Hello People:

I have a question about aluminum arrows. What's the difference between a, lets say,a 2315 and a 2315 Lite & a 2315 Super Lite?

If the first two numbers represent the spine diameter and the last two represent the thickness of the arrow shaft - if I get a Lite, does it make the shift weaker?

Thanks for the insight - Beacon

The name is the only difference. 23/64th" diameter, .015 wall thickness. Other names are for sales only.

The difference is the 2315 costs xx, the lite makes your wallet liter, and the super lite makes your wallet super liter.

All the above. When I was making aluminums for the family, 6 of us, I waited until years end when the shafts with those fancy names and camo patterns went on sale to make room for next years hype. Two of my favorite stores for those sales was within driving distance so we saved on shipping as well.

Yep, Dan got it right. Marketing aimed at the compound speed freaks in the 90’s

'marketing' ;-)

The name change , probably, is to justify an increase in price. After all , they're giving you more bragging rights in the form of a longer name. They will probably in the future add words like "TITANIUM", or "Diamond" or "HYPER KILLER" or.....At an added cost each time of course.

Thanks, I've wondered the same thing.

The term "Light" and "Super Light" with aluminum shafts were used for lighter weight shafts that compared very "similar" spine in a heavier arrow shaft. As an example for a 2018 that was the heavier weight, the "Light" was the 2115, and the "Super Light" was the 2213. You have to remember Compounds didn't have the speed they do now when Easton marketed them. So shooters used lighter weight shafts with larger diameters for 3D to compensate and have a flatter trajectory instead of the heavier shafts to improve scores. I believe the 2315 was the "Light" shaft for the 2219, not sure what it would have been the "Super Light" for. Some standard weight shafts were 2018, 2117, 2219, 2317, and 2419 all had a at least a "Light" shaft comparison and some had a "Super Light". DANNY

Linecutter nailed it...2115's are the same spine "Lite" version of the 2018. And the 2213 were Super-Lite. All have identical static spine.

When in doubt ask GDS or 2bears.

Well, linecutter was the only one with the right answer so I would probably ask him first.
