The Bone Collector series is smaller diameter, slightly heavier shaft than the standard Beman ICS Hunter
Since you're looking at Cabela's and if you want another option or want to save a few $$ for now, might check out the Cabela's Stalker Extreme 55/75 or Carbon hunter 55/75.
The Stalker Extreme is basically a Beman ICS Hunter with the Cabela's logo and standard Easton/Beman insert instead of the ViBrake the Beman ICS uses now.
Friend of mine shoots them and does well at 3D shoots, plus took a mule doe two years ago and a 5x5 bull elk last season.
The Carbon Hunter, which my son has for his bow, matches the Beman ICS Bowhunter
I stand corrected. This is actually the first Bone Collector item that isn't just a sticker and a name change. I even called Easton/Beman and she laughed and said, yes, this one is more than a sticker change.
The BC is part of the MFX line.
Thanks for all the input I went with ics hunters from beamen from this site http://www.huntersfriend.com/ it was about the best pricing i found:)
That is a good place to go, for product and info.
i realized you have already purchesed your arrows, but i have a comment about the bone collector arrows. i just started in archery 2 years ago and have bought several half dozens of arrows.(due to breaking or losing) i bought the bone collectors with the H.I.T. inserts last year in aug. i shot them almost every day, but if i messed up a shot or missed the target and the arrow hit the ground it almost always broke. the insert is inside the arrow (H.I.T.), so if you hit something hard it jams the tip into the shaft. i also bought the ics hunters and i could consistently put them in the ground and they wouldnt break!!! for the money i paid for the bone collectors i wasnt happy. just my 2cents
Was looking at these because of this thread.
