Just the Facts:

From Easton Site:
SPINE

Easton arrows, produced with our advanced technology and manufacturing processes, deliver uniform spine between all arrow shafts of the same size, and 360 degrees around each shaft. With Easton, you know that your next arrow will fly like the last.

STRAIGHTNESS

Our straightness measurements are actual, and surpass, with a far more stringent straightness requirement, ATA/ASTM industry standard. We measure straightness based on the full length of the shaft, minus two inches, which makes Easton arrows the most accurate in the industry. What we say is what you get — and better.

WEIGHT

Accuracy requires weight consistency. Different weights will cause arrows to hit higher or lower. We adhere to strict weight tolerances in every arrow we manufacture, guaranteeing consistent arrow performance. Whether you’re aiming for gold, or bearing down on a trophy elk, you know that the critical shot you’re about to take will be as perfect as your practice shot

Story:
I got a new bow this year and have been trying some new arrows out. I hunt mostly elk and deer in Colorado high country. I need a very accurate arrow with tons of KE. After talking to several people and doing a little research. I picked up a dozen Easton FMJ and fletched them up with my E-Z fletch.

I was quickly impressed with the penetration I was getting. An extra bonus was how easy they’re to pull out of 3D and block type targets. They take roughly 50% less effort to pull. At first I was getting decent accuracy. After bumping up my FOC (12.5%) with 125 gr field points it really tighten my groups up.

After a couple hundred shots with these. I started noticing my groups widening. I did a quick spin tested and found a disheartening trend. Almost all of the arrows were slightly bent at the tip. None of these arrows had seen anything but direct hits on targets.

The Easton FMJ is a deadly arrow but be prepared to spend some money on having extras laying around for hunting season. I’ll keep the few straight one around if I ever draw a buffalo tag but will be finding a more durable arrow.

(Easton FMJ 350, 29”, 125 field pt,) (70 lb Bowtech Assassin 29” draw.)


What they could do better:
Figure out the durability, disappointing to have bent arrows when only shot at targets.
