    Day Six arrows

    I've talked to Bryan a few times either over the internet or by phone. His customer service has honestly been a huge part of why I trust the arrows. We are splitting hairs over tolerances, spines, components, and to be truthful I think it maybe accounts for 20% max of what's truly important. I...

    Single pin sight in hunting situations

    I use a single pin CBE Tek Hybrid Pro, even with a 500gr arrow I killed my last buck this year at 42yds while my sight was set at 30 and did not consciously holdover. My specs are 29/70 and the arrow is around 272fps. 40 and in is a no brainer for medium size game. Just point and shoot. I've got...

    The DIY Kifaru Charmin pocket

    I was worried that the added length would allow a rifle to be kicked in stride but so far around the house it hasn’t been an issue, I need to develop an idea of where to run the vertical straps that would normally hold the grab it up; for when it is in this down position Sent from my iPhone...

    Resurrecting the Hunting with a Hinge thread

    If you listened to the Kifarucast with Levi Morgan you’ll note that he is of this same mindset. If it’s good enough for the greatest 3D archer of all time it’s good enough for me....and that’s coming from a guy who doesn’t own a black and gold jersey [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Does left or right offset/helic matter?

    There’s a hypothesis that exists in the Archery World that states that the direction in which your string is twisted while being built, dictates the direction of natural rotation that your bare shafts have. To be honest I’ve spent zero time thinking about it or attempting to figure out if it has...

    Day Six arrows

    My full disclosure would be that I was down to 4 Axis shafts before I got mine. Which i still feel are a badass shaft. Im sure that I heard about them first through Aron and the podcast because that’s the primary marketing source. I am currently doing some testing across all varieties of arrows...

    Dumb question, but I gotta ask it...

    Not at all, you’re strengthening the end of the shaft I would just encourage you to square up the shaft as best as possible prior to install. It sounds like a great way to add just a tiny bit more weight Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Day Six arrows

    I think it’s all based on what you want your total setup to end up finishing at in my mind. I’m impressed by the durability of these shafts, I haven’t shot VAPs in a few years but I don’t think they’ll finish as heavy as these if that’s what you’re after. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Arrow Dynamics: A Series on Hunting Arrows, By Daykota Kime

    You let me know when you find that Holy Grail because we’re all still searching! I think it falls somewhere near 230gr and 3000fps haha in all seriousness that’s why we do this, it’s necessary to learn what works best for our given style of hunting and the game we are most often chasing. Keep...

    2019 First Lite

    Hey Jordan, are these just a heavier version of the original talus? I had 1 set of the OG talus and ordered two more last season, I miss the shorter finger length but still an outstanding product Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dumb question, but I gotta ask it...

    What I cannot understand is why someone has not developed a taper on the front end of the insert to ensure concentricity. It would be costly for a QC perspective but it can definitely be done Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Arrow Dynamics: A Series on Hunting Arrows, By Daykota Kime

    In the second article I spent some time talking about trajectory and in my next efforts I will cover this more extensively. I stopped talking about drop at 40yds in the article because after that things really begin to fall of the table. Because you are shooting a 5 pin sight you are probably...

    Dumb question, but I gotta ask it...

    Shaft wise, I’ve had FMJs bend. It’s unfortunate but it’s just part of owning them. If you ignore that, you’re essentially looking at the same arrow. The difference in my mind is components. You can run 75gr HIT inserts in the FMJs which are tried and true. The outsert system on the Day Six...

    Resurrecting the Hunting with a Hinge thread

    Last year was my first commitment to hunting with a hinge, I too use a Scott longhorn. It just made sense to me seeing as how I have a hinge in my hand for the other 9 month out of the year. 3-4 whitetail and 1 Bull last year fell to it, the last whitetail I shot was a testament to the hinge. I...

    Day Six arrows

    How did you test you runout? I thought I had an issue with mine at first but ended up having some bearing issues that were contributing. Either way if you contact them they will take care of you!
