    noob question what's an ACG?

    ACGí are aluminium core carbon fibre arrows - the cheapest of the Easton carbon/aliís but still around £12 each per shaft !

    Honestly you wonít need to consider carbons until you are out to 80 or 100yds looking to achieve 1st class or Bowman, until then XX75ís (aluminium) will get you where you need to be scoring and be a lot kinder on your wallet.

    As far as I know ACCs are the cheapest Easton carbon/ali (in a wide range of spines) at around £10 a shaft, but the ACGs are more like £15 per shaft. They're generally a similar weight to the equivalent spine ACC, but are a smaller diameter. ACCs are usually available as single shafts, but most retailers only sell ACGs by the dozen. The ACG points (or ACE depending on the spine) are also more expensive (>£2) than the ACC points (~£1). Then add nocks and fletchings to taste.

    If you look up Easton arrows you'll be able to see the different types and what the differences are. Weight and precision of manufacture usually. I have XX75s and ACCs.

    Thanks all was curious as someone mentioned them in an earlier post, I donít think carbon will be on the shopping list at anytime but good to know the acronyms
