Charts for Easton carbon arrows are available in both the hunting and target sections of the Easton Archery website. The full range of carbon, aluminum, alloy carbon and full metal jacket arrows are divided into lettered groups corresponding to draw length and calculated bow weight.
Easton recommends the use of a dedicated bow scale or the assistance of a qualified pro shop to determine the peak bow weight for recurve and long bow users. A graph to calculate Archery Trade Association bow ratings is provided for compound bow users.
Doug Easton started making cedar bows and arrows in 1922 in Watsonville, California. The first Easton aluminum arrows were made in Los Angeles in 1939. In 1941, Californian Larry Hughes won the national archery championship using Doug Easton's aluminum arrows. This led to great demand for Easton arrows and subsequent success for the brand.
Easton acquired the Hoyt Archery Company in 1983 and French carbon arrow manufacturer Beman SA in 1995, enabling Easton and Beman to produce a wider range of arrows for consumers. Easton is now the world leader in arrow production. As of 2015, Easton shafts are used by more bowhunters, target shooters and Olympic archery competitors than all other brands combined.
