The Allen Company Fat Belly Bullet Points
Allen developed the Fat Belly Bullet Points to make target-shooting easier and more productive. The “Fat Belly” tapered shape creates a larger diameter impact-channel than the arrow’s shaft, making them easier to remove than standard bullet points. The Fat Belly’s unique shape eases arrow-extraction from any target, including 3D, foam, fiberboard, self-healing and other material targets. Fat Belly Bullet Points’ easy-removal even extends to extremely tight grouping. Fat Belly Bullet Points also feature an integrated Stay-Tight O-Ring system, which keeps the point secure to avoid constant retightening. They’re available in 100- and 125-grain versions, with diameters of 17/64, 9/32, 5/16 and 11/32 inches. Learn more at byallen.com.
Bohning Archery Heat Vanes
The Bohning team engineered their new Heat Vanes to address clearance issues that some archers were encountering with bows that have cables and risers positioned closer to the center.

Heat Vanes are made with a highly durable and rigid material that withstands abuse and long distance shots, and they work great with any broadhead. They’re available in packs of 36, 100 and 1,000.

Goat Tuff GT Arrow Fletcher
The GT Arrow Fletcher is a compact, easy-to-use fletching tool. It brings the arrow shaft to the vane, instead of the old-fashion way of bringing the vane to the shaft. It uses Goat Tuff’s exclusive “True Contact Design,” which ensures that the shaft and vane mate together completely, consistently and accurately every time. This creates a perfect bond, regardless of the angle of the vane or the shaft size used. The GT Arrow Fletcher comes with everything needed in a small, portable unit, including Vane Nests for ½ degree, 1-degree, 2-degree, and 3-degree vanes. Learn more at goattuffproducts.com.
