18" executioners/110 grain inserts/2" blazers/100 grain Muzzy Trocar/Matrix 310.
Spine indexed 18" Big John Zombies & spine indexed 18" Spynal Tapps /
125 grain Swhackers = 400+ grain/Matrix 330.
Awesome accuracy from both set-ups.

O-ring: 0.5 grain - used to aline broadhead to vanes
Insert: 92 grains brass insert
Shaft: Zombie Slayers 18 in. @ 9.1 gr/in = 163.8 grains - logo removed
Vanes: Blazers @ 6 grains/each = 18 grains
Insert: 8 grain plastic
Glue: approx. 3 grains

Grained matched to +/- 1.0 grain
Total weight: 435.3 grains

Getting same hole accuracy and less noise and vibrations from bow's.

I'm sorry for my crappy attitude, I truly mean that. I'm by no means an expert, and try to learn something here every day. I have been way down in the dumps lately for reasons I cannot control. Again, this is a great post, and idea that I'm sorry for dumping on.

....I guess another question which comes up often in making your own is what do you do in the preparation phase of making arra's. So I'll give it a shot:

1. Take raw shaft and cut to size,
2. I square each end using the G5 AST,
3. Clean our both sides with Q-Tip and acetone,
4. I remove the label with acetone,
5. Take fine sandpaper and rough the end of shaft where vanes to be applied,
6. Clean entire outside of shaft with acetone,
7. I rough up insert with a fine course file,
8. Glue in insert using Tech Bond (never had one come out),
9. Depending upon what nock to be used it is inserted into shaft at this time,
10. Arizona EZ Fletch Bolt is used to apply vanes to shaft,
11. Vanes are prepped by running fine sandpaper through glue groove and then cleaning with acetone and setting aside to dry,
12. Shaft with nock is inserted into jig,
13. Vanes are inserted into arms and Gorilla Glue Blue cap is applied to each vane making sure it is enough but not too much...a toothpick could be used to assist spreading glue along glue trough,
14. Without touching arms the bottom of jig is rotated to compress arms against shaft,
15. apply arm, shaft collar...wait 1.5 minutes,
16. Remove collar and release arm tension on jig by pushing up and rotating base.
17. Pull each arm away from shaft,
18. Remove completed arra from jig and inspect,
19 Take a toothpick and rub, pushing against the shaft along side of the arrow trough where it adheres to shaft,
20. Clean any excess spillage of glue with a paper towel and acetone,
21. Apply glue bead to front and back of vane.

Done.

This is my process...I would be interested in hearing others.
