Skylon Radius Arrow (Fletched w/Vanes)
- Arrow Services
- Special Orders
Good for both indoor and outdoor shooting, the Skylon Radius carbon arrows are one of the beginner and intermediate archers' best options.
They are durable and forgiving, and come factory fletched with EP-23 vanes, with small groove pin nocks, pins, and break-off points corresponding to the shaft spine included.
There will be no choice in nock and fletching colours as they come pre-packaged with the arrows. Please see spine chart to select a spine that best matches your draw weight. The Radius arrows are sold in packs of 12.

I have been using Skylon Radius arrows for over a year now in tournament and 3-
d. I have found the arrows to be durable, accurate, and fast; a 30 ft/sec. rise in speed over my former favourites (Easton Axis). I am thoroughly satisfied with them, and will buy more as I need to.
I just got these to pair with my new ILF setup (purchased through CAO of course!), and I'm very happy. I also have experience with the Skylon Frontier (feather fletched) that I use with my traditional longbows (I love the Frontier, inexpensive and perfect for my skill level). The Radius are thin arrows, with vanes, oriented towards outdoors target shooting. They have pin nocks, and come with breakaway points (which CAO had to explain to me, since I wasn't familiar with those types of points). 110$ for 12 arrows is a pretty good deal (especially considering the pins, nocks, and points!), and online reviews seem to indicate that overall quality is quite good with the carbon, and general performance is alright (again, for entry level arrows). Highly recommended, you'll pay the same as for cheap arrows on Amazon, and get a much better product in return (and encourage a Canadian business to boot - AOE I mean, not Skylon :-)). EDIT: quick note on spine. Looking around forums, I see that most folks indicate that these arrows are stiffer than advertised in their spine chart. I have 750 at 31.5 inches for 28lbs (ILF recurve, FastFlight string) and I think 800 would have been slightly better (if only slightly). I'd recommend talking to the CAO techs before ordering (put another way, don't put too much stock in the Skylon chart).
I've been shooting these arrows for about 2 months with no issues. They've been accidentally fired into the wooden backstop a number of times and have not broken.
they a great arrows will buy them again
Spine 550 @ 40#/29 “ draw.
I wrestled with these arrows for a few weeks, adjusting length and point weight, before getting them to a point where I could shoot with any accuracy. They tend to land unpredictably tail left or tail right in any target.
If your bow hand or release is off by the slightest amount, these arrows take on a will of their own. I do not recommend them.
At Canada Archery Online we try and offer a variety of arrow choices. This includes factory fletched, fletched and shafts. It's important to understand what this means.
Arrow buying information.
- Fletched and Factory Fletched - The arrows come fletched from the factory. They often come with inserts included but not installed. Points are sold separately.
- Ready to Shoot or Assembled - This means the arrow is fletched and comes with points and all components installed. Often are Factory Fletched Arrows where points are inlcuded and everything is put together by the manufacturer.
- Shafts - This means you are purchasing just arrow shafts. These come unfletched but often with the bushing and sometimes inserts needed. Typically an archer will need to purchase nocks and points, along with any components they may need for fletching. We encourage all archers to learn fletching themselves for the ultimate custom arrow. It is also significantly less expensive over time to learn to create your own arrows!
Arrow Cutting, Insert Installation & Points.
We also offer the option to install inserts, include points and cut arrows that come fletched from the factory. These are optional services we offer as a convenience for our customers. Each one you select will be added to your cart as a service with it's own charge.
Our Fletching Service.
At Canada Archery you might notice the ability to add fletching options onto your arrows. This is a fully custom service offered by Canada Archery. We take extra care in fletching and preparing your arrows. Including proper cleaning and adhesion tricks so you never lose a feather or fletching. Arrow fletching if selected will be added to your cart as a service.
Once selected these services will be added to your cart. Each one you choose will be separately added. If these services are removed from your cart prior to ordering WE WILL NOT perform those services even if listed on the arrow. If you purchase a set of arrows and remove services, arrows will be shipped exactly as listed or completed with services paid for.
Only services you pay for will be performed, we will never charge you for services you did specifically add yourself.
All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.
Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.
Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.
We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
