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:

      THese do the job of adding weight to you arrow but they always rattled in my arrow causing lots of noise, never shot at an animal with them because I was scared that thy would jump because of the rattle. sounded like my field points were loose but it was the insert tub. I called 3Rivers and they suggested to pinch the tub with pliers just enough to take up the slack. worked great for a bit but right back to the same thing. I switched to Gold Tip Heavy Hunters instead. They are the same weight as regular carbons with these tubes and are a lot tougher than regular carbons. check them out here at 3Rivers.

      Service and delivery comments:

      3Rivers is great to work with and I will do business with them again.

        Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

        they don't appear to affect arrow flight. Can be noisy if not cut to exact length. I ordered for 9/32 arrow. inserts slightly smaller and did rattle some. Pinched with pliers and stopped noise for two days. Seems the memory in the plastic takes over and they round out a bit. May work great for other sizes. Could be a good way to add weight if you can get rid of the slight rattling. They do move the FOC back a bit. Again it did not seem to affect arrow flight.

            This worked great to make my carbon arrows heavier for my traditional recurve. Super easy takes less than 10 minutes for a dozen arrows.

              Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

              I wanted to try some carbon arrows for my longbow and needed to add about 120 grains. I cut them where I needed and they installed easily. I've read that after a hard impact they can cause the nock to fly off. So far that has not happened to me.

              Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

              I had some Easton Bloodline 330 (8.6 gpi) arrows that were brand new that had been purchased for use with a previous bow. I was trying to match the weight of a 8.7 gpi Radial X Weave.

              I used the 3.0 gpi weight tubes to match the Bloodlines to an 11.3 gpi FMJ 340. Arrows were cut to the same length and weight tubes added. Once I had the correct length of weight tubes, I cut and fit them to the individual arrows.

              The consistency was astonishing. Each arrow weighed out within 1 grain of the mark. The flight characteristics of the modified arrows was even more impressive. They actually shot better than the arrows I was trying to match.

                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.
