Interesting stuff. Thanks for the input on the collars Kevin. l still prefer wood, and have recently made a deal with a representative of the Vatican Conference for some "quality POC" (details of said deal to remain confidential)
Sorry it's a bit of an inside joke...

Jacob...you asked about the footing size for the Axis Trad....the 1914 will work for the Black Axis but for the Trad you are going to want to use the sizes shown for the MFX on Ryans chart which would be the 2018 for the 400 spine. The 1914 will not fit on a 400 Trad....I tried it last night with a few extra shafts I had laying around.

I had a box from Lancaster Archery on my side porch when I got in from hunting this morning. Took about fifteen minutes for me to have a cup of coffee in my hand the box open. Two dozen new Beman .340 Centershot shafts. I spent mid day playing with them. Cut one to length and tried bare shafting it with a 145 grain field point. Flight was terrible, and a bit scary. I moved my nocking point down and switched to a 175 grain field point. Wow! From 3 yards to 20 yards, they flew like a laser.

I fletched one up and shot it for awhile today. Great arrow flight and due to the combination on a small diameter and slick finish they were really penetrating deeply into my target butt off of my 63 pound Bear takedown. I shot them back to 30 yards and they hit to about the same impact point as my 2117's. Finished arrow weight came in at 592 grains. I am pretty impressed so far.

I have played around with these shafts quite a bit over the weekend. Very Impressed so far. They fly great, group well and the bare shafts is flying well enough I think I could screw a broad head on the end of it and take it hunting! Here is a group of three fletched arrows and a bare shaft at 20 and a couple yards.

This size shaft may just be the best of both worlds. The skinny carbons have an inside diameter of .204 and regular carbons have an inside diameter of .244. These have an inside diameter of .230 which allows me to use a standard brass R.P.S. insert instead of the H.I.T. inserts.

I like the looks of those Randy. If I were to use glue on heads and foot the shafts, would the 11/32's adapters match up properly you think?

Never used glue ons before, but much easier to get the wight up front higher.

I don't know how much weight you are looking at getting up front, but I am using the 75 grain brass inserts of those shafts and 175 grain point which loads the front end with 250 grains.

This year I used the 75 gr brass insert. I used a 75 gr steel broadhead adapter in a 175 grain broadhead. My bow is 58# at 28" and I'm using a 29.5" shaft. With 5" x 3 feathers my arrows flew clean and not so much as a wiggle coming past the shelf/window.
