There are two shafts from Easton. The "Axis" and its younger brother the "Axis Traditional". Both of them are full featured carbon arrows but the latter one has a wooden design.

Axis Traditional

I've heard that these two shafts are basically completely similar except for this wood/non-wood design. Is this right? This concerns me because the traditional shaft is more expensive.

The Easton Traditional are slightly heavier GPI because (I think) of their wood decal wrap.

The 400 spine Trad is 4.9 GPI where the same spine in the ST is 4.0 GPI.

There are a few other minor differences in outside diameter, but all the components are otherwise identical.
