A NEW STANDARD IN THE MICRO DIAMETER ARROW REVOLUTION
Get ready for Deep Six
"The challenge was to develop an internal-fit component system that would enable the first-ever use of an ultra-micro G series shaft for hunting with the added design parameters of increased-precision, more strength, and better broadhead alignment - the result is Deep Six."
Ted Palomaki, Easton Technical Products VP Product Engineering
Stronger More Precise Inserts
Conventional points tend to rattle loose, Deep Six provides 25% more thread engagement to keep points secure inside the insert. Stainless steel material is 65% stronger than conventional aluminum components.
Focused Front-of-Center (F.F.O.C.) gives higher density steel moves weight forward for genuine increases in F.O.C and produces higher levels of accuracy.
Boattail Optimization & OverBore
New Deep Six approved broadheads taper to match shaft diameter for less friction & drag during flight and throughout arrow penetration. Micro diameter shafts track behind broadhead ferrules for cleaner, friction-reduced pass-throughs.
Micro Shafts and Overbore Broadhead Design
Deep Six broadhead ferrules work in concert with X and G series micro-diameter shafts to drive through big game with less resistance. The overbore ferrule creates a channel wider than the shaft, decreasing friction for lethal penetration and more game-stopping passthroughs. Conventional shaft/broadhead combinations undergo friction throughout the entire flight of the arrow and during target impact and penetration. This decreases kinetic energy density - and therefore penetration - as the arrow is slowed by air resistance and the target.
Deep Six enables the highest performance arrows, inserts, points and broadheads ever developed for bowhunting. Until Deep Six, conventional insert systems were too large to allow hunting with micro diameter shafts like those used by world-class target competitors. Micro diameter arrows provide archers more kinetic energy density and extreme crosswind resistance-and now this same performance level is available in shafts designed from the ground up specifically for hunting.
Stainless Steel Components
Deep Six provides a stronger, more secure point-to-insert connection. Precision components are machined from tool-grade steel with 40 threads-per-inch (TPI) to provide 25% more thread engagement than conventional 8-32 (32 TPI) inserts and points. Point installation feels more precise as additional threading links steel points into high strength steel inserts - decreasing point rattle and loosening as arrows are shot.
Stainless steel Deep Six inserts are 65% stronger than conventional aluminum components. This strength increases broadhead-to-insert-connection endurance under the stresses of big game impact and penetration.
