    Hi Eric, I took a chance on a new type of arrow last year Valkyrie Arrow Systems https://valkyriearchery.com/product-category/arrows/ emailed Brebt Hahn (owner) and he answered some of my questions. Then I ordered them, went to the range and tested the 2 different arrows and 3 target tips. Following that I landed on a specific arrow. Moose hunt was in 5 months, so got dialed in and then started shooting the broadhead range and was set. Fast forward to fall (harvested a 3x3 Moose and an 8 pointer with the). The Moose was a pass thru and ran 10 yards and went down. Taking these to CO this year for an Elk DIY! Good luck!

    Eric, you definitely are right, nothing beats having the equipment to make the arrows yourself. However here is what I have noticed in my experience. The ACU carbon process of Easton is pretty consistent. I nock tuned the arrows by shooting them bareshaft. For the most part all them shot the same without any nock rotation. However a few I did need to rotate the nock to get them to behave. Carbon express nock tune each arrow. Day 6 nock tuned each arrow. Gold Tip nock tuned each arrow. Victory RIP TKO’s come with a label on them indicating where the spine is located. I “trusted” their word and found most of the arrows to group and tune without rotating the nock. I shoot them really well and scored my highest 3D rounds with them. P.S. it was the sport version which is the cheaper .006 straightness. I really said all that to say in my opinion and experience, if you’re gonna dive that deep you need to tune each arrow yourself to you and how you shoot.

    I shared some links to some items needed to build your own arrows. I’d have to look to see what the final cost on some custom builds are, but in the long run taking the plunge and buying your own will pay for itself. Outside of glue, fletching, alcohol, and q-tips should be a good start.
