I also shoot Beeman ICS Pro Hunter 400's. that's all I've ever used with my Drenalin. My bow tech matched it all up andnits always worked great.

By now you have probably started ripping fletchings.  It's about time to stop trying to shoot groups and start aiming at different bulls each shot.

Sounds good, tikka!!     Beman's are some good arrows.   I shoot GoldTips, but just about all the arrows out nowadays are great.   The trick is matching what works best on your setup.    You're shooting great so I'd say you found the right combo!!    Best of luck this year!!

I have some friends that shoot them and they like 'em tikk.  I still shoot the old Gold Tips Made in the USA.

I can't wait to hear your stories.

Best of luck!!

can't say that I have. I shoot carbon express. either way, all carbons are miles ahead of the old aluminum shafts I use to shoot.

good luck. practice until it becomes automatic. that will help when the fever hits

I'm not referring to a Robin Hood. I'm saying when you get a bow set up right and shoot at the same bull with 3-4 shots you will start ripping fletchings off the arrows that are already in the target.  It gets expensive. A Robin Hood is when you one arrow sticks into another arrow. 

I never had that problem until I got my Drenalin. The 2nd group I shot I busted a Robin Hood. This happened at the bow shop the day I got it.  He set it all up, I shot one group and handed him the bow, he adjusted the sight a little, then I shot 2 more arrows and the 2nd one robin hooded the first one. I couldn't believe it. Then about once a week I was dropping off arrows and picking up others I had refletched. He finally told me to stop shooting at the same bull if I wanted to stop paying him to refletch my arrows....Duh!   Why didn't I think of that?  I don't think I've had an arrow refletched since.

@ least you were doing a good job of keeping a steady stream of business going for you favorite bow shop!   :2)

I am so ready to send a few arrows towards a target.   I'm still waiting on a friend of mine to find his extra release.  He misplaced his last year and bought another one,  but he found the missing one so he is willing to give me his spare.  I'll give it another week but losing patience, September 14 is coming real soon.

Yes it is. It will be here before you know it. But you have time.

Another word of advice if I may. Don't shoot more than 12-15 arrows per practice session. Shoot 2-4 arrows then go retrieve your arrows giving your muscles time to rest. Eventhough you may not realize it or feel it your muscles tire and your accuracy will suffer. THis is something I wish someone would have told me when I first started into archery. I spent many frustrating evenings trying to sight in my bow when all that was wrong was my bow muscles were tired. Now days I shoot about 9-10 and I'm done.
