    I changed arrow brands this year and i wonder if anyone had any comments on them. I bought beman 400 and shoot muzzy 100gr. They are extremely fast, and accurate

    Up until recently I had been shooting the Beeman ICS Hunter Jr. arrows. With 75 gr Muzzys. They're supposedly 40 lb max but I was shooting them at 60 LB with no problems, even killed 2 deer; one being the 10 pointer that won the BOC buck contest. A little over a month ago I switched to the ICS Hunter 400's and they seem to be splintering. One has groove in it and another is splintered from the insert up about 8-10 inches. I shot the Jr. arrows for over a year.
    I guess they just can't handle the power of this new Ross bow! :big_smile:

    if there splitting then beacuase of your bow draw weight maybe you should go to the beman ics 340's sine they are thicker man have not split at all (exect for when i robin hooded one) but im only shooting 45 lb draw right now

    i had the hidden insert put in them and they held up good while shooting at the Gan. Mtn in the practice room. No splits, at 65lbs

    I don't think it's due to the bow weight. Like I said the Jr. arrows were being shot at 60 lbs, 59 actually and these are being shot at 66 lbs.
