Anyone ever hunt with 1916 platinum plus arrows? How are the in comparison to Gamegetters or the camo hunters in regards to durability. Would be using them out if a 45# bow. Thanks in advance.

Durability should be fine. I've hunted with 2013's out of 45#. If it's not a pass-thru the arrow is usually trashed regardless.

They are XX75-T9 just like the camo hunters so they will be just fine. They are similar in looks to the old 24SRT-X and lots of folks like that nostalgic thing. That's what most of us oldsters grew up with.

What George said: they’re just the Camo Hunters in their Civvies.

A lot of times the Camo Hunters will be sold with nocks and inserts and everything you need which makes them a pretty good value; Platinum aren’t always sold with all the doo-dads so that target shooters can customize them, I suppose...

But just to be safe, I’d only shoot bucks with the Rugged, Outdoorsy Camo Hunters and only shoot does with the platinum.... because you know how females feel about shiny stuff. You can never go wrong!

I use them for tournaments (3-D, Field & Target) 1913s which are thinner wall & they hold up fine. I've also used them for DEER & my 1913s are 29", 3 blade 125gr fixed & weigh 395 grns. I prefer 2216s for hunting though. Your 1916s will be a little heavier than my 13s & tougher too. My 1st P&Y Buck was shot with a 1916 & 3 blade. Pass thru with 55#s at 20 yds. It's a good arrow.

I like how they fly. I’m torn between the 1916 and 2016’s. I’m able to get both to fly great. I guess it is a good problem to have lol.

I like the looks of the Platinums but the other colors are cheaper and I am retired. When I mix them in my quiver I can find no difference in accuracy or durability. - lbg

Camo Hunters are a better bargain by a few cents when you add in nocks and inserts. Same shaft otherwise.

I'd be more worried about the deer seeing PP's than CH's but it depends on circumstances. In a tree? Not so critical.

They are actually a harder alloy than the gamegetters and are a lot tougher.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Greatly appreciated!

I prefer the 2016 Legacy arrows and use 145 gr points, however I've been thinking about trying some 1916's.

1916's fly real good out of my 45# Bear K.H. with a 29.5" draw and a 125 grn Black diamond hunting head
