  • Patent number: 11009320
    Abstract: An archery arrow is disclosed herein, and also disclosed herein is a method for manufacturing archery arrows. The archery arrow, in an embodiment, includes an elongated member having a material that is configured to be changed from a first state to a second state. In the first state, the material is shapeable, and in the second state, the material has a rigid characteristic. The archery arrow also has at least one arrow element. A first portion of the arrow element is configured to be inserted into the elongated member while the material has the first state. When the material has the second state, the first portion is positioned below the outer surface of the elongated member, and the second portion is positioned beyond the outer surface.

  • Patent number: 10252505
    Abstract: A composite laminate is made by providing at least a first composite ply and a second composite ply, each having longitudinally oriented fibers in a thermoplastic matrix. The second composite ply is disposed on, and in transverse relation to, the first composite ply. Preferably, the second ply is disposed at 90° relative to the first ply. An article can be manufactured by providing a core material and applying a reinforcing material to a portion of the core material. The reinforcing material is a reinforcing composite ply or a composite laminate as described herein. Optionally, the core material is a prepreg that may be a composite laminate.
