For those of you that have used these arrows how durable are they. At 7gpi in a 300 spine I can build an arrow with over 18% foc and total weight at 449gr.
I currently use the rip tko elite for elk. 15.6 foc at 515gr total weight. Would use the rip xv setup for whitetailThey are more durable than you would think.
But not anywhere near as durable as others.
Just depends on your use.
I use them as a target shooting arrow for 3D.
I do not use them to shoot steel plate.
When I break them, its usually me doing something stupid like 150 yard shots at a ski resort shoot.
With a good halfout like Ethics SS or the new Easton SS 75 grain halfout I would feel confident using them for Whitetail. I wouldn't use anything weaker than a 300 spine. An Iron Will SS HIT with their collar would be another good choice, pretty dang expensive though.I currently use the rip tko elite for elk. 15.6 foc at 515gr total weight.
