Traditional Complete Carbon Arrow – Fluo Series
If you’re looking for a tough, bright and affordable traditional carbon arrow then look no further! Tested to the extreme over four years by our team we are more than satisfied with these sticks. And they’re an economical choice too: Fletched with right-wing 4″ turkey shield cut feathers and a standard inner diameter of 6.2mm it is super easy to find spare parts in most archery shops in New Zealand (and from us of course).
The fluo-arrows come in standard 30″ length and include a 100grain screw in point that you can swap for other weights or point types.
These arrows are suitable for target archery, 3D archery and small game hunting.

The fluo series is part of our signature range. We looked long for a tough and bright arrow to use with our popular Dragon Hunt Adventure where we take mainly beginners onto our 3D archery course in a rocky valley. We use the 700 spine version of this arrow and they survive a lot of tough abuse and are easy to spot when the target has been missed.
We have tested this shaft rigorously to make sure the carbon fibres are cross woven. This means the inner part of the carbon tube is spun using an endless carbon thread that runs around and upwards and the outer carbon fibres are in a 90degree angle to the inner ones. This makes the arrow a lot tougher as it can resist impact better but it also makes it safer: The most dangerous thing in archery is when an arrow breaks at release. This arrow will usually break clean and straight, which can still cause an injury – but the design provides a good level of protection from thin and sharp carbon splinters lodging under the skin. This is a big and dangerous issue found in most other cheap carbon arrows that have all carbon fibres running in a straight line forward only.
But remember: always flex before you shoot to identify any issues!
