Easton’s 100 Year History Shows in New Carbon Legacy Arrow
Traditional shooters will want to check out the Easton Carbon Legacy. The new Legacy builds on Easton’s 100- year tradition of making the world’s finest archery tackle. When Doug Easton first began his archery company in 1922, he started out making handcrafted wood arrows and longbows one at a time in his small workshop. Each arrow featured Doug’s own signature cresting applied to the finest hand-selected cedar shafting. Today’s traditional Legacy is a nod to Doug’s meticulous commitment to crafting the finest traditional equipment available in that era. The Legacy combines the traditional look of wood-grained carbon with high-visibility white- dipped and hand-feather-fletched craftsmanship to offer the finest vintage aesthetic. “We really wanted to make the Carbon Legacy something special,” stated Gary Cornum, Easton Marketing Director. “We went back into our archives and found some of Doug’s 1920’s arrows and borrowed ideas from his original wood shafts to inspire the look we were going for.”
Loaded with features the traditional enthusiast will value, the Legacy comes fletched with three 4” left wing helical feathers including a barred index feather with combinations of solid red, white, and bright yellow hen feathers. The Carbon Legacy is accurate, durable, and has exceptional flight visibility. Legacy is available in five popular hunting sizes (340, 400, 500, 600, and 700). Includes RPS inserts and pre-installed 6.5mm 3D Super Nocks.

The company’s D-1™ Trigger is a 2-stage, zero-creep design that includes a new DFP™ (Dry-Fire-Prohibitor) and delivers a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull.

NEW Delta BIG 8™—The Perfect Target for Serious Archery
Delta-McKenzie is now shipping the innovative Big 8 target, the latest development from premium foam Backyard Series targets.
Big 8 features an innovative hexagon shape that provides eight shooting faces. The asymmetric target design greatly increases usable life with any type of bow or crossbow. Big 8’s geometry provides a larger shooting area versus conventional square targets giving shooters confidence to stretch the distance without fear of missing the target.
Delta’s Big 8 also utilizes a new premium competition- grade “self-healing” foam, developed in conjunction with the ASA Pro 3D tournament circuit. This new foam withstands even heavy tournament use, lasting up to 8-times longer, while maintaining a lower pull force for easier arrow or bolt extraction.
The Big 8 target is both field point and broadhead compatible, and is speed rated for all high-performance bows and crossbows.
Available in a highly portable 16” size, or the long- distance-effective 20” model. Both models are self- supporting with no need for a target stand—just drop and shoot.
Easy target acquisition, regardless of pin color, is provided with green and white shooting spots. All Big- 8 targets also include a sight-in grid, integrated carry handles, and the 20-inch model adds a replaceable core design to further extend the life of your target.
