    Default Victory X-Killers... question!

    Been looking at these with a lot of interest the past few days, but I can't figure out if they'd spine out correctly for me. I have already set up some Harvest Time HT-4's for 3D this season, but the X-Killers look really good to me, and I'm thinking of picking some up to try. the fact that they're only offered in a 200 spine is holding me back though. here's my setup;

    67lb draw weight
    30" dl
    I generally cut my arrows at 28.5"

    Not sure whether I'd use glue in points, or go with inserts and screw ins.

    Given this information, how would the X-Killers work out, and what would I need to do differently to make them work well, if at all?

    When I get home to my PC I'll run some numbers. Unless someone beats me too it.

    What bow are you shooting?
    What weight tip do you plan on shooting?
    What fletching are you using to include length?
    What do you have on your string?

    I need this info for OnTarget2 software.

    You would need to load up the nose with at least 125 gr whether that is with a nibb or a insert /screw inpoint combo. I think you would be better off finding a shaft in the 300- 350 spine range but spine can be countered with enough foc.most of the really fat 3D/indoor shafts are over spined. It isnt an issue for indoor because you can load 175-300 gr in the nose. 3D you want to use just enough to keep your arrow straight in flight to keep your speed up and trajectory as flat as possible.

    I've been trying to work the numbers but my program is acting up. Your best bet is to call Victory direct. They will definitely be able to help.

    I'll keep trying, and let you know if I am successful.

    I hope your using an over draw for your arrow being 28.5 and your DL 30"? Anyhow my target2 has it saying with a 30 inch arrow using the 2 cam X-hard program the X-killer V1 200-100 spine arrow being just above the green of being good with 400grains up front making your FOC 24.54% to me that is heavy to get them close to the green on the spine chart.
    I have shot this arrow two season indoor and I did okay with them, even got a fourth at Indiana IFAA state 2010 with them.(My X-killer V1 arrow was with Triple X point of 150 grains and I left them at 30inches 437grains) Outdoor use for me they are very heavy spine and I would think you would be losing a lot of performance and yardage on long shots. But there again that is my opinion. Total weight by the system's reading them at 710.1 grains using the 400 grain to get them peek out for the spine. Good luck to you in finding your arrow.
    I did switched to the Easton Fatboy 340 spine shooting them at 30inches with 120 grains at 406 per arrow weight total and that arrow is working indoor and 3D for me if that's any help to you?

    Thanks for the info, much appreciated! I've about decided to go with either the Fatboys or the GT pro X-Cutters. Had the opportunity to shoot both thi weekend, and they were both impressive.

    Actually if his dl is 30" he wouldn't need an overdraw....a REGULAR rest would be fine. The vast majority of rest people shoot these days come to the back side of the riser shelf....even with a blade the tip is behind the berger button hole. I have an Original Pro Tuner which is the shortest blade out and my blade is about an 1/8-3/8" behind the hole.

    Reason I mention all that is because if your draw length is 30" the distance from the string to that hole at full draw is 28.25".
