Perris Archery is a Certified Beiter Dealer & Testing Centre

Don't just take our word for it this is a typical response
I would like to pass on my thanks to Tony Preston and the staff of Perris Archery.

Easton X10s are a serious investment and as a matched set of 12 you only get one go at choosing the right arrow for you and your bow. After much discussion and using the Perris Archery carbon arrow fitting service; I adjusted my centre shot and arrow rest positions and shot my new X10s at my club night to find the un-fletched in the fletched group and all sitting nice and straight in the boss. Don't buy X10s and carbons without first getting good advice. Talk to Perris Archery; they will stop you wasting your money and time on the wrong set-up and will help you get the right arrow for you and your bow.

Mark of Suffolk.

ADDED BY TONY, Thanks Mark, interestingly, the weight on your fingers against arrow length on the official chart state you have a choice between 500 and 550 spine, in fact 600’s were the ones that shot best.
