I bought a dozen to practice in the yard with and they have performed remarkably well.
Are they factory seconds? Discontinued stock? Why so inexpensive?
Thanks for any info.

I'm curious about these as well. I just saw some Black and Tan arrows for the first time a couple days ago. Kid walked into the bow shop with them. I did not think Easton made them though. The shop owner told me some old lady made them (probably fletched them was all) and sold them for something like $35 fletched for the dozen.

The arrows I saw were black with a tan translucent film over them. The kid needed them cut to length, so I took a scrap chunk and broke it over the table edge. Construction looked similar to a Gold Tip.

I can't imagine they are that straight for the money, but at that price they'd make some good arrows for the kids and wife since they tend to loose quite a few.

Anyone know anything else about these arrows?

The ones I saw were not Troopers. Troopers are a glass arrow (at least what I just pulled up on the net). These arrows were definately a carbon arrow. Black with a translucent tan over them. Gave them a black and tan striped effect (long ways down the shaft).

No, I did not take a picture. The shop owner said he'd only seen them one time before. He ran into them down in Texas on a hog hunt last year. Some guy was hunting with them and told him about the old lady that sold them to him.

I don't remember seeing a manufacturer name on the shafts. Just had Black N Tan in bold letters and then the spine designation.
