Arrow Wrap Width for Easton ST Axis N Fused
I need to know the proper wrap width for Easton ST Axis N Fused size 340 black shafts.
I have been told .95 instead of the standard 1 inch for ICS carbons. Anyone know what the right width to order is?
Thanks in advance

The 300/340 spine is listed as a 9/32" dia shaft. A typical 1" wide wrap will work fine, but 0.95 will work as well.
The difference is in the amount of overlap. Circumferentially, you're looking at 0.883". Generally, for a standard carbon shaft l(17/64 to 19/64), a 3/32" overlap is optimal. It provides enough lap-up area for the vinyl but not too much. Normally, 1/8" overlap is used as a rule of thumb. For the smaller shafts, you might not want as much overlap. In the end, it won't matter much. Just means you save a grain or two in weight.
With 3/32" overlap, your wrap width comes in at approx. 0.978in.

I just ordered Eastons wraps to go on them. I believe they are 1" wide.
Targets are calling my name again! Back to pins (for now)!

I have used the 1" and they work fine. The only issue is a SMALL overlap, but it hasn't created any issues for me.

thanks guys... I think I'm going to try the .95 width ones

i would go with the .95 one myself and i did and i still have plenty of overlap.

I use my wife's paper cutter to trim them up...it's basically a razor blade mounted on a board that cuts straight lines. the cutter looks inexpensive.
