    I shoot an 85lb Bob Lee longbow. With all other constant weave shafts I would crack the ends where the front instert stops when shooting broadheads into heavy 3D foam. Everyone has experienced breaking arrows when shooting into game, and I was tired of spending money on new shafts. These hammerheads are very thick near the front attachment, and I ordered the heaviest shafts. So far they are unbreakable and shoot great. The speed is a little slower, but the penetration is excellent! The price is very very good for what you get, and these are my primary shafts now, throwing out the rest.

    Things were great until I went stumping. In just a few hours i had mushroomed the tip on 2 arrows. If the insert were bigger so it covered the full tip it might help. I was told if I used collars it would solve the problem but you can't put them on after the inserts are glued. Would recommend with caution notes. Not for stump shooting.

    Comments about Arrow Dynamics Hammer Head Series Carbon Shafts:

    If you're like me and have a heavier draw weight and longer draw length (67# at 30.5") then these carbon arrows might be your solution. I tried several different test kits and every arrow bareshafted extremely weak (some of this can be attributed to my bad form...) even with the lightest of weight up front. Then I shot the Hammerhead Heavy and everything came together - very forgiving arrow that is accurate and durable. I now have an arrow that is approximately 12 GPP and 20% FOC! My only complaint is the large outside diameter of the shaft. It creates an awkward lip when butted up against any size field tip or the ferrule of almost any broadhead on the market. Even the inserts don't fit quite right. I believe that this lip, combined with the large OD, affects penetration. I haven't tested this on any game yet - these are just anecdotal observations while target shooting. I'll keep tweaking that part of the setup. In the meantime, I have no reservations about using my current setup for most any game in North America.

      Comments about Arrow Dynamics Hammer Head Series Carbon Shafts:

      I prev. bought Ham'heads for my 80lb longbow and wanted to try the 'Lites for my 45lb longbow. I also had two carbon express spined shafts, one Gold Tip, and one Beman. All of them could be tuned, but visually, the hammerheads vibrate less when they impact the target and hit where I look which gives me confidence. I love there durability, I have never broken one yet.

      I Sent Mine Back

      Best Uses

        Comments about Arrow Dynamics Hammer Head Series Carbon Shafts:

        The idea of forward weighted shafts with more strength on the front end, and the ability to use the metal collars to protect the forward end of the shaft sounded great. However, I found that these were TOO thick and heavy at the front, and too thin and light at the rear. I could not get them to fly right at all bare-shaft. So, given the high cost, I never fletched them, and just sent them back. This is just my personal opinion, not saying the product wouldn't work well for others.

        Instead, I'll just use the Traditional Only shafts with the collars,or even Easton Axis without collars for target shooting, and do my own weighting by means of heavier points or inserts.

        Service and delivery comments:

        But, the service was great on the original shipment, and even on the return. I got a pretty decent refund, even tho I ordered cut shafts with inserts installed, and I was prepared to be told that there are no refunds for cut shafts. So, high marks for 3 Rivers, and I just ordered a product that was not right for me.

            Excellent product. Very true to design. Shot perfectly out of all my bows with the same tip weight of 125gr. 38#, 45#, 50#, 55# AND 57#

            Very durable. Only issue I had was the insert fit, which was cured with the carbon collars.

            Comments about Arrow Dynamics Hammer Head Series Carbon Shafts:

            I've shot the Arrow Dynamics Traditional shafts for years, but found the Hammer Head concept intriguing. Hence, I purchased a dozen. My only complaint is that the inserts being sent with the shafts are appropriate for the Traditional shafts but not for the Hammer Heads. The company should manufacture inserts that will sit flush with the shaft rather than sitting on the inner lip of the shaft.

              Comments about Arrow Dynamics Hammer Head Series Carbon Shafts:

              These shafts are every bit as good as the grizzly stik shafts and they have a non glare surface. Best of all they are made in the USA. We need to purchase products made in the USA and support American workers. I shoot a 50 pound Dwyer longbow. I purchased the Hammer Head lites and after testing several differant grains of field points I found that the 175 grain flew the best. I will find out this fall how well they penetrate on big game.
