Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 17 reviews

Visit the Evolusion Arrows website.

The Raptor™ by Evolusion Arrows® is a true all-rounder in the 6.2mm ID arrow category.

It's a pure carbon arrow so it's stronger and offers a more consistent, matched dozen than many arrows at more expensive price-points.

  • Bowhunters can shoot a high FOC arrow with the Raptor™.
    Better accuracy - more successful hunts.

  • 3D archers who want to shoot an arrow closer to the 5 gpp threshold will appreciate the gpi (grains per inch) specs of the Raptor™.

  • Low-poundage shooters will love the flat-shooting 500 and 600 spine variations of the Raptor, that make no sacrifice to durability.

Sold in 12-packs.

Nocks and inserts are included.
Nocks can be indexed for the release aid or finger shooter.


  • Evolusion Xpert Field Points can be found here.
  • Saunders points in 19/64 or 5/16" OD can be found here.

    you will win gold with these arrows

    purchased these arrows just over a week before ABA national safari.

    even tho these are not the best tolerance arrows when building them i didnt have any that were wobbly when spinning bare shafts. and with only shooting them to quickly sight in with a brand new bow still won a gold medal in the 3D mens freestyle unlimited..

    durable as well, i am not using uni bushings and with multiple near Robin hoods not one shaft has broken.

    awesome arrow, can not fault them

    I just wanted to add a pic of a recent 6-arrow group I shot @30m (and fwiw I've been shooting well under a year, and was using a junxing phoenix).

    Quality and durability

    Purchased the Evolusion Raptor shafts .005 in 600 Spine for my wife Oct 2020 who was just starting out in Archery. The Raptor shafts are pleasantly weight matched and come with perfectly fitted Nocks and matched Inserts ready to install. They performed so well for her matched with Q2 Fusion Vanes that I happily purchased another set for her for Xmas and then had to buy another 2 sets soon after as my daughter decided to take up the sport as well and quickly stole Mum’s spare set. Daughter’s are fletched with Bohning Airs and she also couldn’t be happier with the results and how well they shoot for her. No doubt they will both be looking to upgrade to .003 shafts next purchase. I also know at least another 5 shooters that are also happy with the Evolusion Raptors in various spines and straightness and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for others. The Evolusion range availability, quality and durability not to mention the price are a winner in my book.
