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.

    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.

                Comments about 3Rivers Arrow Weight Tubes:

                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.

                    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.
