Gidgee Sticks Carbon Fibre Arrow Shafts
MicroDiameter Carbon Fibre Arrow Shafts Benefits
A narrower overall diameter on the arrow shaft has several benefits.
Firstly it provides the arrow with a thicker wall to achieve the same spine rating as other diametre arrows, the thicker wall increases the arrows GPI.
- Extra weight in the shaft combined with the slimline stature provides more resistance to
movement on windy days.
- Extra wieght in the shaft combined with teh slimline stature also provides increased penetration
due to higher momentum and reduced surface area, especially when passing though bones.
- Overall Strength of the arrow is improved due to the thicker walls ability to resist damage from the
sides, combine this with the strength of a Stainless Steel Outsert, you will have one extremely
BENEFITS OF ARROW HIGH FOC
Building an arrow with a high FOC(Foward of Centre) can greatly assist with arrow penetration and down stream arrow flight. Having the weight in the front of the arrow, means that the shaft is pulled through both the target and the air from the front rather than the rear of the shaft. When the arrow strikes the target, the inertia of the weight forward pulling the shaft through the target equates to minimal flex of the shaft as it enters, this will aid increasing arrow penetration. When an arrow has a lower FOC, ie lighter Inserts and Broadheads etc, the weight of the arrow shaft itself is what pushes the Broadhead through the target, This pushing action can cause more flex in the arrow. This extra flex in the arrow when it strikes the target, can increase the resistance because the arrow being bent out of shape, which in turn can reduce your penetration. In some cases, reduced penetration can greatly reduce your chances of recovering your Target Animal.
