Just saw this shaft at the local shop today and liked the looks of it. I have been using the axis shafts for a couple of years, but I think I like the inserts on the epics (HP inserts) better than the HIT inserts. The epic is also a little cheaper. Those that have used this shaft, what is your opinion? How tough is it?

I have both the Axis and the Epic in Nfused carbon, and have noticed tighter groups with the Axis...

Any ideas as to why? Does the axis have better specs as far as straightness?
It's a slightly heavier arrow.

My Axis 400 NFused arrows are .4 Grains Per Inch heavier than my Epic 400 NFused are.

Tolerances are identical otherwise.

epic

i shoot ST EPIC NFused 500s. i have to say i haven't tried the axis, but i shot each arrow about 150 times and they still fly great. Looking forward to shooting another 150+! i've only used them for target if that helps.

PS. i have a 49# recurve at 30" draw and i no problems so far.

Cheers! :cheers:

I shoot N Fused Axis and although I will not change to another shaft I think their drawback is the tend to crack at the tip when you hit something hard. I noticed when I shoot my 125gr Muzzies a lot that the cracking or splitting of the tip is more evident. Can be that my arrows don't always hit the target perfectly straight, but I had a lot less trouble with A/C/C's with the aluminium insert.

one more thing!

oh and just to clarify how impressed i am with the epics... i misfired a shot and hit a STEEL toolbox from 15 yrds, :embara:, don't ask how i missed, that's a different story! and it ripped a hole right through the steel after ricocheting off and landing on the floor. believe it or not, the arrow is perfectly fine and i still use it today, but not on toolboxes! lol
