Tom Hall: Easton X10 vs. Carbon Express Nano Pro X-Treme

Tom Hall is an Olympic recurve archer and blogger from Great Britian. A longtime believer in the Easton X10 as the preferred arrow for competitive recurve archery, Hall recently pitted his X10s against the Carbon Express Nano Pro X-Tremes.

Hall started his experiment by comparing the physical properties of each arrow, and then he shot them over several months in varying conditions. What he discovered surprised him. It also led him to make the switch to the Carbon Express arrows for competitions.

You can read all about Hall’s testing in an article he posted on his blog, “The Archery Project.”

Easton X10 arrows break another archery record in Turkey

The Easton X10 arrow continued its dominance of Olympic archery by helping the Korean women’s team break another World Archery record in June 2016.


The Korean women scored a combined 2045 points at the third stage of the 2016 Hyundai Archery World Cup in Antalaya, Turkey, to beat the recurve women’s team ranking round world record by seven points.

Ki Bo Bae, Choi Misun and Chang Hye Jin all used Easton X10 arrows to break the world record mark, which was set in 2015 by the Korean women’s team. A perfect score is 2,160.


Every current recurve world record was set with Easton’s X10 arrow, which has also won every Olympic title since its introduction at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.
