    I just like trying stuff. I shot CE piledrivers a few years ago. They failed to penetrate the shoulder blade of a smallish doe so I got mad at those (even though it was my fault) Tried CE maxima hunters last year and I really liked them. This year im trying out bloodsport punishers with a 50gr insert and I really like them.

    Who knows what I'll shoot next year. Whatever I shoot will have brass inserts.

    Easton Axis 340. 29" with a 100 grain brass insert. Used them since 2009. Suckers hit like a freight train. Literally zero issues with them so no reason for me to change unless they quit making them.:bow:

    I think the HIT insert is around 14-20 grains. Which is typical for a standard weight insert.

    Easton Hexx lightest shaft I could find in grains per inch. The Hit insert is 75 gr with a 25 gr break off my Hexx 340 @ 28 in 50 gr insert and a 100grain head out of a 70 lb bow has been a great combo at total of 420 gr

    Easton FMJ. The Archery shop cut a few other arrows too short and gave me twice the number back in FMJ's, said they were a more expensive arrow and smaller diameter. Once I got these sighted in I started liking them. Fly nice but I’ve yet to shoot a deer.
    Hopefully soon ###——->
