The heavy Bodkin Arrows (marked by an additional stainless-steel ring) are designed for our limbs with higher draw weights (90 to 150 lb). They have a high-quality aluminum nock and a hybrid carbon/aluminum shaft, meaning there is an aluminum core running inside the carbon shaft. This complex structure offers outstanding flight characteristics and makes the arrows extremely robust. At a weight of 228 grains, these arrows are considerably heavier than most pistol crossbow arrows and strike their target with high momentum. They can more easily penetrate hard target materials like metal sheeting or glass.
