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!!

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?

Arrowhead sent me 3 of these a few weeks back for some testing.
A friend and I both have Parker Tornados and we have done a bunch of shooting at multiple distances with our GT laser II's and the Victory's. The Victory arrows DEFINITELY hold a much tighter group. The farther out the target the more noticeable it is. We shot at 20, 30,40, 50, and 60 yards off of a varmint rest. At 40, 50 and 60 yards, there is a huge difference in the grouping. It was quite noticeable at 30 also.
We also shot them today with broad heads at these distances, although we didn't shoot as much as we would have liked at 50 and 60 because of high wind gusts. We tested G5 strikers, Slick tricks, American broad head co. sonic pro's, and Rocky mountain Gator XP expandables. The G5 broad heads and the sonic pro's were just about dead on with the field points at all ranges tested(G5's were slightly better in our tests). The rocky MTN gators were Exactly the same as the FP's. The slick tricks were averaging about 2" off at the farther distances. With the broad heads, the better groupings were also all with the Victory shafts. The GT's opened up a bit more with all heads tested, expandables included, especially at the farther distances.
As soon as Mike starts pumping these out I'm getting a dozen. I tried to GIVE my buddy my GT's and he said no thanks!
He wants these to.
Great news!! I will get some also

my buddy just finished fletching up his victory arrows with 4" dura vanes will shoot them later this week. both of us will shoot them to see if that helps stabilize them.
I hope that works as I have an Excal Exocet 200 myself.

Unfortunately for me, I only have 6 of the old GT2 USA arrows. I wish now I would have bought more a few years ago
They were great arrows. It still baffles me to this day why GT went to Mexico and changed the arrows too
