Last year I was shooting a .300 FMJ with 125 grain Magnus Snuffer SS and the blazers. They weighed right around 500 grains and I was getting about 275fps.This year it will be the same but I have 50 grain inserts so should be right around 550 grains. They fly perfect out of my 72lb Hoyt Carbon Spyder Turbo. It's a elk killing setup.

Seems like a decade or more I ha be been shooting victory arrows sportsman's guide sells for right now on sale @ $40.00 a dozen. let them cut to length then I refletch to 4 Fletch  I  don't see a need for overpriced arrows IMO

Gonna check these out. I'm with you and not paying for over priced slivers.

Eason Bloodline, your choices are pretty limited when you have the wingspan of a bald eagle.

What is your draw length?  I was running Blooodlines at 29.5" with an overdraw with 200 grains up from out of my Hoyt.  I just built an Easton Axis 260 at 30.5"  with 175 grains up front to shoot out of my PSE.

Switched to Victory VAPs this year with the 75 grain insert/outsert. Got a really good deal on a dozen of them.

Teeny little diameter arrow!

Up front I've got a small pile of RAD 125s to choose from. Rival, TiCon, Madman.

I shot the gold tip xt for many years then got a killer deal when sportsman’s sold a bunch of stores on 4dz pro hunter shafts. Think I’m down to less then a dz now days. I think I’m at 31/32 animals with them. Always been good to me.

I may however try some black eagles when I go to get some new arrows.

Easton FMJ in limited edition Autumn Orange. 390 spine, 6mm. Aluminum insert (not the hidden ones) that came with them, they were factory fletched with blazers, orange nock, tipped with RAD Triple Sec HPV 100 grain heads.

Been looking at lighted nocks. Might give a few a try.

I have a dozen of those axis arrows I'm trying to part with if you're interested
