Easton's exclusive tapered technology allows a bigger line-catcher arrow at lower bow and point weight.
New for the 2020 indoor season, Easton announces the most accurate, technically advanced indoor arrow shaft ever devised for recurve finger shooters, the all-new RX-7 series.
Available in three spine values, 525, 475, and 420, in a 21, 22, and World Archery Maximum 23 diameter.
Easton's new RX-7 series 7178 aluminum arrow shafts incorporate a precision rear taper - effectively letting recurve shooters shoot a bigger arrow at a lower bow weight, and also with less point weight, while maintaining maximum shaft diameter for higher scoring potential.
Proven in the 2018-19 competition season by some of the top archers in the world, including Team USA's Brady Ellison and Jack Williams, the RX-7 is based on the same proven design principle as Easton's X10 and A/C/E shafts, with the precision flexible, forgiving rear taper.
Williams said: "The rear tapered design of the RX-7 creates the most forgiving aluminum arrow for a recurve archer. It allows archers to use a lighter point weight to achieve the proper tune, creating a faster release and better arrow flight."
This design element drops the dynamic spine of the arrow shaft by up to one full size, which allows the use of a larger diameter and lighter point.
Until now, many shooters seeking maximum diameter arrow shafts often needed to compromise the bow tune, and potentially compromise shooting technique forgiveness, by using super-heavy points, leading to greater error potential with slight natural release inconsistencies.
By using a normal weight point, and a precision engineered, more flexible rear taper with a weight-forward design, RX-7 series shafts provide the ultimate in finger release forgiveness. RX-7 uses full-strength 7178-T9 alloy that easily copes with tough European target materials.
For example, the RX-7-23 has a spine of 0.420, compared to a spine of 0.342 for the equivalent Easton X23 2315 shaft. As an example, this allows the RX-7-23 420 to be tuned with an Easton 2315 NIBB point, at a normal shaft length. Compare this to the X23 2315, which is often tuned by recurve shooters with a heavy, 200 or 300 grain aftermarket point, at a longer than normal shaft length. RX-7 shafts are supplied with Easton Super-UNI bushings, which accept available Easton Super Nocks, 3D-Super Nocks, and the popular size 19 Beiter nock.

RX-7 shafts are 100% Made in the USA.
