GT Pierce Platinum 300 @26.5 carbon to carbon. 105 gr Ethics Insert/outsert, 3" wrap, AAE Pro max 4 fletch, Easton G nocks, and Iron Will 125gr head. 502 TAW.

I also used a Sevr 2.1 in 125 grain on a bear, and carried a sevr 1.5 in my quiver for deer (but didn't get a chance to use it). I hunt pronghorn, Mule deer, Whitetail, Elk, and black bear with the same arrow.

I have two dozen VAP elite 300’s one dozen with 8/32 plug screws and 75 grain brass deep six inserts and footers the other have the weights titanium half outs and footers both weigh 480 grains. I did the same thing with some 250 spine vaps finished weight 565. Both setups use 100 grain iron will in deep six and standard 100 grain Sevr for the half outs. I also have a couple dozen RIP tko elite 300 spine 75 grain brass HIT and footers total weight 505 with 125 heads, and some axis 300 with 75 brass 100grain heads for a total weight of 535. I’ve shot a few deer with the rip tko and they are super tough with the footers that’s my most used set up I shot a doe with the 480 grain VAP the other day and a Sevr and must have hit offside shoulder first non pass through for me

I've been using GT Kinetic XT 200's at 520gr with regular HIT inserts, Q2i Fusion Xii 2.1" vanes in a 4-fletch, Bohning A nocks, and 125gr Spitfires and GR Fatal Steel heads........for elk of course.

But I've been looking for a more consistent spec'd arrow, so I just got some Black Eagle Spartan 250's in .001" that I will be trying soon. They come in at 495gr with similar components, except they have regular inserts.

Been using this smokin fast setup for Whitetail over 15 years.
Always get a pass through and short blood trail.
At his speed a single pin set at 25 yards has not failed.

BEA rampage or Easton Axis with HITS seems to be the easy button. Choose HIT/collars/point weight to get the overall weight, spine, and FOC desired.

Been shooting the GT Pierce Platinums the last two years. No real complaints at all but it's time for a new dozen. Really thinking of just going back to the Axis again. They're pretty much bomb proof.
