Victory Arrows ?

I have an Excalibur Exocet 200...i currently shoot the firebolts out of it but want to switch to the Victory's...but for some reason I thought I read somewhere that Victory's could not be shot out of a crossbow with over a 200 pound draw weight. Any information would be great.

Re: Victory Arrows ?

An Exocet 200 is a 200 pound bow.Trust me they are way better than Firebolts or GT's.I tested all 3 for Arrowhead.I gave away the Gt's and Firebolts and kept the Victory's.They shoot to point of aim at 20-30 and 40 yards with a MAP scope.1 and 5/8" at 40 yards.Others moved from the point of aim.They grouped okay but who needs to make a educated (guess) correction when in the field?I tested them out of an Exocet 200 by the way.Firebolts were the worst of the 3 I tested.Others shot my bow with the same results so that eliminates operator error.At 20 yards any of the 3 would be fine.

Care to enlighten us Secret? Point me to the lawsuit.....surely you didn't just post something without proof. I'm sure Victory and Gold Tip take posts here very seriously. I did a rather extensive search and the only post on the net I could come up with, is yours.

You will love the way the Victories shoot in your Excalibur. They are a good balance of speed, weight and energy and will give you many years of service in your Excal.

Re: Victory Arrows ?

I have been shooting a crossbow non-stop since 1992 and I just shot the tightest group of my life in very low light... I have had my Victory arrows (from Arrow head) about 10 or so days.

Re: Victory Arrows ?

I only got 3 when I got my xbow. I am down to 2 thanks to shooting a 2 shot group last night at 20 yards off hands! Tore the fletching right off. I don't see anyhting that would get me to switch to another brand.

Experience the Xtreme!
