    Easton A/C/C vs. A/C/C Pro Hunter

    Has anyone had a chance to compare them yet?



    How well are they shooting for you?

    Thanks.

    The arrow should shoot great. It's the same acc shaft, they've just added the hp insert for better broadhead alignment, and a x nock so you can shoot a lighted nock.

    I think they are due to ship in another week or so?

    I was under the understanding that the carbon wrap wall was thicker and the aluminum core is less, and possibly the over all outside diameter is skinnier, comparable to the older super slims.

    Thinking about switching to the new A/C/C this year, have been shooting
    carbon express for the last 3 years. The insert they use for that shaft does any body hot melt there inserts in with those shafts.

    I haven't shot them side-by-side, but I've been shooting a/c/c's for about 11 years now. I just don't see how they can shoot any better than a/c/c's. Maybe just as well, but better? I kinda doubt it.............

    When I compared ACCs to XX78s, the 78s shot better...but the ACCs still flew almost just as good....very small difference.

    They will have the HP insert. My dozen should be here today, so I will be able to see them up close.

    Is the HP insert the one that has part of it extending outside of the arrow?

    Wrong them being extened outside the shaft (any more than a normal insert) the HP inserts have the "Barrel" in the back of the insert and are longer than convention inserts, hence better alignment.

    I believe what you are referring to is the Halfout Insert. See link below:

    The HP insert looks like this:

    No, I am not wrong, you are. The HP insert does have the "barrel" in the back, but it does have a lip that sits outside of the shaft unlike the HIT insert, which sits inside the shaft and flush, they give you a tool to seat it properly.

    Can the ACC's "get bent" like alum shafts? I've never read anything bad about this shafts and am thinking about trying some out to compare with my CE Maxima's.

    The easton site recommends the 3-28. Does this seem right for 27" shafts @ 61 lbs?

    They can be bent but not as easily.

    WNY, the 3-28 may work, especially if you plan on using it for target or 3D with light target points (< 100gr). For hunting though I'd lean towards the 3-39 (next size stiffer). Per the Easton hunting charts I think you're borderline between the 2 and usually I find the stiffer size to work for hunting apps -- especially if using fixed blade broadheads. And as far as the bending question, they can, but it usually takes quite a bit of force beyond just normal shooting to cause a bend.

    What!!

    You mean I won't have to knock out the uni-bushings next year for my friends?

    YIPPEE! No more ricocheting bushings & drill bits!

    BEST Arrow ever built, PERIOD!

    I received mine yesterday amd made up some arrows to use next week during the second season. I like them a lot. The one thing that dissapoints me is that the nock bushing is now straight, but does not sit perfectly flush with the shaft and will not take a wrap properly. It leaves a slight dimple from the gap and it does not stick to the bushing. You can feel the extra weight though. My finished arrow with 125 points, weighed 515 grains. That is with wraps and larger FF 360 vanes. They flew just as nicely as my other ACCs. The other difference is the much bigger and brighter Easton label, though not a big deal. I also like the new HP inserts, though they are heavier at 23 grains.

    Hey Longbow . . . which ACC PH were you using to get a finished arrow weight of 515? The 340 spine, or 300?
