Review: RedHead Carbon Fury 6075's w/ 2" Blazer Vanes

RedHead Carbon Fury Arrows from Bass Pro Shops RedHead Carbon Furies are probably the best deal out there as far as arrows are concerned.  At about $60 per dozen from Bass Pro Shops, the price is hard to beat.  I ended up going with a dozen of the 60-75's with the 2" blazer vanes to match up with a Bear Charge that is set up at 30" draw length and 70 lb. draw weight.

Specs:

  • Straightness: +/- 0.005"
  • Weight: 10.6 grain/in (6065), 9.9 grain/in (4560)
  • Spine Deflection: 0.412" (6075), 0.362" (4560)
  • Matched Weight: +/- 2 grains

I finally got a chance to shoot a set of Carbon Furies last weekend in some pretty windy conditions.  It was definitely gusty, probably topping out at 20 knots or so, so it was a good chance for me to get a feel for how they would perform in less than ideal conditions.

I was very impressed with how level and straight they flew out of my bow, even at 40 yards.  For the most part, they could hold a 7-8" group at 40 yards, even with the gusty winds.  I was only rotating through 5 arrows, and I didn't notice any consistent outliers in the grouping.  Because of that, I am assuming that all of the arrows that didn't hit their mark were because of me and my poor form.  Since I'm using these to hopefully take an elk this fall, a 7-8" group should get me in the right ballpark.  Of course, a little more practice to tighten it up will be in order.

 

I did notice some side-to-side wobble in flight, but I haven't had a chance to determine the cause.  I was able to shoot some older, heavier arrows out of the bow that same day, and I didn't notice any wobble at all.  If anyone has any ideas, please let me know by adding a comment.

Some people have been having issues with the arrows splitting at the nock.  I haven't run into this yet, but I will let you know if I run into this same problem.

While the Carbon Furies aren't the straightest arrows (+/- 0.005") by today's standards, chances are you won't know the difference unless you are that good and do a lot more shooting that most of us.  All in all, they are definitely an awesome deal, especially for those of us that don't have deep pockets.
