Mine are around 460 grains now. I used to hunt with 390 grain maximas. The worked great. I switched to a Vulcan and was able to go up to 460 grains and still shoot 25 fps faster than my Diamond...

Vulcan Strings?

What strings come on the Vulcan? Would the Bucknasty or Vapor Trail strings be that much better? How good are the Vulcan strings?
