    ACE Arrows - Front and Back

    This might sound like a daft question. I have 12 brand new shafts that need cutting down by 1 inch. From what I've read, it's best to chop from the front end (The end where the point will eventually be glued in.) But which end is the front? There are no obvious markings to indicate this. The leaflet that came with the arrows does not differentiate and Eastons web site does not appear to have this info.

    If its important to cut the front end and not the back I feel this information should be a bit more obvious. I dont want to cut the wrong end!
    Anyone know which is which?

    Yes there is a difference if you cut the wrong end. The printed decals are closer to the rear.

    Read the shaft, when the decals are readable normally left to right, the left end of the shaft is the front and the right is back

    Thanks, Really useful to know. I'm off to the club to use their shaft cutting gizmo.

    Amazing that Easton dont have any info about cutting their own ACE arrows and which end is front and back on their Web Site. I'm not prepared to phone the USA for this basic information.
