Has anyone tried out these newish Iron will "C25 Impact collars?"

They seem like the a great way to toughen up the end of an arrow shaft. I am considering building them onto a 300 spine easton axis. with a 50 grain brass insert.
I shoot 100 grain QAD exodus heads. It seems that these would be much better than the aluminum ones made by other companies that receive complaints.

Im also considering using the Easton BAR "Broadhead Adapter Ring" instead. Any opinions on this is appreciated as well.

I’ve been shooting them on 300 spine Axis arrows with 75gr inserts and 125 heads. It’s a heavy arrow. No idea what it’ll do to an animal but flight is basically unchanged and I have a little peace of mind about the end of the shaft holding up over time.

I’ll echo that the fit is very good. I actually had a moment of panic because mine wouldn’t go on. I thought I goofed and ordered the wrong size but I finally realized there was a tiny nugget of glue on the edge of the shaft and the tolerances are so tight on the collar that it fits the shaft and nothing else. Scraped the glue and it slid on like a glove.

Just installed a dozen of these on my Easton Axis 300 Match Grade arrows. I installed the HIT insert one day and then used another batch of two-part epoxy the next day to install the collars. I chose to glue them on instead of just sliding them on for a little piece of mind. They spin true and a give a little bit of a bump in FOC with my heavy arrows. This year I'm going to also be shooting the Iron Will 125 grain vented heads. This is my first time using footers and I found out they aren't easy to remove from a bag target, but make pulling out of a Block target super simple.

Couldn't you just get a 25 grian heavier field tip to practice with a bag target? That is if you didn't epoxy them on.

I could, but most of the time I have hard impacts to my arrows it's when I'm pushing the limits of my range during practice and that's when the collar is of most benefit. I just picked up a larger Block Vault target and all is well again.
