If you wonder how loud and what it looks like when one shoots AeroBolt II, here is a video provided by a new customer shooting his AeroBolt II 100 yards under 15 miles breeze and he has shot AeroBolt II for only 3 days.

WHY AeroBolt II IS PRICED AND BUILT IN THIS WAY?
Most people will find that most crossbow arrows are performing quite well. But why AeroBolt II is better than the other arrows? Why the price of AeroBolt II is significantly higher? Why Firenock built AeroBolt II like this? What are the reasons behind these questions? One will understand and be convinced why after reading the below: a short review of research and development of AeroBolts and its design and technologies. Furthermore, with better understanding of AeroBolt II technologies, one should acquaint what one can expect and what one can achieve the most from shooting with AeroBolts.
Back in 2009 when Jim Kempf of Scorpyd requested for a heavier spine crossbow bolt due to the introduction of the RDT165, the concept of AeroBolt was born and built. AeroBolt I was based on Gold Tip Laser II, Laser III, other Gold Tip shafts, and Gold Tip Series 22 insert. At that time, AeroBolts were nothing more than a piece of Gold Tip shaft ( 0.298” OD) Laser II or Laser III glued with a Gold Tip Series 22 insert. This process gave Jim the arrow he needed at that time as this configuration gave the crossbow arrow a much heavier resulting spine and it lessened the issue of not locating the spine due to dual shaft construction. During the testing of this arrow, interesting facts were discovered and these leaded us to develop new concepts, break through manufacturing processes, improved design, which these resulted in at least 4 US Patents which are being utilized in the current series of AeroBolt II crossbow arrows.
From the above, one should understand that AeroBolt with hybrid insert system will oscillate less than other arrows. With Aerovane, AeroBolt can use less FOC as it is using lift instead of drag to spin arrow. The combination of hybrid insert system and Aerovane make AeroBolt to oscillate less, stabilize itself faster and achieve gyro spin faster during its flight. Achieving gyro spin means less energy will be lost and now all the energy is stored in the arrow to make a flatter flight and thus the arrow can become more accurate.
