I switched from carbons to 2117s last summer, used them all season (not that they've been out of my quiver...), and plan to use them next season as well.

2317s are all I used from about 1984-1991 for hunting.

Make sure you keep high enough broadhead weight on them and they're great.:)

Well, if all we had to choose from was aluminum, the 2317's are what I'd be using. Of course they'd only be about 69gr heavier than what I'm currently using.

If my old arss could still pull 80lbs I would still be fling 2317's. Deer, elk and bear do not like this arrow size. It's a bone crusher, not the best for expandables but fixed blade work awsome.

Moose what lb are you shooting I shoot 70lbs with a g5 125 gr striker on a 29 in 2315 and have the best flight out to 40yrds they shoot flatout to +25yrds you will need to find the right combo for those 2317 heavy walled arrow takes longer to recover after the release,good to see you coming back to alum.

When I was shooting over 70#'s that is what I used, loved 'em. I like the big ole logs, they flew great out to 60 yds for practice with broadheads.

I'm shooting 2315's XX75 now with some 78's.
Aluminum it's not just for cans.

Moose you ought to love 'em they are a great shaft.


Happy Holidays and Be Safe.
