This thread is more specific. My typical arrows are very thin Easton Axis tipped with 125 grain VPAs. For turkey, I prefer Rages (actually, I prefer Bullheads but I limit the Bullheads to under 10-15 yards. For longer shots, I use the rages).
But. the Rages are 100 grains. My setup is calibrated for 125 grain heads. Is there an insert or adapter to get the extra 25 grains?
Our Bullheads fly great to 20 yards, but I've never tried them further, or had to shoot turkeys much further.
I know they work on victory Shafts as well.
I shoot 150 grain heads - GK's
so I am trying some victory arrows V1's - (bull head arrows)
I cut it down about 3" to get it shorter, and added 50 grain gold tip weight to the insert and re-installed.
I am shooting the 100 grain bull head, and I hope with the weight it will make my set up really close to my hunting arrow.
the victory V1's are 9.9GPI and my gold tip expedition hunters are 9.7GPI
The V'1s are cut 1 3/4" longer for clearance of the bull head.
I haven't tested yet - but plan to shoot today.
my bow shoots full length arrow with bull head 125's good at 20 yds and closer - I am wanting to get more distance out of it. hoping the smaller profile 100 grain 2 3/4" cut will tune a little better.
Why add 25 grains of weight through an insert when Rage markets a 125 grain model? Wouldn't that be a more effective way to accomplish the task?
As most folks noted, there probably isn't much difference between 100 and 125 grains. I'll experience and see what I see.
...that'll about guarantee you won't need to shoot past about 12 yards this spring. :-)
I had messed with my rest and nock point a little while shooting 125 bull heads.
my normal set up is 1 7/8" cut ABS silver flame XXL's so I am used to shooting big broadheads
1. I re-paper tuned to bullet holes
3. cut the magnus bull head arrows off about 2" added 50 grain gold tip weights to the arrow.
4. POA and POI for three different arrows were all the same. silver flame XXL's - magus bullhead 100's with weighted insert, and field tips.
5. the difference in my finished arrow weights are with in 15 grains - and it did not make any difference in POI.
the weights work really well for folks who are trying to use certain broadheads and target certain arrow weights.
