FIRENOCK LATEST NEWS and PRESS RELEASES07/20/2016 PSE 2016 Target Bow part in Titanium

07/26/2016 More AeroPoint sizes
The 45gn, 55gn and 65gn in 8mm are here in our office today. We have updated our web store and these new AeroPoints are now available on our web store.
First AeroConcept Point (50 grain 9mm) is debuted today. This new product takes AeroConcept system to another level. AeroConcept Point (ACP) is a glue in point and has a hollow structure for strength and lightness. Similar to AeroPoint, ACP is featured with Firenock Double Shoulder Technology and Reverse Tapered Shoulder Technology for perfect alignment and concentricity. As ACP has Reverse Tapered Shoulder Technology as AeroInsert-A, Aero Chamfering tool is recommended to chamfer the shaft first before gluing. As of other AeroConcept system, ACP must use with AeroConcept Carbon Inner Tube to form AeroConcept System and it is recommended to use Firenock Aerovane Ultra slow set epoxy AGUSSE to glue ACP and AeroConcept Carbon Inner Tube successfully. This new AeroConcept Point (AC509S) will fit 23/64" shaft and its weight with a 6" carbon inner tube (CTI310) is only 80 grain (See photos below).
