Evolusion - Raptor 3D and Hunting Arrow .005

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 13 reviews

The Raptor™ by Evolusion Arrows® is a true 'all-rounder' in the .2445 ID (6.2mm ID) arrow category.

Its is a pure carbon arrow with no cheap filler material like many other arrows on the market, in the same price-point.
So it's stronger and offers a superior 'matched' dozen.

  • Bowhunters can have the perfect hunting arrow with high FOC - the 300 spine arrow being the standout choice for this scenario.
  • 3D archers who want to shoot an arrow closer to 5 gpp will appreciate the 'mid-weight' gpi characteristics of the Raptor™ shaft across the 350, 400, 500 and 600 spines.
  • Low-poundage shooters will love the flat-shooting 5.6 gpi 600 spine variation of the Raptor.

Sold in 12-packs.

    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.
