    A/C/E - which points would you get?

    Just a hypothetical question at the moment regarding Easton ACE's. Is there any strong disadvantages or advantages with going for break off points vs the inserts and matching screw in points?

    A few things I was wondering like the screw inserts appear to be very very long - which should give a good amount of glueing surface but is it likely to stiffen the arrow more compared to using the break offs?

    Thanks

    I would only use the monobloc points. The weight consistency of the two part points was never as good as I liked, and the piles tended to come loose.

    And you could only get up to 110 gn with the 2 part points and I prefer 120 gn.

    Thanks. I guess the coming loose could be sorted out with a dab of thread lock but weight inconsistency is definitely not great
