    victory VAP arrow review

    well i just got a dozen of these bad boys and i am hear to tell ya, they PENETRATE. i mean these things are bad arss. shooting out of my destroyer, they shot bullet holes from the first shot, granted i do have a well tuned bow but man o man do these things fly good. i just sent to my local archery shop which has an indoor range of 30 yards. these arrows are 29.75 inches long, v3 series, 125 grain head with blazers and wraps and weigh in at 415 grains even. our local shop has the big 4 foot x 4 foot foam blocks. i blew threw the block and stuck into phonebook on the back side on the first shot. said to my self maybe i hit a well used part of the foam. shot the second, blew threw, went inbetween the phonebooks and stuck 1 inch into plywood that is behind the phonebooks. wow is all i can say with these and i am greatly impressed by them.

    Have you shot these with fixed blade broadheads yet? Just wondering because you are way under spined with that Destroyer set up. I have one my self but have been hesitant on ordering because they don't make a 300 spine yet.

    i used to shoot the v force hv 350s with slick tricks and they flew same as field tips. just took 6 shots with these new arrows into my rineheard with slick trick mags, DEAD with my field points. yes i know they are a little undersplined but talked with victory about this and they assured me they are good for up to 75lbs of draw weight even at my length. i know the hv shot bullet holes and they do just as good or better. i mean they are solid. you can really feel how stiff they actually are when you have them in your hands. they look built very very well. after shooting these, i dont think i will ever shoot another arrow with this setup. no fish tail, no nothing. staight as can be and the penetration is no joke. its the real deal.

    target penetration means little, the adapter on the end is making a hole larger than the shaft in the target so it penetrates very well in foam.imho it means litle if nothing on animals.the broadhead cuts flesh,blood lubricates and the arrow shaft it self has little resistance going through.

    I don't agree. A shoulder hit in solid bone I would put this arrow in front of any other that has the same weight and head period

    These arrows are not new to the market they just changed the name. I have a dozen of the orignal Nanos and they are awesome. I am not hunting with them just target. These arrows do penetrate well, with the glue in points they will be deeper in the target than my Lite Speeds at the same weight.

    Yes, I totally agree with you they penetrate very well. I bought some of the original nano force and fell in love with how accurate they are for 3-D. I put the glue in points in them and noticed they penetrated a lot more than the average arrows that I have shot and I am only shooting 50lbs with them.

    I think that the FOC would be extremely high with the adaptor and a 125 grain head. This would help with the penetration as well. 125 + 43= 168 grains up front.
    Sling what ya bring........

    the broadhead has to make it through first.

    i am shooting them out of my katera,,, my block target has never had a point extend out the back with the same bow and axis arrows,, the vap's were sticking through about 8-10 inches, with the axis right beside them not doing it,,, i shot 1 with an 15 head,, and it went farther than the field tips,, i dont see anything but heavy bone stopping these things!!!
    they fly superb, with 4" feathers
