Default BEEs

I have a TenPoint Turbo XLT II. I've been shooting Pro Elite arrows with decent success but am looking for arrows that are more consistent from arrow to arrow. Out of a dozen, 8 fly great, 3 are ok, 1 is garbage. I keep hearing about the Black Eagle Executioners and custom arrows. A couple questions: Who out there is using BEEs and what kind of performance are you getting? Are you shooting customs or factory fletched?

I use (and love) CAMX Accuspine with LnL inserts.

Currently using Camx but am going to try out a dozen BEE's soon. Waiting on them to come in.
The CAMX are good but I want to change to a lighter arrow. They are slightly lighter and I have also changed to 100gr from 125gr. I have no problem with arrow penetration so I have decided to maximize speed and decrease arrow drop. My bow is quite fast at 385FPS so this is just me playing around. If I lose accuracy then I may change up to something else. Time will tell.

I have tried the BEE's in .003 straightness along with Deer Crossing arrows with the same straightness rating. Both brands factory fletched. Either shoot better than I can at hunting distance - 45/50 yards. To my thinking, this is all I need. You can get spine indexed and custom fletched BEE's from Jerry at South Shore archery. I understand that they are great, and if I was shooting for money I would likely go that route. For the average guy like myself, I would just buy the non indexed arrows and take the chance that one or two mya not shoot quite as well as the rest. You can always try turning a different vane down to see if that helps an arrow group more with the rest.

I've got a 1/2 doz. of BEE's from Jerry at South Shore Archery spine indexed .001", He did an outstanding job on them. I can group arrows out to 40 yrds. within the size of a half dollar. That's as far as the range is set up.

What weight are the BEE's? I just got a stealth ss and wonder how it would like them? BEE's can it be ordered from Jerry at South Shore Archery? They have a website? How much do they run?

I have black eagle zombie slayers. A little bit stronger than the executioners. All 12 fly true. Factory fletched. 4 of the 12 have been in deer, no idea which ones my practice arrows are my target arrows are my hunting arrows.

X2 on Jerry's. My dozen w/ 20" shafts, plastic inserts, 2" blazers, 92 gr inserts, and 100 gr points weigh 400 gr. There are no 'flyers' in the dozen, can't recall the cost, but service was excellent.
