First Look: Easton 6.5 Hunter Classic Arrow

posted on May 12, 2020
Easton has introduced a new carbon arrow, called the 6.5 Hunter Classic. Designed around Easton's proprietary Acu-Carbon Uniform Spine, which is a continuous-fed, single-die manufacturing method, Hunter Classic arrow shafts are consistent enough to eliminate the need for spine alignment and weight sorting. 

Additionally, the 6.5 Hunter Classic includes upgraded 6.5mm inserts, constructed using a 4x-larger shoulder for added strength. For attachment to the bowstring, Microlight Nocks are installed, which move the throat of the nock closer to the rear of the arrow shaft, increasing shot consistency. Finally, the Hunter Classic utilizes Bully Vane fletching, a stiffer material for increased control and a quieter arrow flight.

For more information on the Easton 6.5 Hunter Classics, which are available in spine sizes of either 300, 340, 400 or 500, please visit
