Re: bolt diameter

I'm not aware of any carbon shafts that are the proper diameter. Wish I could be of more help.

Re: bolt diameter

if you are sticking with alum arrows, the 2117 size is a great fit for GT II componets....i have easton 2117 XX75 camo hunters with 110gr brass inserts that weigh 550gr for the GT II arrows with FOC of 21.4% that fly dead on with slick trick 125's to POA out to 50 yards..........bob

Re: bolt diameter

arrowhead what about the firebolts...they are a big shaft...and also line jammers(vertical bow)...firebolts came with my excal and they are real close to 22 series shaft...maybe im giving the shaft thing too much thought.....

I didn't understand the post correctly. I thought you were looking for compound arrow shafts that were the same diameter as a crossbow shaft. There are no carbon shafts made for compounds that I know of that match a crossbow arrow's diameter.
