CamX Accuspine crossbow arrows

CamX is a new crossbow company that also offers complete arrows, components and shafts.

I recenty got a half dozen of CamX's Accuspine arrows in to put them through their paces. Very nice arrows with obvious attention to detail. Will be shooting them quite a bit over the coming months to assess their accuracy and durability in several bows. Every arrow is hand fletched and spine indexed with a straightness of .001. That is a very straight arrow in the crossbow world.

I believe Arrowhead will also be testing these new arrows. Alot of buzz but the proof will be in the performance after some serious shooting.

You have to love the Lock n Load brass inserts that are held in place with a screw that splays the end of the insert open to grab the walls of the shaft. No more glue and lost inserts in targets. These are pretty cool but not cheap at $75 for six arrows.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: CamX Accuspine crossbow arrows

Oh yea, forgot to mention that right on the shaft it says "Crossbow arrow" and not bolt. Just a pet peeve of mine.

Re: CamX Accuspine crossbow arrows

I would have trouble getting past the price tag. I wonder though if they will shoot well out of the speed bows. Seems like those are picky about arrows. What is the weight?

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: CamX Accuspine crossbow arrows

Yea, they are not cheap. 410 grains for flat nocks and 400 grains for moon. The flat nocks are aluminum. 18% FOC. I expect them to fly really well out of fast bows.

Mine too. Finally someone "gets it".

I'll be testing on a "speed" bow to see how they perform for sure. I'll also be testing on some slow bows. I've learned that sometimes the advantage isn't always where you think it should be. Test everything and see for yourself what works best.

The term, crossbow bolt...the CORRECT term in fact, not arrow, comes from the medieval ages to differentiate them from long bow arrows, because they were much shorter, stouter and heavier than their longbow driven counter parts and resembled a bolt.
