USA -(Ammoland.com)- Manufacturers of hunting gear are constantly releasing new products, often marketed with references to new technologies that will outperform everything else in their category. Sometimes these marketing claims are true. Other times, they fail to deliver on the hype.
As a series, Technology On the Hunt highlights unique new technologies that offer real benefits for hunters in the field.
Improved Performance and Durability for Micro-Diameter Arrows:
Micro-diameter arrows are a growing favorite among bow hunters because they can deliver higher velocities, maximum down-range energy retention and better resistance to wind drift. Ultimately, this should add up to superior accuracy, enhanced penetration and pass-through performance.
When shot at high speeds from today’s performance bows, however, many micro-diameter arrow shafts are prone to increased deflection on impact, especially with broadheads. This can result in a variety of undesirable outcomes, including unpredictable vector changes after impact, a loss of kinetic energy and damaged arrow shafts.
Developed as a result of extensive micro-diameter arrow testing, Bloodsport Archery’s R.O.C. (Reliable Outsert Component) system eliminates the common failures associated with poorly engineered outserts that add stress to micro-diameter arrow walls and tips.
Consisting of a standard glue-in post and a threaded, reinforced outsert, the Bloodsport R.O.C. system incorporates a patented shock-absorbing design that transfers energy efficiently through the full length of the arrow shaft while maintaining accuracy. The result is greatly reduced deflection, which preserves energy for maximum impact shock and penetration.
The clever R.O.C. system allows hunters to harness the full benefits of their micro-diameter arrows while experiencing more predictable performance, maximum energy and less arrow damage – during practice and in the field.
The R.O.C. system is available in four sizes to work with most of today’s common micro-diameter arrow sizes.

At Bloodsport, we are committed to building the most accurate arrows in the world. While other companies count success by the number of shafts shipped out the door, we count ours one arrow at a time. After all, nothing is more important than the arrow you are about to shoot on your next hunt. All of our arrows are hand sorted and graded so that you truly get what you pay for. Great care is taken to ensure that all of our components are matched perfectly with each shaft. While the extra steps we take certainly cost us more than the other guys' mass production method, the end result is that a dozen of our arrows look the same, weigh the same, and fly the same. If we wouldn't shoot them ourselves they don't make it to the store. We make sure you can pull Bloodsport arrows out of the box and aim with confidence. Once you shoot our arrows we think you will agree that the extra effort is worth it. At Bloodsport, we aren't trying to be like the other arrow manufacturers, we are working hard to be your arrow company.
