    I’m looking at getting a new set of arrows and they cone with outserts. I’ve never used these before. Do they shoot any different from arrows with inserts?

    They are full outserts. They’re black eagle deep impact outserts

    I shoot the Black Eagle Renegades with a half-outsert. As long as you build the arrows correctly, it will shoot the same as arrow with a normal insert.

    I personally feel more confident in a full outsert system than the half-outserts. The full outsert that slides over the shaft is far more durable and less prone to bending. Having used half-outserts for years, I can tell you they WILL bend with repeated impacts to a target. They will spin true when first installed, but over time they will start to wobble. I've seen it time and time again. Even with the strongest stainless-steel versions. Hence the reason I always ran HIT inserts or the FOCOS system in my Black Eagle Rampages.

    The FOCOS system is essentially a full outsert and I never had an issue with it. Ethics Archery also makes some great outsert systems for various arrows as well. I would run those every time over a half-in/half-outsert.

    The issue I had with Black Eagle Deep Impacts, or any micro diameter shaft, is the lack of good lighted nock options. It's hard to stuff electronics into a nock that small and have it be both durable and reliable. That's part of the reason I stuck with Rampages, and now Easton Axis 5mm. I feel like I get the advantage of a thinner diameter arrow without the component issues of the micro diameter shafts.
