Hi Friends, I would like to try the new CXL-SS shafts. What do you think about them? I shoot 3D, up to 50 yards.

I have been shooting easton lightspeed 3D and I am happy with them, but I want to try a bigger shaft to cut the lines.

Thanks
David

The CXL ss is a great 3-D arrow and they take a great deal of punishment. Although I now shoot Linejammers I shot CXL's for 2 years and was very pleased with them. you can match them with Carbon Express parabolic adjustable points for precise tuning of weight and speed. Many of the top pros shoot this arrow in both ASA and IBO. Your friend in archery, Old Man Archer:luck:

The LineJammers are larger in dia and also offered in SS. I am not sure the advantage of the CXL over the LineJammers??

The CXL is a better choice for lower draw weight or shorter draw length other than that my choice is the Linejammer due to it being larger.

I've used them for a couple of years now and really like them, they are very consistent and accurate.

Thanks all, I will try them and post feedback.

LineJammers are not FITA legal, that is the reason.

I love mine. Been shooting them now for about a month and have had to stop shooting at the same spot even at 40 yards. Very consistent arrows. I don't have one flyer in the dozen. I guess that being spineselected matters. Very impressed so far.

Hi again friends,

I have tried the new CXL SS and they are awesome, I put four arrows in a 5" dia group at 55 yards several times. I think they will be my arrows for 3D this season.

Thanks all.

CXL's are great arrows and with adjustable parabolic tips and inserts very versatile. I have mine fletched with 187 flex fletch and they fly perfectly. I also played around with nock end. I have some with the new pin nock kit and some with regular nock. The regular nock works just fine and weighs 10 gns. less giving you a better FOC. I also took acteone to the gaudy blue and now have a nice black stealth arrow with no logo.

Shot a tree the other day and arrow didn't survive. Broke of about 4 in up clean. Maybe not the most durable but they do fly great.

Definitely not durable if shot into something but very accurate. I have 350 spine and cut them to 29" and have to use 125gr tips to get close to spine being correct with my setup was hoping for a lighter arrow. Shouldn't have cut them and just bought adjustable points.
