Great hunting arrow!! Be careful target shooting. I put A couple dings in them, i would just recommend not shooting in groups if you dont have to. So fault being my own. I also had one bend a bit through a deer so it wasnt usable again. I ultimately ended up switching to the maxima red by CX. I also think this is a great hunting arrow, flys a bit better with my G5's. I have used the same arrow through 2 deer this past season and cleaned it up, looked it over, sharpened the broadhead and stuck it back in my quiver.
Their tough arrows and are as good or better then similar priced arrows. Accidentally shot a Steel conduit pipe that was a support for outdoor range target couple of years ago. Target tip blew threw the pipe. Arrow was in perfect shape.
I haven’t used the FMJ’s. I was contemplating on trying them soon until I saw Victory’s new arrow at the ATA show last weekend. The new Victory Xtorsion they are releasing soon looks like it might be a really good offering. The fact that the Xtorsions can still bend like a carbon arrow, but still have that rigidity from the stainless steel weave and the heavy GPI. I definitely will be giving those a try. Both arrows are pretty pricey but from all I have heard the FMJ’s perform really well. I will be awaiting the release of the Xtorsions excitedly.
I have been using FMJ's for 9 years now. I still have some of my original 12 that I bought way back then. The best hunting arrow that I have used or tried. I don't shoot in groups so banging arrows together is not a issue for me.
Watching a guy put part of a arrow through his wrist on the release will have you thinking about banging carbon arrows together. I don't shoot at the same spot so I have no issues with durability.
Probably have to adjust your rest a little to account for the skinny dia is all. You will notice a difference in how quiet and smoother your bow shoots too with the heavier arrow....and a tiny loss of trajectory.
I like the arrow but.... if you pull them out of a hard target they will form a bend. If you keep your quiver on your bow while in the case they will form a bend. If you do not get a complete passthru on an animal they will get bent.. I buy new arrows every year and I have roughly a dozen or so that have a slight bend. Can't shoot them straight with a slight bend either
