Default Aftershock Maniacs

I bought a pack of these at GM today. I guess they aren't a big seller, they were marked down to $19.99 from $31. They were pretty sharp right out of the pack, they shaved hair on my arm pretty easily. I haven't shot them yet but I'll report back with how well they fly....

They're 100 gr. with a 1 1/8" cut.

I've got a customer that is a big guy. 33" draw. He was shooting them at like 315fps and said they fly great.

JC, do those have a retainer ring to hold the back end of the blades? The picture isn't showing one?...

no, they're retained by the little tabs that fit in the slots you see on the skinny part that screws into the arrow. I guess you could put a washer on them if you wanted to, but they screw up nice and tight.

Wonder how easy it is to find replacement blades for them?

I finally got around to shooting them and they fly great, they hit right with my fieldpoints.......

They do rattle though. they need an o-ring between the ferrule and the arrow. you were right fiddle......

I'm gonna e-mail Aftershock and ask them what's up with that, because I really like the design, they're sharp and they fly great. don't want a rattle though...

I haven't followed up with Aftershock on it. one of these days when I think about it I'm gonna pick up a few o-rings and see if that fixes it. I'll probably do that tomorrow.
