Micro-diameter arrows aren’t new, but they definitely are getting better and better. Enter the 2023 Carbon Express Maxima Photon SD. Fabricated from a custom weave of 30-ton carbon, Carbon Express engineers have found the arrow recovers 25 percent faster out of the bow, leading to superior downrange accuracy. Thanks to its .203-inch inner diameter, the Photon minimizes wind drift and allows the arrow to track seamlessly behind the broadhead. It’s available in spine sizes of 300, 350 and 400 and, of course, features the tried-and-true Red Zone, the arrow shaft section engineered to contain a Dynamic Spine that helps broadheads shoot more consistently. $249.99 per 12 (shafts), $134.99 per 6 (fletched) | feradyne.com/carbon-express

Meanwhile, the Black Sky 2.0 — engineered for high-speed crossbows without a rail — feature 2-inch Blazer vanes. Both bolts come with 100-grain Bohning premium fieldpoints and half-moon nocks. The vanes are also available in 36- and 100-piece packs for archery hunters who prefer to fletch their own bolts. $59.99 per 3 | bohning.com


What A Pair! — Ramcat Hemoshock & Hemoshock DP Broadheads

Ramcat Hemoshock DP

Many bowhunters choose Ramcat Broadheads because of Air Foil Technology, a tried-and-true innovation that ups downrange accuracy via a concave scoop ferrule tip design. For 2023, Air Foil remains, but Ramcat has added Firenock Aero Concentric Technology (F.A.C.T.) to its new Hemoshock & Hemoshock DP (Deep Penetration) mechanical broadheads. Combined, the two technologies boost accuracy and allow the heads to hit exceedingly hard due to the air mass they create. The 2-blade Hemoshock features a 2.25-inch cutting surface, while the 3-blade Hemoshock DP features a 2-inch cutting surface and a narrower blade angle designed to maximize penetration for archers with lower draw weights and/or draw lengths. These 100-grain heads will be available in May 2023. $44.99 per 3 | ramcatbroadheads.com

Featuring a 1.1875-inch cutting diameter and an overall cutting surface of more than 3 inches, Trophy Taker says the Maverick still offers the quiet flight and deadly accuracy Shuttle T-LOK shooters have come to expect. $44.99 per 3 | trophytaker.com
