I have some Day 6 and some Widowmaker shafts. They are both real good shafts.

I am currently shooting Easton Axis FMJ arrows. They are skinny (.204ID), but not micro diameter (.166 ID).

I’m shooting day 6 arrows and components. I like the heck out of them so far.

I shoot Easton 6mm shafts, which are very close to 9/32" OD. Makes for a good match to many BHs and easy to find field points, and not requiring use of a colar. That's a little big to be considered micro.

Micro diameter shafts are fine. Easy to get real good FOC since their weight per inch is low. Consider aluminum nocks instead of the plastic ones (Victory makes nice ones). For a robust hunting arrow get a shaft that has long internal inserts (Gold Tip Kinetic Pierce) or even better use an aftermarket insert from Ethics Archery.

I like the Black Eagle Instinct arrows. The outserts seem to be pretty durable but a bit difficult to install. I had one nock break after 500+ shots, so its not a huge issue but did happen.

Iron Will makes an insert with impact collar system for micro shafts if you are wanting to upgrade.

This would be a setup Iíd be looking at hard. Ethics or iron will components would be a huge add on. I started shooting micro dia in my recurve and liked them enough that I built 2 dozen for my compound. Way fast, flatter, less drift etc

I'm sure I could come up with some idea to tempt you to switch. Maybe you need the Valkyrie system next season...

OP, I shoot 5mm Axis Trads or Black Eagle Renegades. I am a huge fan of the Easton brass HIT inserts, personally.

why do you always tempt me to spend more money! Especially knowing I have a new bow on order and I'm still stashing money away to buy your black widow one day
