Super Slam 78 Digital arrows

8 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has shot the new Super Slam 78 Digital arrows. I know one guy who has and all he could say was aluminum is back. He said it was the best shooting arrow he ever shot for a hunting bow. I would like to he some more peoples thoughts on them. Thanks guys.

I'll never give up my carbons. I spent too much money on getting new aluminum arrows because the other ones bent on me! My carbons shoot very well for me anyways, why would I change back to the archaic aluminum arrows? Just my opinion.

I don't know if I'd say aluminum is back... alum shafts have been on the way out for the past 5 years. Every year more models and sizes are being discontinued. The XX78 just got a new face-lift... same shaft it's always been. Technology has come a long way in arrow shafts. It's hard to compete against carbons.

I shot them. I'm done with carbons for a while. Same wieght arrow was moving faster and had way more penatration. I'll finsh out the year with what I have. But next year its the super slams. As far as dings or bends I can deal with it.

I'm the happiest I have ever been since changing over to carbon shafts and thats where I will stay until a new arrow comes out that is proven to be better.

I'll stay with carbons also! I ran a shop for 13 yrs, and have straighten enough arrows to last my life time! grin

I'm still shooting carbon wrapped aluminums. One reason I'll never go back to all aluminums is noise. Going through the woods with carbons is tons quieter. No metallic clinks means more deer.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
