This past week I got a look at the new stuff Easton had coming out for 2013. Some of the line is staying the same but there are some changes. The ST Excel is being replaced by an arrow called the Aftermath, still using the H-nock and having some different graphics. Straightness for these will be .005.
The Bloodlines will now be offered in a camo version. I think Realtree and also Lost Camo.
There is a new arrow called the Hexx (but the “e” in Hexx is backwards). Uses the H nock and has a .001 straightness tolerance, kinda gray looking (swampy graphics). It is designed to be a faster arrow (330 spine weighs in at 7.9gpi). Nock to weigh in at 9g and the insert at 9g as well.
Also a new arrow called “Da Torch”, another speed arrow.
Then, for the heavier weight hunting arrow guys, they will introduce an Axis Traditional with a simulated wood look with the old Easton diamond logo on it. These look really good. The picture in the catalog shows them outfitted with red and white barred feathers looking cool and old school, but I do not think you will be able to buy them that way. Not sure how they will come. They are a carbon arrow made to look like a cedar shaft with some very good graphics. The 340 spine arrows weigh in at 10.3gpi for these.
Since they don’t come with the barred feathers, I wondered if anyone knew if anyone made any vanes that were made to look like barred feathers?
I think Easton dropped a couple of lines.
They also introduced a pink and white option for the Ion line, which my little one said she liked.

Send it to me in a PM and I’ll send some out.
I can match left and right primarys but may need a couple weeks to
Plastic barred veins are a lot more consistent and easier to work with
but if you want to the real deal let me know.
