Bob Robb I recently walked into the Victory Archery headquarters in Poway, California, where I met up with General Manager Steve Greenwood, whom I’ve known for more than 30 years as a passionate and highly accomplished bowhunter and a forward-thinking manufacturer and marketer of arrow shafts. Steve and his staff live and breathe bowhunting, and it became quickly apparent why this company is making one of the hottest arrow shafts on the market today.

I’ve found Victory shafts very durable and easy to tune with several different bows, and they have gone right through every critter I’ve shot with them, including big-bodied whitetails and thick-chested black bears. Victory is a company that enjoys a great reputation among serious archers and bowhunters — a reputation that is rapidly spreading, for good reason. Here’s why.
