Most Accurate Crossbow Arrows for Sale
Designed for high performance crossbows and ultimate consistency.
Every Shot. Always the same.
Unmatched takedown power.
You deserve the best.
Cutting corners has never been an option when building the most accurate crossbow arrows.
With optimal front-of-center balance you will have tighter groupings and deeper penetration on your target.
Correct spine synchronization is the most important accuracy factor. Our techs use precision tooling to find the low and high spine of the carbon shafts.
Precision tools are used on all arrows to square ends.
Choosing the correct angle of fletching is critical building an arrow that flies the same as the others in the set. Our techs use a micrometer to ensure the ultimate precision when building crossbow arrows.
Our Premium Firenock 4K Arrows are matched within 1 grain of the other arrows in the set.
This feature is included at no extra charge.
We match the best carbon shaft for your crossbow’s draw weight and draw length.
1. Static Spine Selection and 2. Spine Indexing
Static spine matching is often confused with spine indexing. Spine matching is all about deflection, or the stiffness of the bolt. It is important to match the stiffness of the bolt to the poundage and draw stroke of the crossbow,that is why we use a selection of bolts including Gold Tip, Black Eagle, and Firenock. Basically like you would do with a vertical bow. Spine indexing has to do with locating the stiff, and weak spot on the bolt. Spine indexing is the most important accuracy factor in custom bolts. Extremely sensitive tooling is needed to accurately define “low, and high” spine in a carbon shaft, and all carbon shafts have a low and high spine. Our research has shown that group shooting off of a shooting machine at 25 yards, with 6 bolts that have been spine indexed vs 6 bolts with factory fletching. The bolts that were spine indexed averaged a 68% tighter group.
The next precision element of Custom Bolts is that of front-of-center (FOC). The FOC refers to the balance point of a bolt. The percentage of FOC indicates what percent the balance point is forward of the center of the shaft, the higher the percentage, the better performance your bolt will deliver. FOC has two benefits for precision-minded archers. Archers can expect to see tighter groups with field tips and broadheads. The second advantage FOC creates is more momentum and less drag, thus deeper penetration on target! Borkholder Archery’s method of creating FOC is with a brass insert. Increasing the weight of your field tip will also create similar results. A benefit of using a brass insert is our ability to create a substantially larger amount of FOC than is possible with a field tip alone, while still using a 100 grain tip. This method is used on all of our custom bolts, which gives the consumer a larger selection of broadheads to choose from when ordering from us. We like to have 20% or more FOC This really comes into play at the longer yardages with marginal shot placement like the shoulder, having a brass insert or not could be the difference of your broadhead stopping in the bone or getting into the vitals.
4. Precision Fetching
The final element of custom bolts is that of precision fletching. By using state of the art equipment and a highly trained expert creates the most accurate bolts available today. As a hunter, it is our responsibility to take quick, clean kills. The precision fletching jigs used on all of our custom bolts are within 1/72 of a degree of being spaced 120 degrees apart. It is very important that your vanes are spaced 120 deg apart for optimal vane performance. We also use a 1/8 deg. offset instead of a ½ or full degree of helical like most large manufacturers. This final element helps to eliminate drag which will create greater KE which means a more ethical hunting experience.
Return Policy on Bolts
We stand behind the accuracy and quality of our bolts but if for any reason you choose to return your bolts you will be refunded the full amount if the bolts are untampered. There will be a 50% restocking fee if there is any alteration made to the bolts (markings on vanes or weight alterations). Read our complete return policy here.
Add Lighted Nocks
With lighted nocks, you’ll never wonder where your arrow went. It’s great for target shooting but most important during the hunt when the environment is less controlled. Hunt with confidence when using a lighted nock.
Equalize the weight of your non-lighted arrows to ensure consistency between both lighted and non-lighted arrows. This option is only available for Premium arrows.
