Wondering if anyone has had like issues with this arrow and insert combination. Some are shearing off inside the target, others are bending, some are staying true (for now).

Target: Murrell Yellow Jacket
Arrows: VAP TKO Elite 300 cut to 30”
Bow: PSE Omen Pro (2007), 74#, 29-1/2” DL

The bow was just tuned when I bought the arrows, and the paper looked perfect after tuning.

Bottom image is comparing a bent insert to a straight.

Only issue I had was a couple pulled out of arrow so had to buy replacements and glued them in better. Could be when you pull them out of target? I had a morrel target that was tough to get arrows out of.

That could be part of it... they do like to grab the target with that lip on their way out for sure.
I asked one of the archery shops here locally, they suggested changing to the SS inserts for higher strength. They said the aluminum inserts are prone to bending
