Hot New TAC15/15i Arrows

Hi All,
It's been a while since I've published any entirely new threads, but I thought it was time to let everyone know that there's a brand new arrow on the market that's being made specifically to address the needs of the TAC15/15i crossbow and others like it that require a longer, stiffer spine for crossbows shooting at 400+ fps.

These brand new arrows I'm talking about are being sold by Firenock. That's right, like it or not our friend Dorge has been at it again only this time he's come up with a shaft that I can tell you first hand is the best shaft for the TAC15 crossbows that I've ever seen or heard about.

The specifications for this new shaft are as follows: 0.001"straightness, total length 26.15", .180 spine at the back .125 mid section and closer to .80 at the front.

With close to no weight penalty when compare to the 250 spine for the current Aerobolt II. This shaft is 0.384 grains more weight per inch, but the spine is WAY heavier and Dorge can reduce length for the inner.

It will be called the Aerobolt II 200 and will become available within two or three weeks according to the people at Firenock. It is also the foundation for the new 1000 grain Crossbow arrow name the Dragon Slayer for 2013. I cannot wait show these new arrows off! Along with the fact that these arrows were designed to out-perform anything on the market, they are also being offered for a small additional fee with the spines market on their stiff side so anyone can index their nocks for optimal performance and tuning.

No other manufacture world wide is offering shafts of this quality with this type of custom matching and tuning work involved.

Now let's also touch on the penetration and performance factors. At a weight factor of .384 grains per inch greater than the standard Aerobolt II's, these shafts are untouchable in the amount of K.E. (Kinetic Energy) released on impact.

These arrows are not only devastating for White Tail deer, but these are exactly what you're looking for when hunting large big game animals such as Elk, Moose, Grizzly Bear or African big game animals. These shafts will easily handle all broadheads from the lightest 100 grain heads all the way up to and including heads in the 160 and 175 grain weight category.

If you are looking for one set of arrows that are absolutely the finest materials and built to out perform the rest of the field, then look no further than these gems.

For more information and availability please contact Dorge at Firenock, but you'll be waiting behind me, since my order is already standing to insure I get some before anything changes.

They are available in 2 vane, 3 vane and four vane configurations, but for the TAC15/15i I would suggest maintaining the standard four fletch unless you've completed the arrow rest conversion to a QAD Ultra Rest.

Re: Hot New TAC15/15i Arrows

I've been testing these arrows, too. From tip to nock, these are the best you can buy. I'm impressed with the accuracy and consistency I'm getting with the stock PSE arrows from my TAC 15- 3/4" 30 yard group for 6 arrows, each shot into a paper target then removed before shooting the next arrow. However, Dorge's arrows are shooting in the same hole.

It is great that there are now a lot of other good arrows out there, but Dorge sets the standard for what you can do with a bow.

Re: Hot New TAC15/15i Arrows

Thanks 755.

I have been looking for different arrows for my TAC 15 and have not been able to find
something heavier.

I have always opted for heavier shafts on all of my bows because of Kinetic energy
and quietness.

I am realy interested in the 1000 grain arrows and will be checking them out.

Thanks for the heads up.

If you want to shoot length-wise through a city-bus, that 1000-grainer is for you!

This sounds a bit overkill for deer, given that the standard arrow will probably blow through 3 deer standing side-by-side, if you wanted to wait for them to line up.

Hi Twanger,
Different needs for different folks. When hunting on the African continent that 1000 grain arrow has a real purpose.

Even though most people don't believe in the existence of Dragons or Dinosaurs any longer, it's always comforting to know that should these beasts show up unexpectedly in anybodies neighborhood, we have the type of arrow needed to deal with the unexpected!!!!

Dream big and imagine the type of penetration power and energy these things will provide for those who need more power.

Yes, I bet the 1000-grainer would be just the thing for elephant.

Re: Hot New TAC15/15i Arrows

When an elephant shows up at my place, it's either the 1,000 grainer or Jello.

Everybody knows that elephants can't stand on Jello without slipping and killing themselves, so when I think there's an elephant sneaking around the house I break out the Jello and smear it all over the floors.

Works every time!!!!
