They have heavier brass inserts and heavier steel adapters to make the judos match weight. The reasons for dedicated arrows are that I still stump a little in hunting season, I use these to shoot a few shots into a stump or dirt right before heading into the woods and because I don’t want to subject my hunting arrows to the same abuse unless I’m taking a shot at animal. Best, dwc

Can’t argue with that at all.

I do tend to use the same few shafts for stump shooting but I think I’d like to have all of my shafts (minus the point) the same weight.

I should stress that I’m shooting carbon and I really try to avoid putting heat to the shaft to melt the hotmelt to change inserts, etc and GrizStiks are expensive. I’ve ruined a few while trying to remove inserts with heat… I’d like to set-up the shaft and be able to shoot whatever point I need to. I don’t want to have certain shafts that weigh more than others because I have extra weight installed permanently inside the shaft.

I really don’t understand why Zwickey doesn’t offer Judo in different weights because there is definately a market for them.
