      I stumbled upon an old clearance box of arrows (I love finding these tucked away in shops!) and ended up making off with 3 uncut 2216 Super Slam shafts and a 2219 camo-hunter arrow made by Tru-Flite. It is called a “Fall Stalker” had a plastic insert and has a shield insignia with the “T” and “F” on it.

      I didn’t know they made aluminums at one point? Anyone have any information?

      Are they a light colored “camo”? It seems I remember them from way back when.

      Yeah, I remember when Tru Flite made arrows… Plastic insert huh? LOL!! So what are you wanting to know about it exactly?

      Yeah…light colored. I don’t know…how long did they make them for and when?

      I don’t know how long they were made, but I remember that the aluminum was as soft as butter. Not good.

      Tru-Flite used to be Eastons biggest distributor. But times got tight and Easton needed to improve it’s profit margin. So they bought Tru-Flight and thus were able to sell directly to dealers and take the extra margin.

      Yep, they were made for Kmart stores.

      So does Easton own the Tru-Flite feathers company or is that a completely different company?

      Completely different company. Easton merely made arrows for Tru-Flite to sell under the Tru-Flite name brand. Similar to 3Rivers’ relationship with their “Traditional Only” arrows and the arrow manufacturer (I don’t recall which arrows they are, and I’m too lazy to look right now).

      Well come on Pat! I’m ashamed of you.

      Thanks you guys…more than enough info for my curiosity. It’ll probably be bent in a day anyway.
