I have these in 350 and 450 spine. They are .204 dia and are heavy arrows with the 80 gr outserts. My 450 cut to 30.5" end of outsert to nock throat with a 175 gr point weigh 598 gr. Haven't spent much time trying them as these are a little overspined for my bows, 42-45# @28. 550's would be better for me. They are nice arrows and I would think they would be durable. Biggest thing I noticed is the drop at 20 yards compared to my arrows that are 100 gr lighter which was to be expected. Still have some experimenting to do.

I have been using them this year, they are tough with the 80 grain outsert.

Look nice but little heavy GPI for my builds and light poundage bows

Do they have a tapered insert/outsert to shoot glue on heads?

I started shooting the Carbon Trads in 2017, when I first signed with Victory Archery and this was the shaft they wanted me to use. The 550 spine is great for bows in the 45 pound range, the 450's great for mid 50 pound bows when you don't want a high foc. They do build a very heavy arrow, 500 plus grains on a 30" arrow.

The half outs they send with them are junk. Aluminum that do bend. I use Ethics Archery's stainless half outs and they do build a tough arrow. My 54 pound super curve loved them, and penetration was very good with them on mule deer, black bear and turkey.

With the ICE finish on them, even with a wrap, the clear finish needs to be sanded off so things will stick to the shaft. A .204 diameter shaft, super tough, with a great look to them.

Early on, I wasn't sure how long Victory arrows would be around. But then my target archery students started using them and later on some of the best barebow archers in the world started using them, and now I'm convinced they are here to stay. They make great arrows. My wife used their V3's for shooting 70M at the 2016 Olympic trials. Actually there were quite a few intermediate archers at those trials using them. I know a number of barebow archers who still use those arrows and have won many state and national titles.

I have not seen these but I'll look into them. I expect them to be very good.

Hold one bent for 2-5 seconds and then spin it. Never would I have believed it until I saw it. Unless, of course, something has been resolved in the manufacturing process.

I like their 245's - the V-force Gamer .03. Ugly graphics but they shoot well. Use regular S or Super nocks.

Haven't bought 'traditional' imitation wood in a decade...

I have a dozen of the momentum shafts made by Victory for Alaska Bowhunting Supply. Very good shafts. Love the ICE outer coating. Arrows pull out of 3D targets easily. Really like the outserts as they protect and strengthen the point end of the arrow and also add some weight for a higher FOC. Only disadvantage is they are pretty expensive.

I've been shooting the normal Gamers +/-.003. They are fantastic so far. Consistent spine, haven't had to nock tune any of them. The only one that's broken was when a doe fell on one with all of her body weight. I had another doe run 300 yards through timber with one sticking out her side after my broadhead embedded in her offside shoulder. I washed the blood off, steamed the feathers and I'm still shooting it.

I've even taken some stump shots on some pretty hard stumps and they've held up just fine.

OK, so i bought a dz v3 carbon trads in 550 at my local shop yesterday. Price was $99/dz. Fletched 2 last night for testing today. GPI is 11gpi, total arrow weight with 125gr tip is 518gr, full length. Bow- ilf rig, uukha gobi 30# longs on a 17" bosen riser. Bow comes in at 62",34#. WOW, just what the doc ordered! They surprisingly shoot great out of my rig, and are going in the quiver now as hunters. I needed a heavier shaft, and these are perfect.

I apologize. Total arrow weight is 569gr. I also added a wrap, nock bushings and f nocks.

Now Brian you know you can’t use a 569grn arrow out of a 34# recurve……..just kidding……..And I’m sure it’s going to be a great hunting setup for you!

Oh it is. These s-curve uukhas sling everything i nock with authority.

If anyone is interested in the 450's shoot me a pm. I'll make you a good deal
