Good Field Points
They are great, I have hit a cinder block several times with these field points and they still shoot great.

nice to match broadheads
I used the arrow points that are the same grain weight as the broadheads I use so I could sight in the crossbow with accuracy.

Diameter wasn't as close as it should be.
Field tips are pretty hard for a manufacturer to mess up. This are pretty good as far as field tips go and should serve most shooters just fine. The threads were easy to twist in with no burs or bad threads. I checked the weight on them and found they were all pretty close to the 100 grains that I ordered. They also group well for me too. I would have given them five stars except for the fact that the diameter wasn't very close and that caused problems with my inserts and the fronts of my arrow shafts that might end up being expensive in the long run for some 3D shooters. Here's why I say that. I double checked my arrows with a calibrated micrometer I barrowed from work and they were exactly 9/32" diameter. The field tips were in a package marked 9/32", but they were quite a bit smaller when I screwed them into the arrow shafts. Our 3D range has quite a few members and sometimes a shot goes completely through the target and into the dirt. With the smaller diameter of the tip your inserts get scared up on the sides pretty bad because the edge of the insert sticks out farther than the edge of the field tip. The field tip normally makes a hole big enough that the insert can easily pass though if the tip's the same size as the insert. With these being smaller there isn't a smooth transition from tip to insert and if there's a pebble or something hard the edge of the insert catches it. This wasn't a problem for me with field tips that the size matched on. If you shoot expensive arrows like I do at a little over $190 a dozen that's something you really don't want. If I had it to do over again I would have just spent a little extra and gone with Slik Tips again.
