I have had a siege for 2 seasons, great bow, HOWEVER do yourself a favor and only shoot arrows with the new alpha aluminum insert nocks. I switched out all my old alpha nocks to the aluminum style, fairly easy. If you use the old style, some most likely will fail, causing lost/damaged arrows, and string failure, from my experience (several, 6-8? failures).
I am curious where you got them and do they just pull out ( the old ones) and then insert these? Dont want to risk any issues

Thanks for the advice. It didn’t come with bolts so I need to get some. Any recommendations?
Several guys on here have WWB make their arrows. He’s a member on here. I just bought some dragon claw arrows from Dave at Wyvern creations(website) to try out. They came with the new alpha nock HP bushings installed and the new alpha nocks. 16”

Bow has arrived, this thing is smaller then I imagined even though I watched videos, saw pictures of people holding it, etc..

I like how compact it is, can’t wait to shoot it but need bolts first. That will have to wait until after the new year once I get done paying off presents for my kids.

It’s killing me to just look at it knowing I can’t do anything until January 🤬

It's pretty surprising how small they are. I bought one unseen. I've been using the Evo Center Punch 16s in it. Probably not the best arrows, but so far I haven't had any accuracy or durability issues. I've only shot the new HP aluminum bushing system and it's been 100% for me. You can get the bushings and nocks from various suppliers or Tenpoint themselves.

BlackSunshyne,

I appreciate your comments about the bolts. I’ll look into them as soon as I can.

Hello, you can get them from wyvern creations, since you dont have arrows, I would suggest getting custom arrows that are spine indexed, 16-17" with the new nocks. the bow has same hole accuracy, with the same arrow. I numbered and "grouped" my arrows as non-indexed arrows can shoot POI differently, although consistent. some spot on- some always 1.25" left, etc. I think high quality spine indexed; weight matched arrows would fix that. worth the investment to get optimum results from a high-performance bow.
