    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....:biggrin1:

    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?...:noidea:

    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.

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

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

    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...:nono:

    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.
