I am a dealer from them and have shot them before.

Any specific questions?

Just curious about the strength of the shaft. I'd put a brass insert in, like the bigger diameter allowing me to avoid an outsert.

Sorry to butt in, but I have a question about the Black Eagles?

Where are they manufactured?

I'm interested in these too.

I currently run .350 Vintages out of both of my Robertsons in my signature below. I used BE's brass inserts (42gr) and added their 30gr brass weighs. On the biz end are 200gr RMS Cutthroats. All in, I'm at 605gr, I'm not sure what that works out on FOC percentage wise.

They're straight, well within their advertised tolerance. The cresting is spot on, not a waver between color changes. I haven't had any issues with the gluing of the vanes. The vanes themselves are holding up after upwards of 100+ shots, as is the arrows overall durability.

My only gripe with them is BE went and discontinued the Black/Orange color scheme for some odd reason. I'm not fond of the Orange/Yellow, Green/Yellow or Black & Red schemes, so my next batch will probably be just shafts.

I wish they could do the cresting but with different colors. It does look nice, but I think I'd just go with the regular shafts.

Thanks for posting those, they look good!

Got some 300 full length from D&M who is s sponsor here. They are dialed in with 150 grain up front and 50 gr brass insert. I footed them with 2 inch aluminium shafts and they are holding up well.

They shoot well for me. 350 32" 50 gr brass insert /250 gr head. I prefer to buy the bare shafts.

I have 6 of them. They seem every bit as good as gold tip trads.
