Easton Arrows: Built for Precision, Made in the USA

Since 1922, Easton Archery has been designing, testing, building, selling and shipping arrows.

All from within the United States of America.

“When you can engineer something, build it and then test it all in the same place, that’s when you are able to build the best products possible,” said Gary Cornum Easton’s director of marketing.

There is no disconnect between the engineers and the manufacturing, so, if problems arise, they can be identified quickly and improvements can be made on the spot.

The 300 American workers Easton employs in its various divisions, and at Delta McKenzie, are part of the American machine that keeps Easton and the country focused on success.

“In this day and age, there’s a lot of interest from consumers in buying American made products,” Cornum said. “We’ve been doing that for almost 100 years.”

Take Easton’s revolutionary Acu-Carbon process, for example. It epitomizes what happens when an American company employs American workers to build products in the U.S.

Nearly all of Easton’s carbon arrows are made with the Acu-Carbon process, in which carbon is applied continuously to a single mandril, without any seam. When the carbon shaft reaches a certain length, it is cut to produce a single arrow shaft.

By using the continuous, seamless process on a single mandril – and by doing all of its engineering, testing and building with American workers at American facilities – Easton can produce the most consistent arrows on the market.

“Whether it’s arrow number one or number 10,000, you know it’s going to weigh the same and have the same spine consistency,” Cornum said.

The crisscross weave is Easton’s new signature look for its Acu-Carbon arrows, like these 6.5mm Matrix, so customers can see the continuous weave used to make them.

That consistency is critical for several reasons. Archery demands consistency. The archer has to do everything exactly the same from shot to shot to produce consistent results. If the archer’s arrows vary in spine and weight from one arrow to the next, consistent performance is nearly impossible, regardless of the archer’s actions.

Also, let’s say an archer has one dozen Easton 5mm Axis that he’s been shooting for a year or so. A couple get lost or broken, and now it’s time to buy another dozen. That archer knows the next dozen Easton 5mm Axis he buys will precisely match the ones he’s replacing because of the consistency of the building process. So there’s no issue putting the new dozen arrows into his quiver along with the few he has left from his original dozen.

“If there’s a bowhunter out there shooting Easton Axis arrows, and they’re wondering where they came from, they can know that their arrows were made right here in Salt Lake City,” Cornum said.

(Easton makes aluminum arrows in Salt Lake City too. Check out the video below.)
