Fletched up some arrows: Here is what I did. What happens is you get the inserts with the arrows and cut the arrows first and than there is a depth tool that installs the insert at the proper depth. There is also a stone to tho smooth the rough edges of the point end of the arrow. You can use this stone to fit points on snuggly or to adjust BH alignment by grinding the end of the shaft. There is also a nock tool that comes with it. When fletching the shafts use the stone to rough up the fletched area to assure good glue contact. That was a previous problem discussed and all the tools for fletching and insert placemnt come with the shaft except for fletching jig, expoxy, glue and feathers. I got my first set tonite. Cant wait to try them out. Well here it is I shot 6 400 Beman HIT Black Max MFX microeffects arrows 9.6 gpi with 145 gr field points fletched with 2 white hen feathers and an orange barred cock feather, they measured 29 inches long weighing in at 423.4 grains minus the feathers and inserts. I shot arrows out of a 58" Bruin Reflex Express 54#@28" at 5 yards real tight groups 10 to 20 the same, the group opened up a litle at 20. These arrows were like rockets and the will blast thru a bale of hay no problem and I did have a hard time finding my arrow. One arrow bounced off a rock and was still perfect. They took some getting use too out to 30 yards, but right now I need them for turkey season. I found if you follow Bemans Shaft selector, it is accurate with the shaft selection. They are real darts and heavy for a small diameter shaft. With these arrows I will be able to outshoot G.Fred Asbell, OL Adcock and definitely Bob Morrison. The website for these durable hunting tools is Beman Arrow Selector But I feel like an archer after shooting these arrows, in my 3 yrs tradarchery. oh yea I can even outshoot BayouLongbowman Take care happy hunting Paul
