First Look: Easton Sonic Helical-Fletched Arrows

Mainhelical Fletched

Helical fletching on arrow shafts can yield massive dividends for broadhead stabilization. This is likely one of the reasons helical fletching is a top-requested feature in custom-built arrows. Now, bowhunters can get this enhancement without added expense and wait times, thanks to the Easton Sonic 6.0 6mm carbon arrow, which comes with an industry-first factory helical fletch. Two-inch high-performance Easton Bully Vanes, powered by Bohning, have a universal right-helical compatible with virtually all broadhead configurations and hunting bows.

The Sonic itself is a new hunting shaft constructed with Easton’s ultra-lightweight Acu-carbon, and made in its Utah facility. Sonic’s lightweight design offers versatility, giving archers the ability to configure for speed setups or add available brass inserts to boost accuracy-building FOC.

Sonic 6.0 shafts come in six hunting-spine values ranging from a 250 to a 600 size, to match nearly any hunting rig. For more information, check out
