They don't make RH Supremes anymore... they are supreme lights now.

you can get them with blazers.

The ones you have look in OK shape... maybe consider getting them refletched?

A Lumenock for a Super nock or the lumenock standard lighted arrow nock will work in the arrows you have now.

The 250 is how carbon express labels their arrows for spine. The 250's spine rating is .390.

Yes, and it probably is from your whisker bicuit. you are barking up the right tree by considering blazers, they hold up better through a WB.

what does the 250 mean?
As archer explained, 250 is the arbitrary number assigned to that particular model of arrow to reflect a deflection of .390.

can i buy kits to refletch my arrows?
yes you can. In fact, there are several good choices that don't require anything more than a pot of hot water to adhere new vanes to your shafts. Quickfletch (by NAP) and extreme archery both have products that will suit your needs. You can if you choose purchase a fletching jig, but thats a more complicated deal.

Honestly I can't say. There is so little information given about them. You need to know what spine/stiffness you'll need. What # are you shooting, what is your draw length? That company selling those arrows doesn't know the difference between the model and maker of the arrows, I would consider purchasing arrows through a reputable dealer. If you select the wrong spine of arrow, you can have pretty poor flight and results. In extreme cases of too weak a spine, you could even put an arrow through your arm... I say this because this ALMOST happened to me when I was young and dumb and bought arrows at wal-mart. (I shot 30-50 thunderstorms arrows at 28" off my hoyt ultra tec at 29.5" draw and 73#s... I killed 6 deer with one of those things... and never had it break... I got extremely lucky.... they sure were fast though.....

Of those on the list, I liked the Carbon Force Black Mamba and the Carbon Force Predator. Both have a consistency of ±.003, which is twice as consistent as the Gold Tips you found on Amazon.com. For a similar price, you can get Carbon Xpress Maximas, which are the same consistency as the Carbon Forces I recommended. I think you should consider Carbon Xpress in addition to these. The only advantage you get out of the ones on Amazon is the price. You cannot buy a dozen new complete arrows at a pro shop for that price.
