I recently talked with someone from this forum about Victory arrows. I have to apologize, but I've forgotten your name already (it's the family curse) Would you please send me a P.M. with your name,address and phone number?
Thanks,
Mike

For everyone that is wondering what is going on here....we have been tinkering with the Victory arrows for a while now. This is the arrow that I have been saying "we have an arrow that shows great promise". Fman has been chosen to do some testing for me. I need to test them in several bows before I release them to everyone. It is my belief that this arrow will replace the G/T Laser II's, pending some more testing.

Can I test too?I lost a scope cover so I will be calling you guys again lol.
Diablo666,
Since you were the first one who asked....when the flat nocks come in...you are the "chosen one". I still need to do the final testing in the Excaliburs.

Stay tuned for the final results in the Parker!

Yes, let me know how they are with the Exocet 200. I currently use the old GT2`s and 100 gr. WASP Boss 3 blade heads. Are Victory arrows made in the USA? I know GT`s aren`t now

Some eh. Ya, they couldn`t keep up supposidly and moved to Mexico. They should move it all back and just expand. They couldn`t keep up probably was bs and really meant we want more profits!!

arrow head if ya need a buckbuster tester i'll put them to work. the gts ya sold me work pretty darn good so i would be happy to test to see if they are better. to be honest though the bolts ya gave me are pretty darn good, be hard to beat imho but i would be objective.

Yes, I'm told the Victory are made in the USA. If you measure the old GT's and compare to the Victory...I think you will find they are almost identical.
The quality of the Victory is really good. I think after the testing is complete, we will be replacing the GT's from our lineup. Yes, they shoot that good. My goal is to have them ready before the end of Feb.

The Victory arrows are ready for the Parkers. You will get a more consistent flight and a harder punch downrange. In the tests we were getting more f.p.s. at 30 yards, even though the arrow weighs more and is slower at the barrel. I know that may not seem to make sense.

Here is a little explanation, to help it make sense. All objects drop or fall at exactly the same rate. With the same basic size, the air resistance on each arrow is the same. So, air resistance isn't a factor in this case. Now, here's what happens, air resistance slows the arrow, momentum tries to keep it going, a heavier arrow will have more momentum but the same amount of drag(if arrows are same size, same fletching, etc), so the heavier arrow will slow down less during flight so it will have a slightly flatter trajectory and maintain it's speed farther downrange.
I know that it might seem that the Laser II's are a difficult combination to beat, but I think we've done it. I'm getting better groups with them.

For a 20 inch arrow, how much heavier are the Victory compared to the GT?

They are right around 25 grains heavier.
The newer GT`s correct? Do you know what the older GT`s weighed before they lightened them? Was it about 25 grains heavier like the Victories?
