Carbon Express Maxima Red
Carbon Express is again revolutionizing the arrow industry with the introduction of a patented new arrow – The Maxima RED.
The enemy of superior, consistent accuracy is dynamic spine, the flexing of an arrow in flight. Broadheads can make this flexing even worse. The new, hi-tech carbon Maxima RED is engineered with stiffer ends to contain and control Dynamic Spine to the center of the arrow, or the “RED ZONE”. The result is a breakthrough in broadhead accuracy and the best hunting arrow ever created.
The introduction of Maxima RED reinforces helps broadheads shoot tighter groups and provide overall improved hunting performance. Key Maxima RED features include:
Matched Set: All Maxima RED 6- and 12- pack sets are sorted and matched by weight and spine for best-in-class consistency. Spine selection sorting tolerance is +/- 0.0025″. Weight sorting tolerance is +/- 1.0 grains.
Real Straightness: Every Maxima RED arrow is laser-checked for straightness to a remarkable 1/10,000 of an inch. Maxima RED straightness of +/-0.0025″ is a maximum measurement, not an average.
LAUNCHPAD Precision Nock: Standard on all Maxima RED arrows and shafts to deliver a controlled arrow release, better shaft alignment and more consistent accuracy shot after shot.
Best Timing Arrow: The Maxima RED manages dynamic spine so well it only takes two spine sizes to cover 40-92 lbs. bows.
