Carbon Collars, 12-packItem Number: 4920X
Reinforce your carbon arrows from spliting or splintering with these carbon collar aluminum footings. Installed behind the insert (before mounting inserts), these strengthen your carbon arrows to help protect from shattering when hitting a hard surface. See our Nock Collars for reinforcing your nock end.
Weigh approximately 5 grains each. Sizes have been redone to apply to more arrow brands and spine weights. Please see the charts below to help in selecting the best fit for your carbon arrows. The Inside Diameter (ID) of each carbon collar is listed so you may match it up with your arrow shafts Outside Diameter (OD). All collars will have a tolerance of +.001", but will not be under. Sold by the dozen only. It is recommended to epoxy carbon collars in place. It fills in any space between the collar and the shaft due to tolerance differences.
Note: The outside diameterof the Arrow Dynamics wood grain shafting varies by a few 1000ths due to the wood grain graphic wrap. Therefore some carbon collars will slide on, and some will require more pressure to install. On the tighter ones, use sandpaper to sand over the leading Outside Diameter edge of the cut to length shaft, start the carbon collar, then apply pressure against a hard surface to push the collar on. Do not over apply pressure as you can break your carbon shaft.
Charts are subject to shaft and collar tolerance differences.
