Anyone else shoot these for 5-spot or 3D??

They're a great lightweight shaft.

I shot fat boys last year, which are basically the same arrow. I didn’t like the flight on them after about 35yds. They where ok for indoor 3-Ds, which was under 35yds. When I went out doors and had to shoot out farther I switched the 80gr tips for 100gr tips, this seemed to help a little. They may have worked better with an insert and a screw in tip, but this would mess up the weight and spine.

If you are only shooting 5 spots I would go with an X7 cobalt or xx78 super slam. For spots you don’t need speed you need accuracy. And you can’t beat the accuracy or the price of them.

For 3-d this year I’m starting to play with arrows. I’m not sure if I’ll go back to X7s or use carbon, Im also thinking about a/c/c too. To many choices.

Isn't there one out there called the X10? I believe they run about $500/dz.

Yes, It is a barreled shaft which makes the shaft stiffer in the center and lighter on the ends. Landcaster has them for 340 shafts, 390 finished w/o tips. It comes out to about 33.75 an arrow, thats a little deep for my pockets. Not to mention 1 doz would not make it throw the 3-d season. I have never seen any one shoot these for 3-d or target.

I've only seen pics of guys shooting them...I think it was for an ASA tourney.
