I've used weight tubes for years to add weight to my carbon arrows for hunting big game. 3 Rivers weight tubes are straight, accurate and easy to install. They also come in different weights per inch so you can find the weight combination you need. A quality product

I suppose if you need to increase your mass weight in a hurry, without buying new arrows this system would accomplish that. But if you want to stay w/in proper FOC percentages, and consider proper dynamic spine in your tuned arrows, these tubes mess with all that. I don't understand how this item ended up in a traditional catalog, This item may work well for compound arrows. I think if you are serious about your arrow tunning and want a heavier arrow, get shafts at the proper weight and spine.

    Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

    Loaded up my High Plains Carbon Arrows with the 8 GPI weight tubes and the PENETRATION was awesome. My arrow weight is almost 800 grains and these things are hitting SO HARD out of my 70 and 80 lb longbows. Awesome product to increase the weight of carbon arrows.

      I was looking for more kinetic energy but not to change the spine of my arrows. This product gave me exactly what I was wanting. I now have more confidence when hunting larger game by using these weight tubes.

      Weight Tubes

      By Steel City

      from Land of Booners

      Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

      Added 3 grains per inch weight tubes to my Aramid KV's. They fit perfectly and were very simple to install. Make sure the weight tube length is right up against the inside of the nok or you may need a dab of glue on the nok. These tubes made my arrows just shy of 500 grains and I blew through a whitetail with not a trace of blood on the shaft. He fell in 30 yards.

            I was very careful installing these and still couldn't get my nocks to stay in. Even after removing the tubes I couldn't keep my nocks in. I didn't want to glue my nocks though this might have solved my problems.

            I'd try to add weight in some other fashion.

            The tubes did stiffen my arrows slightly.

              These weight tubes are easy to measure easy to mark easy to cut and easy to install. They work as advertised and I have no complaints. If you have a traditional bow that has an adjustable draw weight or a compound these should be in your bow case. I added 85 grains to my arrow at #50 and it slowed the bow too much too make it worth it.

                Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

                The "1/4-inch" weight tubes fit Gold Tip's Kinetic shafts correctly. I was concerned these tubes may be too large because the ID of the Kinetic shafts is .204-inch, i.e. .204 vs .250 (1/4-inch); seems the weight tubes should be re-designated??? The finished arrows, with 125-gr. tips, weigh approx. 580-grains.

                  I bought 3 dozen of the 5 GPI inserts. I have found them to be VERY INCONSISTENT in weight. I have found them to be in 3 groups....105-108 grains ....then another bunch from 112-115 while the third group weigh in around 138-140 grains. There are odd numbers of arrows in each group. I even had one insert weigh 98 grains and my heaviest was 148 grains. Terrible....will NOT buy again.

                    Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

                    The weight tubes are hollow, plastic, tubes that come rubber-banded together. Thought I'd include that because I was a little unsure of what to expect just by the image online/in catalog. Perhaps the mail is to blame, but three or four of my tubes arrived crushed at a certain point along the tube. This doesn't affect the weight of the tube, but it did render it difficult to feed into the carbon arrow shaft. The video on the 3rivers website gives a tip to crimp the tube with pliers to keep the tube from rattling inside arrow. My tubes fit so snugly, however, that the crushed portion made it difficult to feed the tube into the arrow shaft. One of the tubes was unusable, in fact.

                        Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

                        These are a great way to quickly get the weight up on your arrows. Great for penetration and down range kinetic energy.

                        However, they do affect FOC and dynamic spine - maybe not a ton, but enough to notice depending on your exact arrow set up.

                        Also, it may vary from arrow to arrow with these tubes, but any sort of hard impact (stump shooting, hitting dense hay bales, etc, etc) had a very decent chance of blasting my nock right off the back of my arrows. Even with a tight fit and the crimping technique, it would take glue to keep these tubes in reliably.

                        All that said, these are a cheap and easy way to beef up weight but I prefer going with a heavier grain per inch arrow, a brass insert, and a heavier point weight. You may need to beef up your spine if you go that route, but then you won't have to worry about your nocks and weight tubes blasting off the back of your arrows on hard impacts.
