    Hope you know that Beman is owned and operated by Easton. That's why so many Beman arrow shafts are just clone of those marketed under the Easton banner. Not saying that one is better than the other, but the quality of like shafts would be equal.

    Exactly, although it was more recent. Blackhawk Archery used to be it's own entity. I forget the year, but it was like around 2006 that Gold Tip bought them. Since then the Vapor line has been diminshed a lot. From a business stand point it just doesn't make much sense to have redundant products. One shaft made by Balckhawk was their CAA line which were pretty favorable in specs and quality to the Easton ACC's, but at about 2/3 the cost. These were then discontinued and funny how it works, but that's about the time the Korean (CE) arrows seemed to take a big jump in price to the point of being rediculous.
