Ethics Archery Spinning Inserts
It is true in flight that drag can make a huge difference. The trajectory, stability and speed can all be dramatically impacted by drag and thus impact. Ethics worked thru the physics and found that the weight of the tip causes a dramatic loss of energies the arrow has to spin that extra weight. Their solution? A rotating insert that allows the shaft to spin independently of the weighted tip. The claim is a waste more stable arrow. Make sense but you might just have to try out for yourself and at $28 an insert, a lost arrow will now become a search and recovery mission.

Built on the popular X-Bolt platform, Browning launched this rifle for 2017. A fluted heavy sporter contour barrel leads the way and accompanies a A-TACS AU (Arid/Urban) camouflage stock. All exposed metal utilizes the a Cerakote Burnt Bronze finish to improve durability and wipe out reflection. A threaded muzzle brake is also suppressor ready and a detachable rotary magazine feeds the 6.5 Creedmores flawlessly into the chamber with a short throw bolt.
