    Even though the "Bone Collector" series is cool, you do have a good point.

    I didn't mean to come off that way. I just didn't want you thinking you were getting something extra quality because it had the Bone Collector logo on it. I think the logo is cool myself. I wish I could come up with something really cool so I could get people to pay extra money for the MLN1963 logo. Would you like to be first?

    I've used Beman ICS Hunter carbon arrows for about 15yrs now...matter of fact, have a few that have survived my field/hunting abuse for at least 10yrs.

    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.

    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

    Default Beman Bone Collector recall

    Hey all,
    Was looking at these because of this thread.

    from http://www.beman.com/recall

    Bone Collector Arrow Recall
    During a recent quality inspection, Beman discovered that the structural integrity of a small percentage of Beman Bone Collector arrows may have been compromised. We are recalling arrows from three specific batch numbers shipped to retailers and distributors between August 5th and September 14th.

    Only the arrows from these three batch numbers are affected:
    Size 340 with batch number 107545200
    Size 400 with batch number 107545100 and batch number 107747900.

    If you've recently purchased Beman Bone Collector arrows, please click "Help me determine if my product is included in this recall" to learn how to determine if your arrows are affected by the recall and what your next steps should be.
