Easton has developed industry-leading arrows and archery equipment for more than 90 years. Its latest creation, the Deep Six XD, expands Easton’s line of deep-penetrating micro-diameter arrows. This arrow uses an innovative, easy-to-install stainless-steel Deep Six RPS insert that’s 65 percent stronger than conventional aluminum inserts. In addition, a low profile and concentrated mass made from high-strength carbon-composite fibers allows the shaft to carry more energy to the target, assuring pass-through performance on game.
