I finally broke down and bought a scale and a ASD. I made up a dozen arrows the other night, Powerbolts. They are solid black(no wraps at all, I took the Powerbolt wrap off) with neon green 2" Blazers. They all weigh exactly 286 grains each. Alu nocks and plastic inserts By the looks of Wes' avatar, I think he would like them. LOL. I'll be adding a 125 gr Stricknine and blasting them out of the Exomax. I'll probably throw a few with the Vixen too.
I'd rather wear out than rust out.

I haven't decided which one of the bunch I have to use yet! 8)
Probably use each one a couple times so none of them get ignored and snub me. :wink: And I dont know how many different arrows I will use or broadheads. :roll: But I can say this for sure, after last seasons write off for health problems, the Deer and others will pay dearly this season!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: I am going to favour my Equinox this season somewhat though. :)
Phoenix - 375 gr. BEE's (babyneilsons)
