't properly seat against the cut end of the shaft and/or the insert goes in slightly off-angle (depending on how tight the insert fit is). As you might imagine, this dramatically degrades the accuracy of the arrow set because the tips/broadheads are quite literally all pointing in a slightly different direction.
FOLKS, YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THAT`
When you buy your arrows from Hunter's Friend, we include professional shaft trimming and insert installation free of charge. So when your arrows arrive, they're the correct length, they're squared-up, AND they're 100% ready-to-shoot. You won't have to wrestle with your hacksaw or those little paper-thin Dremel blades - or worse - be a Goober with a 33" arrow hanging out in front of your arrow rest.
PLUS YOU DON'T EVEN GET PRACTICE TIPS`
In addition to selling you a full length mass-production prefletch arrow, big box stores don't include practice tips with your arrow purchase. So assuming you know the right O.D. of the shafts you selected, you'll have to cough-up another $3-5 for target tips. But not here. Every arrow we sell comes with practice tips (field points) already installed. You choose the grain weight you prefer and we match the diameters to your shafts. So when you receive your arrows from Hunter's Friend, there's nothing else for you to buy or install. When you open your custom arrow box, your arrows are ready to shoot - right then. So when you start comparing prices, don't forget to account for the practice ammo.
BREAK IT DOWN`
We invite you to compare - compare what you're REALLY getting for your money. We might not always be the cheapest out there on a Google search, but then again, we shouldn't be. As you may be gathering, it's not an apples to apples comparison. We offer things the big-box stores simply cannot. Remember, big-box sporting goods stores do not focus on archery. The bulk of their profits come from imported hunting clothing (the reason the first 50 pages of their catalogs are exclusively clothing items). Archery is just a seasonal side-dish for the big-box stores. But here at Hunter's Friend, archery is ALL we do. So of course we do archery better than the big boxes. Give us a chance and we'll show you.
