My thoughts are, they sound good but I can't find them anywhere. I can't even get a price on some.

Decent arrows, but not as good as the Axis. We did some testing on them in the shop, and the Axis were both more durable and pentrated better. If you want aluminum/carbon, just bite the bullet and grab some A/C/C's...yeah, they sting a little, but they are worth EVERY penny!

I'm very happy with mine. With my draw length at32" I'm not able to shoot a whole lot of differnet arrows , but the FMJs shoot real good for me. They are very slim so the penetration is good as well. I shoot the 300's which are 11.6 gpi so they will be a litle heavier than a standard carbon, but that weight translates into energy, so it is a fair trade for me. I'm shooting 268 fps at 572 grains, which is around 90 pounds of energy, or sufficient for any African game, let alone deer.

I like the idea of being able to refletch without having to worry about gouging the carbon on the arrows exterior.

I've got a dozen of both the 400 and 500's. Really like the 500's better but I'm shooting a 26" draw from a BT Equalizer. Hammers with the new Muzzy MX4. ST Axis plain to much. I get no drift with the FMJ's.

That is a little stiff, I paid just under $100 for mine. No complaints so far. I'm shooting the 340's, 11.1 gr/inch. I went with them over the ACC because of the weight. I like the heavier arrow. They are shooting well and no fliers in the dozen that I bought.
