Break-Off is a standard arrowhead equipped with one or more
break-offs at its end. This break-off system gives high flexibility
for arrow tuning.
Bullet - Shape:
This classic form is used very often in Fita target shooting.
Through its round shape it is a little gentler to the target and
easier to drag out.
Tungsten is a brilliant white metal with high hardship, density and
consistency. It is about three times as heavy as conventional
stainless steel and is used for arrowheads to shift the weight even
more into the arrow point. This gives the arrow tuning another
The deposit of tungsten on the surface of the earth is about 0,0001
g/t. Therefore tungsten is a very rare metal and accordingly very
Break-Off points conform the standard arrowheads for carbon arrows
with the feature that it is possible to tune the weight.
The grooves for the glue, at the shaft of the head, are purposely
low- shaped. This prevents the usage of too much glue. Wrong spread
glue can cause imbalance.
Installation: After about 60 seconds the Break-Off point sticks
perfectly together with the carbon shaft .Beforehand the carbon
shaft has to be whet from the inside and cleaned with a solvent.
1-2 drops of Bond onto the shaft of the head and push in a rotating
movement all the way until it is tight fastened.
Run- point accuracy of the arrow point: 0.006 µ
The head has one or more break-offs at its end. These break-offs
can be broken off at leisure to get the ideal arrowhead weight.
Special insertions at the break off area make sure that the
tolerance of the weight, after breaking- off a part, is absolutely
Tungsten points seems to have three advantages compared to normal
points for X10's:
1. They are shorter (by about a centimeter): and hence result in
the arrow having a lower side area.
2. They are heavier (by 10 grains): and hence result in a heavier
3. They seem less likely to bend (certainly compared to the
standard points). The stainless steel points will bend simply
because they are long compared to the tungsten points, but will
bend less than the standard points. This also means that where with
standard points you may need to replace them from time-to-time,
tungsten points may last for several sets of arrows.
Point 3 is important from the point-of-view of longevity of your
arrows. If a point bends it is quite likely that the carbon near
the front will be damaged, and you may lose an arrow.
Points 1 and 2 utlimately mean that with tungsten points the arrow
will drift less. By the calculation the drift is reduced by about
3% through the combination of less surface area and higher weight.
Not a lot, but every bit counts.
