That will put meat on the table and in the freezer.

Keep them in the middle.

Re: Arrows... What are you shooting?

I shoot EASTON CARBON STORM arrows, 400 spine with a 50/65 pound approval rating, and plan on upgrading to the 340 spine after I get a Mathews HeliM. Reason why I use the EASTON CARBON STORM series of arrows is because they are cheap (price wise), the quality of them is pretty good, they are accurate, they always return to being perfectly straight if bent, and I've never had one break on me. I know that there are some arrows out there with better quality, but to be honest I've never had a problem with them. I can highly recommend getting them if you can find them, I get mine from my local bowstore where they cut them to my specific requested leangth on the spot. Sincerely- Ace762.

Re: Arrows... What are you shooting?

The Archery industry and AMO have up graded the production of carbon shafts to the point that there are almost no bad arrows. Unlike back in the days of
cheap aluminum and fiber glass shafts. More spendy but, of much better quality and durability.

The shafts are pretty much the same . It now boils down to consumer loyalty
and what you are willing to pay. I have made up a dozen from 3 or 4 different
manufacturers. They all perform pretty well. I haven't tried mix and match, but
I suspect they would work.

Keep them in the middle.

Ol'Gator,

that sounds like quite a stick. What's the lenght? They all weigh the same?
What's the draw weight? Holding weight? on the bow. Weight and percentage
forward of center? Spine check them?

Re: Arrows... What are you shooting?

I have shot several different carbon arrows but could not find one that was stiff enough to match my bow. I shoot a Hoyt Katera XL, 31.75" draw set at 73#.

Finally I found the Easton X-series FMJ Dangerous Game arrow. Full length 32" @ 17.5 grains/in with a 75 grain HIT insert and 100 grain G5 Montec broadhead. These things are bomb-proof.

All together my arrows weigh 735 grains. Most accurate arrow I have found for my bow.

What I lack in velocity I more than make up for it in momentum. And hunting in the timber for elk the majority of my shots are in the 10 - 20 yd range so I don't need the flat trajectory you get from faster arrows.

All around the perfect arrow for my bow and the way I hunt.
