Re: TAC15/ 15i

They are indeed Rages. The Rocky Mtn Snypers were a much better design in my opinion, but I wanted to test some Rages so I got them and had early deployment when I first tested them. So I fixed the problem.

The TAC shaft is a filament wound or wrapped carbon fiber shaft. Cross-weave as it is advertised so that the fibers run in opposite directions. This makes for a better spine supposedly, or more generally consistent. That is a topic we are trying to bring to light.

I stopped by the Grim Reaper booth at the ATA show and looked over the heads there. They are great looking heads and I know guys who have great success with them. Not too many guys that use them don't just love them.

Re: TAC15/ 15i

I just came from a local PSE Pro shop. I picked up a 3012 Special Bitzenburger nock receiver an some Tac 15 Dura Vanes. He ordered me a set of bare shafts with components. he didn't think any would want them because the price is about $85.00. So bottom line is you now can get them.

Yes, but they won't be available for about a month. And the inserts and nocks will come installed and not loose. So you can get shafts, just not "bare" shafts.

Re: TAC15/ 15i

I will speak to the Pse rep and pass on the preferences of the Tac users.

I'll inform him on the issues and concerns I've read in these blogs.

He is or was a competition shooter, so I'm sure he understands the need to be precise.

The local dealer is under the impression that the components will be sold separately. Stating that Pse has reached an agreement with Firenock and will offer their D nock. Which the user needs to be able to replace without risking damage to the arrow shaft.

I hope this is the case as it will please many Tac 15 owners.

Re: TAC15/ 15i

I just left the outdoor show at the casino. I was able to speak with the regional PSE rep. He told me that PSE now sells the Tac 15 arrows as a bare shaft and component set. He was in Tucson AZ yesterday and said that they had plenty of bare shaft sets available for shipment. The only wait period is on a 50 pack of white fletching, which will be 0ne week.

He also stated that Bitzenburger now sells a jig made just for the Tac 15.
you don't have to rotate the tac 15 arrow to fletch it.

I don't know the price. he recommended I call them direct to buy one.

hope this info helps everyone.
