Default Are these aluminum's very durable?

I've always liked the looks of the Yukon game getter.

Most charts I've seen suggest 1916 to 2016 for my recurve specs, so I ran over to Bow jackson and built some to see.

They come in right at 10 grains per inch, depending on point weight, with about 12% FOC.

Are they very durable? I don't have a straightener, so if this is an issue, I'll stay with the terminators, but I really do like the look of these shafts, especially if adorned with some orange and natural barred turkey feathers...

Well, they are XX75's- they should be pretty tough. With alu. shafts the wall thickness plays a big role in determining durablility. 2013's and 1916's spine about the same, but 6 1916's will last me longer than a dozen 2013's. Funny to think the extra .003 makes such a difference. If you can still get them, those old 2020 shafts used to last FOREVER! A friend had a set in two tone colours- the front half was silver where the anodizing had worn away. And they were probably still good for 'nother coupla decades!
